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

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
