Happy Anniversary Gordon

Labour finish behind BNP in election humiliation

Labour came a humiliating fifth place behind the BNP and the Greens last night in the Henley by-election caused by Boris Johnson’s election as London Mayor. Gordon Brown’s first anniversary as Labour leader began with the party securing only 1,066 votes, losing its £500 deposit, and having its working majority in the House of Commons cut to 65, as John Howell, the Conservative candidate, succeeded Mr Johnson in the Oxfordshire seat

  • Will the cheque for the £500 lost deposit bounce ?

  • 1066 people still voted for the labour candidate. I thought the cetified insane were banned from voting!

  • @ hpwatcher – your Jeff Randall link sums up Brown’s problems very well.

    I specially like:
    “Gordon Brown who swept to power alongside Tony Blair in May 1997: a careerist with the charisma of an extinct species, whose idea of dialogue is to tell us what we think.”

  • Even in their worst moments, I don’t recall the Tories ever coming fifth in a bye election, indeed I’m not sure they if ever came fourth.

    Happy anniversary Mr Brown!

  • This should come as no surprise. The economic sham of the last eleven years has now been exposed and all that is left is what you had before – the crackpot loony left nutcases calling the shots and taking the Labour into oblivion.

    Maybe Harriet Harman’s illegal and repulsive ‘positive’ discrimination law is a personal hedge for when she has to go for interviews!

  • Tyrell – as I understand it, the proposed law will mean that an employer will be able to choose the white male if he wants to and the women and coloured applicants will no longer be able to lodge a discrimination claim. After all, if they can choose a woman from two equal applicants because they want a woman in their company – they can use the same law to positively choose a man.

    An unseen consequence?

    Couldn’t have said it better, although I prefer, “socialist nut jobs”.

    “The problem for Brown and his troupe of political pygmies is that they have exhausted the supply of veils behind which they once danced. They now stand stark naked before the electorate and it’s not a pretty sight.”

    Ow ow ow, that has got to hurt.

  • Cornishman, that is not how HH described it on radio 4 yesterday morning. She said only the ethnic minorities(does this include scots in England?) and women could be chosen if they were deemed equal in skill(is there such a thing?). She has shown why F4J were on her roof the other week(and probably why there was a virtual news balackout). Dangerous people, with dangerous minds. AOL had 176 comments on this story when I looked yesterday, the reoccuring themes were to riot, vote BNP, leave the country or make sure they all vote Tory despite being longheld labour voters, oh and about 5 agreed.

    The voting date probably coincides with the Battle of Hastings on Calleman’s model.

    As I see it the law seems to state that if you are approached by two candidates of equal ability you are now obliged by law to ditch the white guy. Some may call this ‘positive discrimination’ but discrimination IMO is never positive.

    They tried this lunacy in California a few years ago and it has since been dumped because racial tensions sky-rocketed.

    More Ill-conceived and unnecessary legislation from NL.

  • This crowing about New Labour problems is likely to be short-lived: the Conservative government in waiting is dedicated to high house prices and invented the strategy of staying in power by taking the tax off owner -occupiers (who used to pay income tax on the rental value of their homes under Schedule A). If they were deprived of their fall-back position of pandering to owner-occupiers, all the political parties would be in the Wily Coyote position of not realising there is nothing between them and the policy void.

    Gordon ‘I’m doing the job’ Brown. Well done because your doing a great job of destroying the labour party.

    PS> Is there anyway he can blame the Tories for this?

    It’ll be good therapy voting antiLiebour (prolly Tory) in the next election. It’ll give a great feel-good factor. But after a couple of days the dust will settle, and then back to the realisation that the UK is basically badly managed whoever’s in power.
    Trouble is, I don’t know what to suggest, except maybe the system has to change.

  • Meanwhile, Alistair Darling will borrow at least £40 billion this year, probably £50 billion, far more than Britain spends on defence, to plug a hole in a set of numbers that looks like back-of-a-fag-packet accountancy.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
