Labour’s ‘Stop Steve’ Campaign Backfires
The Mystery of Dennis Skinner’s Ejection from the NEC

Bolsover’s famous beast, much-loved by Labour, was voted off the NEC yesterday to the bafflement of the party, the anger of members, and the curiosity of the political commentariat.

Dennis Skinner is the authentic voice of Labour at a time when authenticity is sorely lacking in its limp-wristed, intellectual leftiness. He works incessantly for the party, speaking, organising, geeing up the troops.

Why would  John Healey stand against him?

Maybe he didn’t.

Maybe he was standing against Steve Rotheram, the moaning member for Merseyside.

After Ed Miliband’s posing with the Sun, Rotheram criticised him. Said it shouldn’t have happened. Sought meetings with his leader’s office. Rubbed salt in the open wound that is the party leader.

Is it possible that the leader’s office was so petty, so spiteful, so incompetent as to organize against Steve Rotheram and end up decapitating one of Labour’s most prominent assets?

    As I’ve said before and I’ll keep saying, Labour DON’T WANT to win the next election. If Labour were to be elected next year, they’d shit themselves. End of. Why else would they ditch Skinner and keep ‘Unelect-Ed’?

    They’d rather sit in opposition, whinging and whining about austerity and everything that the Tories do to rebuild the economy, following 13 years of Labours deliberate and rampant disassembly and scorched Earth policy, and get people back into work for at least another four years.

    And why not? All the benefits of being a taxpayer funded MP but without any of the responsibility of actually being in government and being responsible for anything. Then, when the economy is fixed and the country has money again, Labour will be desperate to get back in to spend / waste the same money, accumulated by the same methods that they are currently feigning their horror at. Tw*ts.

    The Growler says:

    Surely it should be the membership of the Liebore party should vote on who should be on the NEC members, or is it just like the Cons where a select few who is on their main executive committee, hence the leadership can stop any “trouble makers ” and awkward question makers being on a compliant committee.

    Mycroft says:

    He carries the concrete grey, lowering shadow of a John Osborne ‘Kitchen Sink’ drama around with him.

    He was even down t’pit and dragged himself up and out of it.

    He is more cliché than dinosaur in my opinion.

    The problem with that is the poor soul has no real drama to impart, there are no pits, there are few, if any, lavs at the end of the garden and no-one really bathes in a Tin bath in the kitchen filling it from numerous boilings of a kettle.

    Because he has no dramatic fundament left, he has resorted to being a comedian, not a very good comedian, but he tries bless him.

    It is all he left to give the world… crap comedy.

    It’s pitiable really, the World moved on and left him there in the Kitchen Sink drama of his mind.

    Just as there is a ‘Grand House’ for useless pollies to go with some sort of peerage perhaps there ought to be a a House of Dead Reds where he could quietly be shuffled off to perfect his comedy act.

    Basically, he serves no real purpose and is essentially f’cking useless.

    Oh, really? says:

    Dennis Skinner is the authentic voice of Labour

    That might be precisely why Dennis Skinner had to go.

    Correct. An unfunny artificial dolt who thinks he’s top billing with
    those …oh so hilarious quips. Same sort of category as Prescott
    and Vaz. Accepted idiots.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
