Taxpayer Funded Trade Unions Tried to Shield Crooked Lutfur From Justice

Unison in Tower Hamlets were at the centre of the campaign to help Lutfur Rahman escape corruption charges.

When the investigators went into the council building, Unision picketed the event with a banner saying: “Eric Pickles – Hands off Tower Hamlets… No to racism and Islamophobia”.

Here’s the Tower Hamlets Unison Branch Secretary John McLoughlin ranting about the investigation into Rahman:

A Unison newsletter claimed “Tower Hamlets is no rotten borough” and “the imposition of commissioners, with powers to appoint the key statutory officers responsible for fundamental decisions on services is wholly disproportionate.”

It was written by full time trade union pilgrims, paid by the council to agitate for Unison…

1.3 Million Facebook Views For Savage Miliband Take Down

Labour have managed to get Jo Brand to do their latest election broadcast. Last time she endorsed the party, they went on to suffer their worst ever defeat…

Meanwhile, over on Facebook, this video has spread like the clap:

Robot Ed’s monotone repetitive “these strikes are wrong” hit from 2011 is having something of a renaissance. So far 1.3 million voters have watched and shared it with their voting friends. The classics are always the best…

‘Union Thug’ Proud of Riot and the Labour Manifesto

Here is a hard-hatted Labour supporter captioned “Andy, docker” in the party’s manifesto:

Ordinary “Andy” looks remarkably similar to Andy Green, the Unite convenor at Tilbury Docks and a member of the union’s executive council.

Green proudly boasts that he attended the infamous 2006 dockers’ protest in Strasbourg, which descended into widespread violence.

The BBC reported that “protesters threw firecrackers, stones and metal missiles, smashing windows and causing considerable damage”. 13 dockers were arrested and 12 policemen were injured. But this is how Labour’s poster boy described the day, alongside a picture he posted of the chaos:

“It made me proud to be a docker, to be there fighting for my fellow dockers, fantastic solidarity.”

Green also gave a 5-star review to the ‘Union Thugs‘ Facebook page.

Surely they cannot be the same docker named Andy?

Labour are investigating…

TUC Welcome Tory Pilgrims’ Charter

Brilliant. The TUC have welcomed the Tory manifesto policy of forcing the public sector and businesses to give staff three days off to volunteer:

“Trade unions are the UK’s biggest voluntary groups. This new right will give every union member a guaranteed three days for time off to get involved with union activities.”

Great!

Having spent three years trying to stop the unions agitating on the taxpayer, the government will give them three days off to organise.

Unless of course political activity is excluded from the policy?

A question to which nobody has managed to give Guido a straight answer, yet… 

UPDATE:

A Conservative Party spokesman is adamant:  ‘It definitely won’t include trade unions’.

Sources claims they can exclude union activity (which is not charitable) at a legislation writing level.

We shall see…

UPDATE II: 

TUC hit back again. Frances O’Grady says:

“Confusion is growing by the minute about the Conservatives’ time off for volunteering pledge. First Eric Pickles can’t make up his mind whether it is a right at all, and now the Conservatives say that there will be an approved state list of volunteering opportunities which will not include trade union activity. One wonders whether they will go on to ban help at food banks,  giving advice to workers on zero-hours contracts or community wind power projects.”

Raging Red Len Attacks Miliband’s Media ‘Minnows’

Red Len is angry, specifically at Miliband’s spinners:

“What is also regrettable about the Sunday Times article is the apparent obsession of the media team around Ed Miliband who are constantly seeking opportunities for Ed to “face down Red Len” and Unite in order to show his macho authority.

They deliberately brief stories (off record of course) in order to create a phoney war between “Miliband v McCluskey”. It’s so transparent and crude, it’s getting tedious. 

These minnows should concentrate on the more important task of attacking this government and trying to improve Milliband’s image so we can achieve a Labour victory.”

Will he put his money where his mouth is?

Blair Saves the Day as Labour Block Len’s Girl

Labour have blocked star Unite candidate Karie Murphy from the selection shortlist in Halifax. Murphy, the controversial activist embroiled in the Falkirk fix scandal, is a very close friend of Len McClusky. She confirms:

“I am disappointed that the Labour Party advised the media of my exclusion from the selection list more than three hours before they informed me. It is a credit that the shortlist is made up of so many local women, this is a new and welcome precedent for the Labour Party but it’s regrettable it wasn’t applied more rigorously in the past.”

The weekend papers reported that Tony Blair organised a dinner last week to arrange for a £500,000 donation from Assem Allam, in the event that Unite carry out their threat to pull some of their funding if Murphy was not selected. Guido is sure that Labour’s left-wing grassroots will be extremely grateful for his help in severing that particular union link.

Len is already kicking off:

Kind Mr Tony and his helpful friends to have stiffened Miliband’s resolve with cash. Money, as ever, talks…

Cut Out and Keep: Miliband In Your Pocket

Untitled-6

Need the perfect gift for the union baron in your life? First it was Len McCluskey, then Alex Salmond and now everyone seems keen to get in on the Miliband-in-my-top-pocket craze:

post

Don’t bother spending £12 million in donations to the Labour Party, simply print off the above picture, cut along the dotted line, then tuck the black tab into your suit pocket. Pro tip – mounting Ed on cardboard will make him seem more lifelike.

Quote of the Day

Boris tells the Sun:

“I think it’s a measure of his desperation, isn’t it, that yesterday we had one of the most absurd political spectacles that this country has ever seen. Not since the Tsar and Tsarina prostrated themselves and asked for economic guidance from Grigori Rasputin, has there been such a ridiculous political pilgrimages as the mission of Ed Miliband – the heir of Keir Hardie for heavens sake – to seek economic guidance from Russell Brand.”
