Gordon Is A Moron

Gordon Brown is officially an idiot. The Prime Minister didn't have the bottle to tell a 66 year old widow that he disagreed with her for questioning the levels of immigration into the UK, a concern for many millions of people in the country. Instead he schmoozed her then called her a bigot in the safety of his car, forgetting that he still had a mic on. What a statesman!

So this one's for you Gordon:

Putting UKIP In Perspective

UKIP just don't understand politics. They constantly whine about not getting a fair crack of the whip, then go out of their way to alienate the media and the public.

The disastrous Lord Pearson thinks that as leader, he should be on Thursday night's leadership debate with the old three party leaders. He really is certifiable and should be kept well clear of the public, let alone the media.

Last June Paul Nuttall, when elected MEP in the North West, flounced off the platform rather than share it with Nick Griffin of the BNP, who had also been democratically elected to the European Parliament.

Next Fred McGlade throws a tantrum and refuses to join a hustings meeting in Lancaster on behalf of UKIP because the BNP have not been invited.

Tonight, here in Birmingham, I have started watching the BBC regional election debate. Guess what? UKIP are boycotting because they are not being given 'equality' with the old three party representatives. They don't want to sit with the other parties who have no MPs so haven't bothered.

Last night we had a hustings meeting in Meriden constituency with over 200 attending. Where was the UKIP candidate? Nowhere to be seen, maybe washing his masturbation t-shirt, I don't know.

Maybe they are already preparing excuses for bombing yet again in UK elections. But when they blame the media look at their media stupidity.

UKIP Must Be Joking

I just had to check what I heard on the radio is correct, UKIP are threatening legal action if their leader, Lord Pearson, isn't included in Thursday night's leaders debate.

Surely judging by his recent performances they would be well advised to only take legal action to ensure he doesn't appear in the leaders debate.

Nikki Sinclaire in Meriden.

It's been a long hard day slogging the streets of Meriden, but really worthwhile. The response to Nikki has been fantastic.

Last night we were at a hustings in Knowle, in the southern part of the constituency, where there must have been over 200 people present. The BNP candidate was thick, the Green candidate very pleasant, but 'dippy' might be the best word to describe her, and the Lib Dem was decidedly lacklustre. Nikki did very well and was well received on all issues.

Today has been in the northern half of the constituency slogging around estates and in and out of blocks of flats. But again the response has been fantastic, so much so that Nikki is quoted on Ladbrokes at 50-1 with Labour on 20-1. Sadly the Tories are still way ahead as odds on favourites. The BNP and UKIP are stuck on 100-1 alongside the Greens.

Despite all this foot slogging I suspect there will be little weight loss with full English breakfasts every morning and a chicken Madras every night.

Libertarian Party Endorses Nikki Sinclaire in Meriden

I am pleased to say that the Libertarian Party has endorsed Nikki's campaign here in Meriden. Over a pleasant lunch Nikki and I met the LPUK's Deputy Leader and had a very interesting meeting.

As a libertarian Nikki found it impossible to remain a part of UKIP's grouping in the EU parliament, which largely consists of right-wing authoritarians and assorted oddballs. In standing up and being counted, not wishing to be associated with homophobes, Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites, Nikki had the UKIP whip withdrawn. She has since been undemocratically run out of UKIP and is standing in Meriden as an independent under the banner of the Solihull and Meriden Residents Association.

Vote Nikki

Libertarian Party

Happy St George's Day

UKIP Lose the Plot

Standing a clown (Barry Allcock above) against Nikki Sinclaire in Meriden has seriously backfired on UKIP. The reaction here in the constituency is universally "are they mad?". But when it comes to scoring own goals UKIP are the creme de la creme. Let's face it, they elected the clown Lord Pearson as leader a few months ago!

Here is how UKIP boosted our campaign in Meriden by getting us this excellent coverage in the Birmingham Post:

Eurosceptic party UKIP has continued a bitter war against one of its own MEPs by standing a rival candidate against her in the general election.

Nikki Sinclaire, who was elected as a UKIP member of the European Parliament last year, is standing in Meriden as the candidate of the Solihull and Meriden Residents Association.

