EXCLUSIVE : Glasgow East Labour Fakes “93 Year-Old War Hero” Endorsement

This is really stooping low and a sign of the Labour Party’s total desperation to hang on to Glasgow East. This picture is taken from Labour’s election propaganda (see also here). The by-election candidate Margaret Curran says

Some of the people that I have met out and about over the past 9 years as a local MSP have been absolutely inspirational. Today I met a man who was up there with the very best that the East End has to offer.

Mr McGuiness is a 93 year old – who looks not a day past 70, by the way – living in a sheltered housing complex that I went to visit today.

Mr McGuiness fought with the Desert Rats in World War II and was treated in hospital for shrapnel wounds. He also fought in Yugoslavia with the partisans against the German occupation.

He reminded me of all the sacrifices our older generation made so that we can enjoy freedom today. I hope every single voter in the East End uses their hard-fought right to vote on July 24th.

Having met Mr McGuiness today, I am reminded we owe it to people like him to use our democratic right to vote.

What more could you ask for? A smiling endorsement with the candidate from a proud medal holder and old war hero who fought for democracy. Vote Labour!

Mr McGuinness looks in good shape for 93. He looks more like 67. With good reason, he is 67. He was 4 years old when the war ended. The picture above is of George McGuinness a lifelong left-wing Labour activist whom Downing Street got an MBE as a reward.

Did you somehow get a different impression? You don’t think that was their deliberate intention?

UPDATE : The picture and the story have been up over a week, yet within minutes of this story being posted the picture was removed and the article has been drastically edited. Too late., they are also deleting the dozens of incoming mocking comments. The story now has no picture and refers to Mr John Hipson. John Hipson will be pleased to know that Margaret Curran was so impressed with meeting him she could not even remember his name.
