The BNP have failed to field a single candidate this year and even dear old Marlene is nowhere to be seen. The Green light is on for UKIP. However…….what i’d like to observe is the Respect party. A party who has lost five great Cllrs, Kate Hudson and the superb Salma Yaqoob. I suppose it’s basically the cult of personality…..a one man band…..George Galloway appreciation society? Who knows. This is not scrutiny on the two Rotherham Respect party candidates in Rotherham but more of a posing question. Why would you two lovely young ladies want to stand for a party that has been in turmoil, walkouts by great socialists and feminists? Honestly, with greatest respect i am intrigued.
But that aside, the respect party in general is renowned for dirty tricks campaigns wherever they go, they had it in Tower Hamlets, Bradford and even here in Rotherham. That must be more than a coincidence?
Whilst being nowhere as bad as the BNP……The Respect Party uses similar divide and rule tactics which is not wanted by the majority. Here is a good article that explains this a lot better than I could:
The best news of the election has been that two communalist and thoroughly reactionary outfits, the BNP and ‘Respect’ and their leading members Nick Griffin and George Galloway, have been routed.
Griffin and the BNP were widely expected to challenge hard for victory in Barking against Labour’s Margaret Hodge. In the event, the BNP ‘s chubby Fuhrer was beaten into third place. Hodge won with 24,628 votes, distantly followed by the Tory’s Simon Marcus with 8,073. Griffin limped in third with just 6,620. Hodge (not usually a particularly inspiring speaker) caught the mood perfectly when she said: “The message from Barking to the BNP is clear – get out and stay out. You’re not wanted here, and your vile politics have no place in British democracy. Tomorrow you’re going to lose councillors and tomorrow we’re giving you a clear message – pack your bags and go.”
