Thought of the day

Does it wind you up when you read the statements in the paper from Labours latest recruits? the list is endless of what they are going to do,how they are going to achieve it,regeneration,crime,drug issues,job creation and our children.But when the doors open for the first time at full Council meetings they sit there and say bugger all,because they are whipped they follow their masters like sheep fearing  the possibility of being deselected.And the punters fall for it hook line and sinker.

No surprise

Britain’s biggest union was last night accused of using ‘corrupt’ Militant Tendency methods to create a ‘party within a party’ inside Labour – and to take over its MPs.

The allegation came amid a row over claims Unite broke party rules to try to get its nominee picked as Labour’s candidate in Falkirk, Scotland.

Labour leader Ed Miliband was forced to suspend the local party last week, days after The Mail on Sunday revealed how a Labour Party inquiry upheld claims of foul play by Unite.

The union was accused of recruiting ‘rent-a-mob’ supporters in Falkirk to rig the selection process.

And last night, Eric Joyce, who won the seat for Labour at the last Election, made new claims against the union.

He said it was copying the tactics used by the extreme Left-wing Militant Tendency – which tried to infiltrate Labour 30 years ago.

Are the Tories really that Green

Hypocrisy claim over Cameron bike

David Cameron cycles from his home to work

Mr Cameron says he cannot carry document boxes on his bike

Conservative leader David Cameron has been attacked over his green agenda because he cycles to work – but then has his car follow with his briefcase.

Conservative officials say they have never made a secret of the arrangement.

They say Mr Cameron likes cycling but just cannot carry all his boxes of documents to work. They also stress he has opted for a less gas-guzzling car.

Labour’s Stephen Hepburn told the Daily Mirror it was “hypocrisy” showed he was “conning people about the environment”.


The environment has been high on the Tory agenda ahead of next week’s local elections, with the party using the slogan “vote blue, go green”.

Mr Cameron has been much-photographed cycling to Parliament on his mountain bike and plans to install a wind turbine in his home.

He has also said people need to walk or cycle on shorter journeys if they are serious about tackling climate change. But the Daily Mirror newspaper has published photographs of the MP’s driver taking his shoes and briefcase in a car following him to work.

Steven Hounsham, from campaign group Transport 2000, said: “It’s unbelievable. If there’s a good reason for making a car journey to transport shoes, a case and a shirt, then I’d like to hear it.”

The realities of a Labour Council

I’ll tell you what happens with impossible promises. You start with far fetched resolutions. They are then pickled into a rigid dogma, a code, and you go through the years sticking to that, out-dated, misplaced, irrelevant to the real needs, and you end in the grotesque chaos of a Labour council—a Labour council—hiring taxis to scuttle round a city handing out redundancy notices to its own workers. I’m telling you – and you’ll listen – you can’t play politics with people’s jobs and with people’s services. The people will not abide posturing.
