Deck the Halls With Cards of Folly

Lucy Rigby, Labour’s pushy candidate in Lincoln, quit her job as a right-on councillor in trendy metropolitan Islington to be parachuted up 141 miles up north. Local Labour members were furious when she won her selection against two Lincoln residents, one commenting that it showed a “middle-class party looking for middle-class MPs”. Now carpetbagger Rigby has stuck two fingers up at her local voters once again. Her Christmas card sent to constituents encouraged them to “Support Lincoln Businesses by Buying Locally this Christmas”. Which wasn’t the cleverest Christmas message, since the cards were printed in Nottingham. Union funded, obviously. Slow clap.

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
