Title: 2010 general election labour party campaign
Post by: yetion1 on February 06, 2009, 08:47:53 pm
It may be over a year away but the labour party campaign has begun this week. If you get fed up at election time of the one sided bull you had better look away now.
The campaign begins surprisingly with Tricket our M.P. If you did not know Tricket is a bit to the left of the labour party. That little bit off has been causing Mr Brown some problems with votes. The problem was solved with Mr Brown giving Tricket a nice fat juicy seat by his side that has resulted in the left wingers suddenly shutting their gobs.
That’s not the best bit. Tricket has been given an open cheque for the labour campaign. You can tell because the labour party have got all giddy at the prospect of every road side sign having a labour poster. The labour campaign will cost millions that they can get away with spending now as it is not officially election time. The maths adds up to say the sinking ship is spending every penny it has taken from us with it.

Richard Taylor is the latest Labour Party candidate for the 2010 election.
Apparently you can ask Richard Taylor anything and get a reply;

He says that if you have any genuine issues that you feel he can possibly help with he can be contacted at : electrichard@hotmail.com
 He assures he will reply.

Its going to be a great 14 months ;) ;D

The term “scraping the barrel” gained a whole new meaning this week. 2008 saw me top of the labour party get rid of list, I am still here.
It would appear the open cheque book has boosted moral within the extreme labour party. You may not be aware but the rot of local politics has been blasted by the introduction of Independent council people. This is not just in Featherstone. South Elmsall has a number of Independent council members. One in particular is an ex-police man, 6ft 6” and a kick boxer who has recently taken a number of youths to America kick boxing and won. He is a true asset to the community who do know it. That must have been the final straw as he also has reached the top of the get rid of list for his area. This has resulted in his house window being broken, his car window broken and threats down the phone. If you saw this guy you WOULD only threaten him down the phone.
I wonder when the heavies are coming to Featherstone? I hope their sticks are bigger than my pen. Either way it’s a sad state of affairs. :o

The people who were first filmed on a Calendar documentary do deserve respect for starting Featherstone Lions. I could be wrong but I think **** was in Spain at the time for various reasons.
The “Lions” are a true asset to Featherstone with huge numbers of great kids turned over each year into better individuals with team spirit.
You may be surprised that I comment the Lions are such a fantastic venture. You should make time when a game is on in the bitter cold just to see the spirit and determination shown. Not slaging off Featherstone Rovers but the younger age group has a passion that draws on you with the entertaining games.
This spirit and passion reflects on the coaches and training staff. When a rugby team is hot the coaches are smug complete with grins, great. When the referee is from Cassssssssss and the punches and high tackles are missed the team leaders provide the calm in between the funny cursing rants.
I mention all this on behalf of the many volunteers within Featherstone Lions who are the ones responsible for keeping this good ship a float such as the majority of the committee, the coaches, the coach assistants, the grounds men, the bar staff, the kitchen staff and the cleaners. Without them there would be no Lions.
There had to be a butt! I can only state what is factual. It is unfortunate that the Lions are now discussed under a political heading. So many times I have considered putting a topic on this site giving the dates and scores of games and the best action you are missing. With respect to the youth my input is noted as being desired like a hole in the head by a minority of adults.
 It would appear it is time to bring certain things to light that people were not aware of. The situations at the Lions may hope fully be helped with the incoming verbal I expect from this ironic topic. Many people at the lions who wish to improve are scared to do so.
My own experience is;

      1.  How do you loose the accounts twice?
2.   At the side of the Lions is a piece of land that can be developed for sports. I created a plan in 2004 for this land and tried to talk to the Lions. The junior committee was more than happy to meet and talk for mutual benefit. I didn’t get to the senior committee as the date I was given was not the date the meeting was held. Not in any way all the senior committees fault.
3.   Before a second meeting could be arranged **** took it upon himself to blockade the land under his own ruling and with out committee approval. This resulted in a very serious letter being sent to **** c/o Featherstone Lions from WMDC that demanded that he put right the industrial fly tipping amongst other issues that would be at the cost of the Lions. All I saw was more sport for Featherstone and more income for the Lions.
4.   At the beginning of 2008 meetings were held by a new group invented by WMDC sports and recreation department called the Featherstone Sports Consortium. I found this strange from the start as I was all ready a member of a group called exactly the same formed in 2006 who had been working with WMDC to achieve the same goal. The meetings consisted of representatives from all the sports groups in ward 6 Featherstone. The first meeting was ok with a goal being given of “work together”! The second meeting got spicy. At the time I was working on a project in Ackton with the developers of the new industrial estate. They had 1000s of tones of high grade top soil to remove and offered it to me to advertise to the community for free. As I had seen the lions home pitch flooded so often and the volume of work carried out to cure the problem of a rugby pitch built on a pond site I offered to Clive and **** a suggestion of them raising the ground and installing drainage to produce a non flooding pitch. My offer was genuine and would not have involved me other than giving the pair a phone number. It never got that far. Cllr Clive Tennant deputy portfolio holder at WMDC for sport instantly replied that the grounds men at the Lions do a great job and that I am insulting them to suggest they are not doing a good job. Clive then stated that Featherstone Lions refuse to work with and talk to me. I replied that I had only offered a suggestion to try and help and take acceptation to his comments without consulting the senior committee for the good of his club.
5.   Like every club the Lions struggle for money and kits on a good day. I was recently asked if I knew of funds for one of the age groups kit. I all ready knew of an organization that not only would provide the team kit I asked for but the entire clubs. That easy. There is an issue I am not prepared to bring the Lions down about. What I will say is sort it out for the sake of the kids please.

This is also true of the other sports groups such as Featherstone Collier’s football teams. Unfortunately in Featherstone if its not rugby its second best in grants and help offered.

Just reading a copy of the Featherstone Rose.
It tells me i shouldn't vote independent, but not why i should support Labour.
it just seems to be 2 pages of negativity.
i thought Featherstone deserves more hope than this brings.

and there was me thinking that a 'campaign' leaflet was meant to tell my why i 'should' vote for someone, not dismiss the opposition.
can't wait to get my copy to read ;D

Was not expecting to have my Roy Bickerton leaflet hand delivered to me by Dick Taylor, but hey nothing these days is a surprise ::).
2.22pm today whilst stood outside the Corner Pocket Roy’s leaflet was thrown at my feet by a “Dick” driving by in his car. Nice one. The people present were highways and WMDC looking at highway issues. Did you forget your car has reg plates?....NEXT… OH I…..GROW UP! :-*

wow :o If that were me i would be to ashamed to stand :( Wish the voters knew all this before they made up thier minds.

As for the lamp post ties thats a kick in the face for the regeneration. I believe it cost £1000 to clear up and paint the Fev lamp and sign posts. The good side is the picture i have been sent of Rorry Bickerton (labour) up a ladder fitting the signs. At least WMDC have the evidence and an address to send a bill to so we can have them removed and not have to look at them all year. ;) ;D

Been passed the latest Labour party leaflet. Without going on all night just one point,
When anyone in Featherstone speaks against the Featherstone Labour Party one of the common replies is “who is this un-elected half-wit community leader/s”.
So what should we call Labour candidate Graham Isherwood? There is a football chant that’s less offensive “who are ya, who are ya”. ::) ;D