But her opponents will include Barry Allcock, who is standing as the official UKIP candidate.

Ms Sinclaire said she was “astonished and disappointed” that UKIP was standing against her.

The row is the latest twist in a long-running disupte between Ms Sinclaire and the party she still belongs to.

UKIP was ecstatic when Ms Sinclaire was elected as their second West Midlands MEP last June. It meant the party had beaten both Labour and the Liberal Democrats, which each returned only one MEP in the region.

But the celebrations were short-lived, after she publicly condemned UKIP’s decision to join a group in the European Parliament called the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group, which includes right-wing parties from across the EU.

She claimed that some of the parties involved, from other European countries, supported anti-Semitism and violence.

As a result, UKIP withdrew the party whip, which means Ms Sinclaire is now officially an independent MEP. However, she continues to be a member of the party.

UKIP’s national executive also sacked her as the party’s general election candidate in Meriden. But she stood anyway, as a candidate of new party Solihull & Meriden Residents’ Association, which cites its ethos as “restoring political power to local people.”

Ms Sinclaire said UKIP had broken its own rules by standing against her.

She said: “My views on Britain’s membership of the EU is widely known, this is another breach of trust and discredits the stated policy of not standing against known eurosceptics.”

A UKIP spokesman said: “We have candidates standing in all constituencies in the region except Aldridge-Brownhills, where there was already a eurosceptic candidate, and Nuneaton, where our candidate had to pull out.”

Here is the original article.

Nikki Sinclaire Campaign Update-Barry Allcock Stands for UKIP

Nikki's campaign is going extremely well, so much so that UKIP have decided to put up a candidate against us. Of course this is an incredibly spiteful move as UKIP are standing down candidates against Tory and Labour Eurosceptics and Stuart Wheeler's Trust Party.

Are we bothered? Not now we've seen the following photograph of Mr Allcock. We only hope it isn't going on his election address!

Which UKIP Candidate?

In the Morecambe and Lunesdale constituency we received our UKIP election address urging us to vote for Nigel Brown. But when the candidates were declared on the Lancaster City Council website the declared UKIP candidate is Mark Andrew Knight. Both appear as the candidate on different parts of the UKIP website.

Who knows, maybe Nigel got cold feet when he saw this now notorious video of Party Leader Lord Pearson on The Campaign Show. Jon Sopel's expression is priceless!

Then again maybe Nigel stood down when the Lib Dems announced their promise of an in/out referendum on membership of the EU. Surely according to UKIP's policy of not standing against Labour or more importantly, Tory Eurosceptics, they should now stand down against Lib Dem candidates? After all, the Lib Dems in a hung parliament are more likely to deliver UKIP's desired referendum than half a dozen misfits in the other parties, even if the Lib Dems aren't Eurosceptic.

Country before party, surely?

General Election-Campaigning with Nikki Sinclaire in Meriden

Blogging will be light for the next couple of weeks as I will be working hard with a great team on Nikki Sinclaire's campaign in Meriden. To give you a flavour here am I (the porky one) campaigning with Nikki, Josh and others in Solihull Town Centre on Saturday.

And Gary has discovered the best curry house in England to sustain us after a hard day's campaigning.

General Election

Here was me thinking I would be having a nice quiet general election when the phone rings. As a consequence I am now sat in an office in Birmingham working as agent for general election candidate Nikki Sinclaire who is an independent MEP standing in the Meriden constituency on the SAMRA ticket.

Shame she's not standing in Morecambe and Lunesdale, I might have been able to vote for somebody then. As it is it looks like I won't be able to bring myself to support any of the misfits I am currently aware of, Tory, Labour, Lib-Dims, Greens and UKIP in my constituency, so will be spoiling my ballot paper.

Happy days

Hazel Blears-The Bitch is Back

Driving down to the Midlands this morning I thought I'd gone back in time, it was scary. Listening to the BBC the interviewer asked a question and I thought I heard Hazel Blears (left) respond. Surely not? But yes it was, gassing off as if she was a real person instead of the gobby, lying little freak she is.

