Dear Comrade - A Day in Politics

Misquoting Oscar Wilde: 'To lose one Councillor for Northwood, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both within six months looks like carelessness.'

Reports coming in of political skulduggery in Thanet's Labour Group today, with one of the comrades apparently having torn-up his party card and resigned to start his own 'Hard  Labour' party.

In the absence of further news of this driver-less train, I will leave readers imaginations to enjoy a classic Monty Python interlude. This may offer a comic parody on events so far and the intemperate language (warning) reported by the local paper today.

Looks like I have finally found someone who isn't a Monty Python fan then!

Bit too intellectual I guess for Labour supporters, Simon?

What a pity you have to mimic the insulting behaviour of the blog host, Tom Clarke. They may not share what I guess is your political bias, but Labour supporters are not thick. All parties have a wide ability spread. As for the post itself, if Councillor Moores was open about Tory Infighting, then he may have the right to comment on troubles in other camps. As it is, he is, as usual, just going in for cheap political point scoring

Anonymous 2:10pm - If you don't like it, you have the option of not coming on to a politically biased CONSERVATIVE Councillors' Blogsite !
And YES, Labour supporters are thick - how else would you explain re-electing Tony Bliar - sorry Blair ?

anon again!
If Labour supporters are thick, then so are Conservative supporters. Remember the Thatcher mess... 5 million unemployed...Pole Tax invention...Closed mines...End of ship building industry...

I honestly can't think how the Cons got voted in again!
Must be THEIR thick supporters.
At least Labour didn't have to 'share' government. How embarrasing for them.

To be perfectly honest, I am not aware of any Tory infighting which in any way mimics Labour's troubles!

This entry has taken a somewhat bizarre direction with insults being thrown around.

Thatcher, admire her or hate her was the medicine for a failing society and if you don't believe me, then watch Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain. You need to recall what existed before she arrived, the union unrest verging on anarchy that threatened our economy; Soviet Weekly being delivered to our school staffrooms and more.

I was thinking, Councillor, of the deselection of another Councillor to make way for you in Westgate a few years ago, the goings on around your one time Constitiuency Chair, Cohen, Latchford saying he would resign and then not doing so when he was finally "cleared" of racism, the "rebellion"against Ezekiel, and so on. Not all infighting, but all Tory embarrassments and issues about which you refused to comment. That's why I think you are just going in for cheap point-scoring.

As for your risible defence of Thatcher, and your supporters' further anti-Labour snipes, I'll just chuckle at the obvious "humour"

Simply because 2:50, most of it, 'racism' included, existed only in your lurid imagination, despite your best efforts across all the blogs at the time, to whip the matter up into something it wasn't.

You will really have to accept that you've lost the argument and lost very badly too. For years now you've 'trolled' all the most popular local weblogs attempting to smear anyone and anything vaguely Conservative, with a big 'C'. Today and it's 2011, the more intelligent readers recognise you for what you are, we have a very different Cabinet and politics at least on the big 'C' side of the political divide looks and is rather different too.

I'm sure we will see you again but the fact of the matter is your opinions are really quite worthless in the eyes of those who recognise your different aliases and hold little currency, intellectually, politically or otherwise.

Labour, locally and nationally are a busted flush of a party that condemned a generation to poverty worse than anything that Thatcher could have delivered and that in the end voted for the lesser of two brothers as their leader.

That's telling him how it is !! Well done. You know, for someone who claims to know an awful lot about the local Conservatives, he's got an awful lot wrong there ! I don't suppose facts count do they.
