The Electoral Reform Society’s Katie Ghose is all over the papers this morning claiming to be “independent” and complaining that the boundary changes are terribly unfair. Nothing to do with fewer seats meaning the serial carpetbagger is even less likely to make it to parliament. Ghastly Ghose has previously put herself forward as a Labour candidate in Stoke on Trent North, Brighton Kemptown, Grimsby and York. The parachuting former aide to Greville Janner has alas never been selected. Given she so desperately wants to be an MP, is Katie really the best “independent” voice to comment on boundary reforms?
Just why is perennial Labour loser Katie Ghose finding it so impossible to find a seat? Ghastly Ghose has been rejected by Brighton Labour, Grimsby Labour and York Labour, but with her Electoral Reform Society hat on, she reckons she’s found the answer:
Today we’re pleased to launch our new report, Women in Westminster: predicting the number of female MPs.
We’ve found that the number of female MPs is set to rise after this year’s election – but progress is slow. Why?
In large part, it’s because of our broken voting system.
Definitely nothing to do with the Oxford-educated parachuting southerner bagging up her carpets and rolling up at seats across the country without even bothering to change her website from her past failed attempts…
Aspiring carpet-bagger Kate “Ghastly“ Ghose just popped up on Sky News with her Electoral Reform Society boss hat on, having her usual pop at anyone but Labour:
In an extraordinary exchange, Ghose refused to declare she is a committed Labour activist and clearly stated she was not a candidate.
Not for want of trying.
Ghose has been turned down by Brighton Labour, Grimsby Labour and York Labour. No one wants her to be their MP.
“You’re absolutely right, I’m not a candidate for a party”. Nor should she ever be.
By Guido’s count this is the fourth time serial loser and perennial parachutist Katie “Ghastly” Ghose has put herself forward for a Labour seat:

Not deterred by her failure in Stoke-on-Trent North, then defeat in Brighton Kemptown, and then trying and failing to replace Austin Mitchell in Grimsby, now Ghose is going for York, where sitting Labour MP Hugh Bayley has just announced he is standing down. What is it about the Oxford-educated southerner that fails to be inspiring CLPs? Katie has bagged more carpets than Ed Miliband in a mosque…