Since she was exposed as a main player in the expenses scandal she has, sensibly, kept a low profile. But the bitch is back. This morning she was claiming that people on the doorsteps aren't bothered about the expenses scandal. I can just imagine a big hard Salford lad politely chatting to her then closing the door, when asked by his wife who it was he'll reply: "That cheeky little, thieving carrot topped bitch Blears. She thinks we'll actually vote for her the deluded bitch. She's gone off all smiling the cow!"

She further claimed that politicians have always been regarded as scum. Nobody has ever been regarded as lowly as this current batch you thick cow, and you're the lowest of the low.

If you're disillusioned with the three old parties then watch tonight's leaders' debate. And you'll really despair.

Broken Britain?

A young slapper called Ellie Gellard has been in the news this week, goes to show what a useless bunch of prats our politicians are if that pathetic little attention seeker gets national publicity. But for some bizarre reason Gordon Brown had her sat next to him at their manifesto launch, despite her calling for him to resign not too long ago. Maybe he was right not to listen to a 20 year old idiot who thinks Britain isn't 'broken'. But why have her sat up there on the podium? Because Gordon the Moron is desperate and wants to show how they all love him really, and he has united them.

In fact that summarises nicely British politics at the moment. What can you say when a nothing like Vince Cable is about to be sainted as some kind of financial and economic messiah? Maybe even Chancellor of the Exchequer if we have a hung parliament after May 6th? That really would be time to shift all your savings and other assets safely away to Zimbabwe for example!

Yesterday I was off the campaign trail on family business in East Manchester. In the area now called Eastlands, much to the annoyance of locals born and raised in Miles Platting and Bradford, the council estates built in the 1960s are being demolished. Those who bought under Right to Buy are now having their homes compulsorily purchased way below market value. Many of the deck access flats built in Hulme, Ardwick and Beswick in the 1960s have already long since been demolished. Communities were wrecked to make way for those developments, and now they are being split asunder yet again. And Labour talk of 'community'. They are the wreckers of communities.

A huge model comprehensive was built in Gorton in the 1960s. Now demolished and rebuilt. A Catholic secondary school was built in Gorton in the 1970s. Now demolished and rebuilt. A school for people with 'learning disabilities' was built in Gorton in the late 1970s/early 1980s. Now demolished but not rebuilt. A school built in the 1920s in Gorton, and extended only a few years ago, is about to be demolished and has been rebuilt a few hundred yards away. Another school built in Gorton in the 1970s has been demolished and not rebuilt.

One day we will find out financial the cost of all that nonsense. The social cost of our appalling governments, and I'm going back to before 1997, we can see all around us. The country is in such a mess that I find it increasingly difficult to regard myself as patriotic. It is not just the politicians to blame, the vast majority of the population have sat on their fat lazy arses, waddling away from Coronation Street only to pay homage at the new cathedrals to consumerism and greed such as the Trafford Centre, the Metro Centre or Meadowhall. Then back home to slump in front of their TVs with a bargain bucket of KFC to watch and learn from the Jeremy Kyle Show or Tricia Goddard. Meanwhile the country goes down the pan.

Yesterday I read about an 'ex-soldier' who got £100,000 compensation from the British Army because she couldn't get childcare, being a single mother, so went AWOL.

Then I read how to 'earn' £42,000 a year as a parasite sponging off the taxpayer. No, not by becoming an MP or an MEP, they get even more, this is the story of a family on Anglesey. The father realised he would be better off packing in work and sponging off us. So that's what he has been doing for years. They are now whining about needing a bigger house, paid for by the taxpayer, because the misfits are producing another little parasite to bleed off us.

Don't tell me that the Tories would do any better, they never have, although Margaret Thatcher did a great deal of what was needed, but not quite enough, from 1979 to 1990. Yes, you socialist misfits, she did leave Downing Street 20 years ago so stop obsessing about her. Bloody hell, in 1965 the country had long stopped blaming the Germans for everything and look at the mess they really did create 20 to 30 years earlier!

The Lib-Dems? Don't make me laugh, that shower are so firmly sat on the fence their arses are full of splinters.

