Danczuk to Seumas: “Call Me For Advice”

Simon Danczuk – hounded by the Corbyn wing of the Labour Party on account of his love life – has seen this morning’s revelations about Seumas Milne, and he has some words of advice for the spin chief who worked against him. Simon tells Guido:

“I see Jeremy Corbyn’s right hand man has been photographed with a young lady who is not his wife. I was under the impression that dating younger women wasn’t permitted in Corbyn’s morally pure Labour Party. But for those at the top of the party machine it seems it’s fine to have a colourful love life – just as long as it’s conducted in secret. I’m sure when browsing his morning copy of The Sun Jeremy will have been offended by Seumas’s conduct, will have called him in for a quiet word this morning and will sack him by this evening. If Seumas needs any advice on how to handle these situations he can always give me a call.”

He has a very fair point…

Danczuk Standing as Independent in Rochdale

Simon Danczuk has confirmed to Guido he is standing for re-election as an independent. His nomination papers went in on yesterday afternoon. His candidacy comes despite The Sun splashing on a new rape allegation this morning…

Danczuk said:

 “Corybn’s Labour are taking Rochdale people for granted by assuming they will just vote for any Corbyn extremist that they get to stand. I’m not convinced that Tony Lloyd has a strong enough voice or the energy and enthusiasm to represent Rochdale well. It’s as though Tony, who is 68, sees Parliament as a retirement home, in which he can potter around, rather than a place where he can make Rochdale’s voice heard.”

Danczuk said he had received nominations from “right across the constituency” and has appointed local businesswoman, Emma King as his agent. He continued:

“There is no doubt that a vote for Danczuk is a vote against Corbyn.”

Dan-chucks his name in to the hat despite everything…

Danczuk Quits, Blasts Labour For ‘Celebrating Stalin’

Simon Danczuk has tonight resigned from the Labour Party in a strong sign he may be preparing to stand as an independent candidate in Rochdale. He writes to Labour General Secretary Iain McNicol:

“The Labour Party is no longer the positive political movement that I joined nearly 30 years ago. Indeed, under its current leadership the Labour Party is more interested in serving its own ends rather than those of hard working people for whom the party was originally established. 

“With frontbench spokespeople, such as John McDonnell, continually obsessing about Karl Marx, the benefits of communism and celebrating the reign of Joseph Stalin, I feel the Labour Party has totally lost touch with its social democratic values and indeed with reality in 21st Century Britain.

“Importantly, I am also concerned that the Labour Party has shown itself not to have the interests of Rochdale at heart. The way in which the party are treating the Parliamentary seat of Rochdale as a ‘safe seat’ in to which they can simply parachute a Corbyn supporting candidate is deplorable. The People of Rochdale deserve so much more than being treated with such disdain by the Labour Party.

“With Theresa May likely to win a landslide victory at the General Election and subsequently holding a very large majority in Parliament, Rochdale people need someone who will speak up for them, who will voice their concerns rather than simply being voting fodder for Jeremy Corbyn.”

Sounds like Danczuk is lining himself up for a serious run at the seat…

Danczuk Made to Grovel to Corbynista Who Might Replace Him

Danczuk’s downfall leaves Rochdale up for grabs: it might sound like a safe Labour seat but the LibDems have won it four times since 1972. Danczuk increased Labour’s majority from 889 in 2010 (when he took the seat off the LibDems) to 12,442 in 2015 – UKIP came second and the Tories a close third. If he stands as an independent – which, considering he has been threatening to for months, is highly likely – he would split the Labour vote. Take into account a collapsing UKIP vote and May’s opinion polls, and it becomes plausible the Tories could take seat they last held in 1951. With an independent Danczuk, Rochdale will be a fascinating five-way marginal…

Corbynista-ultra Katy Clark is being talked about as the current favourite to replace Danczuk on the ballot. Clark works in Corbyn’s office as his political secretary so her selection would be the ultimate parachute-job: it’s far from clear if that would fly with the CLP, who have several local councillor candidates lined up to choose from. Last week Clark withdrew from the race to replace Andy Burnham in Leigh, so she’s definitely interested in a Manchester seat. Perhaps she saw Rochdale on the horizon…

Even more galling for Danczuk – Guido hears he was made to speak to Katy Clark as his leader’s office contact regarding his suspension as recently as last week. A source said:

“Simon was on the phone to Katy just days ago trying to get some information from the leader’s office on what was going to happen, whether he would be let back in or not. All the time she was lining herself up for the seat.”

Likewise, a senior Shadow Cabinet minister is said to have called Danczuk warning him of Clark’s intentions. Will Rochdale tolerate a Corbyn shoo-in?

Danczuk on Disciplinaries

Simon Danczuk asks a pertinent question:

“How come Ken can have two disciplinary hearings & I can’t even have one? I think it’s favouritism cause he’s mates with Jeremy.”

Karen Danczuk Wants to Be Labour MP for Heywood & Middleton

Selfie Queen Karen Danczuk told the BBC last week:

“I’ve been thinking this past week… I would love to be an MP. I genuinely would and I just hope I can get the support out there to enable that, because I think my voice is important.”

Where could she stand? Guido hears Karen is looking at Manchester’s Heywood and Middleton, a Labour seat currently occupied by the uninspiring Liz McInnes, who is currently battling the Momentum hordes in her CLP. Karen said last year:

“I really want to fight Middleton & Heywood at the next General Election for MP!! It’s time they had a home girl putting the town first.” 

Which would throw up the prospect of Heywood and its neighbouring Rochdale constituency being held by a former husband and wife…

There are of course other seats without sitting Labour MPs, nearby Rossendale and Darwen is held by Jake Berry with an increased majority of over 5,000 votes against Will Straw. That would not be an easy fight….

