The usual bull from Dick

I live and own my own house I am not rich but comfortable, I do not have to worry about paying my household bills, I can have holidays when I want, go out and eat what I want so I suppose I should be a Tory or even UKIP. but I am not. I have no desire to live in a Tory or Ukip Britain that does not care about the vast majority of its population and is only concerned for the very wealthy in society and doesn't give a cuss about the sick, unfortunate, infirm or people just down on their luck. THERE is a Party that stands for ordinary people and that is the LABOUR party who I shall be proud to VOTE for on the 7th MAY. I and have not and will never forget my roots and would urge every one who does not want to live in a TORY / UKIP run country please for gods sake VOTE LABOUR.

So let me get this straight. The idea of the Labour Party is simply a vote for the majority, the majority being the working class folk, people struggling to live to the law and survive.
It is no surprise that another Labour Cllr is “comfortable”, and is not “struggling with bills”, and is fortunate to afford “holidays”.
Obviously this expenditure is from legitimate resources other than the council income.

It wasn’t the Tory Party that did not allow the UK to vote to open Europe’s doors. It will not be the Tory or Labour Government that close it.

From the actions of the Featherstone Labour Party over many and recent years it is quite clear their party belief is greater than the needs of the people voting them in. £30.000 turned down so far for Featherstone in government funding because it was not labour party money. Up to £ million available with £700,000 taken so far for Featherstone and £0 applied for by Featherstone Labour because the chief Muppet says so.

The best thing for Featherstone would be the Independent Cllr standing but UKIP will split the vote so labour will get in again.

Not many actually see the real picture. Just don’t complain when you get ripped off again. ::)

Looks like the Featherstone Labour Party are concerned and it’s back to the dirty tricks campaign. It should be an interesting couple of weeks. ;D

So the Labour spiel is UKIP are Conservative! No thanks. If it was would it not be called just that? The way the Featherstone Labour Party has conducted itself recently portrays communism. If a political party was ever in disguise and not what it said it stood for then the local labour party could be better described as red communists. ::)

Absolutely no coincidence that the about the same number of UKIP lamp post posters were fitted over the weekend and only the Labour Party ones have not been taken down. :o ::)

Best of all if you needed to split the local vote what is the dirty way to do it? One clue is 4 candidates for Featherstone! :o

less than a day away. ;D
I think the result can be forecast but it has been refreshing to hear people asking questions about the Featherstone missing "Millions". :)