UKIP? Do me a favour. Build more prisons is about all they can offer, apart from getting out of Europe. Tell you what, stop slamming people in clink for ridiculous offences and you might be surprised how many prison places you freed up. And don't tell us you are going to slash taxes and massively increase spending. We're not all stupid.

BNP? Let's be serious.

So that leaves the only socialist party fighting the election, the Green Party. I'd have more respect for them if they were honest about their extreme left-wing socialism, instead they disguise it behind claiming we are all about to drown under a melting ice cap if Caroline Lucas doesn't get elected in Brighton. Up against that wall you lot....

What a mess. And I haven't even started on Elizabeth Saxe-Cobourg-Gotha and her bunch of misfits. How apt that we have the matriarch of the most dysfunctional family in the world on the throne. Actually Ellie Gellard does have a look of Phil the Greek about her.

Labour MPs Get Legal Aid (Chaytor, Morley and Devine)

Labour MPs David Chaytor, Elliot Morley and Jim Devine (left) are granted legal aid to defend expenses theft charges.

I was convinced that Labour had shafted the country anyway, now I'm absolutely bloody certain. But what really angers me is the number of thick, idiotic, lunatic, educationally subnormal morons in the UK who will still vote Labour on May 6th.

Frankie Boyle

The wonderful Frankie Boyle is under attack again by the angry brigade of Britain's new puritans.

If you don't know, Frankie Boyle's humour is extremely near the mark, often teetering on the brink of outright offensiveness. But he is hilarious. Now I've never yet bought tickets to a show I think I may not enjoy and anybody buying tickets to a Frankie Boyle show, then getting all offended and pious, should really keep quiet and slink away, you cocked it up, not him.

So, this week a woman with a Down's Syndrome child has hit the headlines for heckling him when his routine included jokes at the expense of people with Down's Syndrome. Most humour is at the expense of somebody else, especially Frankie Boyle's. I can't help wondering if this woman, who has hit the headlines, laughed at all his jokes at the expense of others. In which case she is as guilty as she claims he is. No, actually she's far worse, she's a hypocrite.

If any other sensitive souls with tickets for any of his shows would now prefer not to go, then I will happily buy your tickets as we couldn't get any, it's a sell out tour.

Just in case you don't get the point below is a clip of Frankie Boyle live-it contains a swear word or two!!

Nikki Sinclaire MEP-PPC for Meriden

While UKIP continue to self-destruct amid exposes of sordid film making by its Liverpool Branch chairman, one of its MEPs (Stewart Agnew) informing an undercover reporter that he and another MEP (David Campbell Bannerman) were making illegal payments to their Regional Organiser (Pete Reeve), the only MEP elected last year with any principle, Nikki Sinclaire, was unconstitutionally thrown out of the Party for sticking by her principles and leaving UKIP's far-right EFD Group in the EU Parliament.

However, Nikki has been making a huge impact in the West Midlands as an Independent MEP and has now become the first MEP to publish her fully audited accounts. At a public meeting on Wednesday night in Knowle, in the Meriden constituency, she spoke passionately about her beliefs and to enthusiastic applause announced her intention to fight the Meriden constituency on May 6th.

Following is Nikki's press release announcing her candidacy:

At a public meeting arranged by the Solihull & Meriden Residents Association (SAMRA) in Knowle, on Wednesday April 7th, Nikki Sinclaire MEP declared that she would stand for the Association in the forthcoming General Election against Caroline Spellman, one of a number of MPs hit by expenses scandals, in the Meriden constituency.

Having been elected to the European Parliament in June 2009, Solihull resident Nikki announced the surprise move, pledging her commitment to SAMRA’s ethos of restoring political power to local people.

An outspoken opponent of transfer of power from Britain to Brussels, Nikki has campaigned against sleaze and corruption. “I am the first British MEP to receive a satisfactory audit of my accounts” she said, “and if I am elected to Westminster I will lose my seat in Brussels, and take a £20,000 pay cut. I am not in this for the money; I am in it because I believe in honest and open government.”

SAMRA is campaigning on a number of local issues, including more efficient local governance, protection of the West Midlands Green belt, and is opposed to the further threatened cuts to local hospitals.