Labour NEC Panel Fudges Danczuk Decision

Labour have farcically delayed making a final decision on the status of the still suspended Simon Danczuk. Guido understands Danczuk has been referred to the party’s Constitutional Committee after an NEC disciplinary panel failed to reach a judgement on his readmittance to the party. Absurdly Danczuk has now been waiting for a decision more than a year after those spanking sexts, while the likes of Keith Vaz retain the whip. Danczuk says he is now considering his future options:

“Prior to today’s decision I had been interviewed by party officials and subsequently believed the matter would be settled satisfactorily. I am disappointed that this committee have chosen to delay a final decision. This seems unfair given other cases which have been resolved far more smoothly. While I was, and remain, supportive of Keith Vaz MP, it does appear that I have been treated very differently. I will be talking to friends, family and colleagues about my future options. However, I currently remain Rochdale’s Member of Parliament and will continue to serve the town efficiently and effectively.”

So Labour have cleared the members who used anti-Semitic slurs yet kicked the Danczuk decision into the long grass again…

Karen Danczuk’s Rapist Brother Jailed for 15 Years

Rapist Michael Burke, 38, was jailed for 15 years for horrific sex attacks on Karen and two other women. He was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court this morning.

Labour Whips Intervene in Danczuk Impasse

Simon Danczuk remains suspended from the Labour Party for his spanking sexts. Christmas will mark a year since he had the whip withdrawn. He has been subject to a painstakingly slow internal ‘investigation’ into his conduct which is yet to report. Guido understands Danczuk’s office is requesting a meeting with Jeremy Corbyn in order to ‘clear the air’ – an idea suggested by opposition chief whip Nick Brown, who intervened to confirm Danczuk’s status in case of a snap election. Danczuk has now been waiting three weeks for a meeting date but has been stonewalled by the leader’s office. Another Labour MP tells Guido the delay shows the party is “unconcerned” about holding onto Danczuk’s seat. Team Corbyn are happy to reinstate anti-Semites to Labour but are bottling making a decision on one of his critics…

Danczuk’s Fundraising Flop

DANCZUK RUNNING 2

Simon Danczuk has raised just £20 out of his £500 goal for a local charity since beginning his funding drive in May. The Rochdale MP’s summer could hardly get worse, since first tweeting that he would be fundraising for the Growth Project in May he has attracted just one donor. Danczuk has just 31 days left until the Rochdale half marathon, it is for charidee…

Fancy a Job in Danczuk’s Office?

SIMON DANCZUK

Simon Danczuk is advertising for a new parliamentary assistant. “Sex mad” spanking fan Danczuk, recently revealed to have engaged in a steamy unprotected romp with a 22 year-old on the desk in his constituency office – she said “I felt quite privileged to be in there with such a well-known MP. It was quite a turn-on.” Now Simon is looking for a “disciplined individual” to “provide extensive research support”. So expect late nights in the office…

Suspended from the party Danczuk has still used Labour branding to advertise the role, and says applicants must be “Sympathetic to values and aims of the Labour Party.” Also advantageous is an “understanding of Simon Danczuk MP’s work in his constituency.” It’s mostly desk work…

Danczuk Told to Pay Back £11,500

The report by IPSA’s compliance officer into Simon Danczuk’s expenses finds:

The evidence points overwhelmingly to the conclusion that the MP obtained an increase to his Accommodation Expenditure budget by claiming dependant uplifts for his two oldest children for a period of over three years, when, at no point were either of the children routinely resident. The Compliance Officer must also conclude that this was done knowing that there was no reasonable prospect of the children staying at the accommodation. The total claimed by the MP in breach of the Scheme and which he is required to repay is £11,583.20.

Simon says:

“I hold my hands up and admit that this was an error on my part.”

IPSA Launch Danczuk Probe

The expenses watchdog IPSA say in a statement:

“The Compliance Officer for the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has opened an investigation to determine whether Mr Simon Danczuk MP has been paid an amount under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’) that should not have been allowed. An investigation will be conducted into claims submitted under the following areas of the Scheme: Accommodation.

In accordance with the legislation and the procedures for investigation made thereunder, no further information will be published until the investigation has been concluded.”

Usually IPSA try to cover up the specific allegations against MPs. Though there are so many people out to get Danczuk – in his own party and in the local LibDems – that the accusations have already been aired very publicly

Corbynista Complaint to Iain McNicol Revealed

Corbyn supporters are being encouraged to lodge official complaints about Labour moderates to party general secretary Iain McNicol. This is the template doing the rounds in Corbynista circles of a letter that has already been filed to Labour HQ, dobbing in Simon Danczuk, Frank Field and Emily Benn:

Hello Iain,

I urge you as General Secretary of the Labour Party to instigate disciplinary action against the following members:-

Emily Benn, for urging people to join another political party, namely the Women’s Equality Party – a clear act of support for that party and in contravention of the rules Chapter 2, clause 1 4 B;

Frank Field MP, for urging Labour MPs not re-selected in a process provided for under the Labour Party rules, to resign as MPs to force a by-election and stand as independent candidates against Labour candidates, which is clearly indicates a refusal to accept and conform to the constitution of the Labour Party in contravention of the rules Chapter 2, clause 1 6 A;

Simon Danczuk MP, for sustained attacks against the Leader of the Labour Party notably in his column in the Daily Mail, conduct which is clearly prejudicial to the party and consisting of acts which are grossly detrimental to the party in contravention of the rules Chapter 2 clause 1 8.