Speaking about the proposed high-speed rail link, Trevor Eames of the Solihull Ratepayers Association said “There are important consultations coming up, and for us to have an MP representing our interests rather than those of political parties will put us in a fantastic position. It is about time that local people had their say.”

In a radical move, the Resident’s Association will be fielding candidates in both the general and local elections on May 6.

Nikki is being extremely well received in Meriden and I would keep an eye out for that result on election night, it could be a good one.

General Election-A Sham

It's been a phoney war for months and now it's here. But, assuming a few people bother to go out and vote on May 6th, will we get the government we vote for? I would say no.

In the last election Labour got 36.91% of the popular vote, Conservatives 33.86% and the Lib-Dems got 23.09%.

That resulted in Labour getting 356 seats (55.11%), Conservatives 198 seats (30.65%) and the Lib-Dems 62 seats (9.60%)

In this day and age that doesn't seem fair to me, and that's without looking at the smaller parties.

Gene Hunt or David Cameron?

Last week the Labour Party scored a spectacular own goal by trundling liar and war criminal Tony Blair out to campaign for them. Now they have scored another own goal by likening Dave Cameron to the ever popular Gene Hunt.

It seems that every day between now and May 6th our politicians will be out to prove how out of touch they are. If Cameron had half the charisma and bluntness of Gene Hunt the Tories would be way ahead in the polls. If Gene Hunt led either party I bet they would win.

Perhaps the Tories will retort with a poster asking if we want Labour to take us back to the 1970s, remember that decade? The decade of the first Gene Hunt series, Life on Mars? If you don't the 1970s were when Labour turned us into an economic basket case. The dead couldn't be buried because of strikes. We had the three day week, for the few workers that weren't on strike most of the decade. We had power cuts because we lacked the resources to light up the country after dark. Even the IMF told us to bugger off. We had the troubles in Ulster and rumours of a coup plot at one stage. Life on Mars was decidedly more appealing than life in the UK in the 1970s under Labour.

At least the 1980s, though tough, got us out of the shit Labour had got us in, a recovery so effective that Brown inherited a great financial legacy, which he promptly squandered. Sound familiar? The difference is the Tory Party today is no different to Labour and Cameron, just like Brown is a big, useless poofter, as Gene Hunt would say.

Phil Cool, Ken Nicol and East Cheshire Hospice

What a great night last night at the home of Lancashire County Cricket Club. Dinners there are always enjoyable, great food, wine and catching up with family and old friends.

Last night was Phil Cool and Ken Nicol performing at a fundraiser for the East Cheshire Hospice.

Ken Nicol's guitar playing was amazing, they both sang some great songs, solo and togeher, were both funny and Phil Cool is still absolutely hilarious. And pots of money raised for a very good cause hopefully.

Lancashire must have produced more top notch comedians than anywhere else in the world.

Scientists and a Good English Breakfast

One thing that really pees me off is scientists making announcements, about things we all knew anyway, as if they're announcing they've just split the atom or found a cure for the common cold. They're at it again, and I'll bet they are extremely well paid for this 'research'.

My mum always used to say that the way to eat healthily was to "breakfast like a king, lunch like a lord and supper like a pauper". A bit like needing a full tank in your car starting out on a long journey then as you approach your destination (or bedtime), you obviously need less fuel. Commonsense. But scientists in Alabama are making news all over the world announcing the bleeding obvious, yet again. Remember scientists? The ones who gave us nuclear bombs, God knows how many viruses from their cocked up experiments, thalidomide, warned us that by 1990 every family would have lost somebody to Aids, that by now the British population would be 29 and falling because of Swine Flu? Well, they've now decided a good breakfast is indeed good for you.

So all those who scamper through town centres in the morning pretending to be so busy they you only manage coffee in a paper cup for breakfast, wise up! You aren't that busy that you can't pop into the greasy spoon for a full English. It's probably only a quid more than a poncey coffee in Starbucks, and you'll be served just as quickly in my experience.

I thnk every penny these 'researchers' have made should go to my mum, they're frauds.
