So Labour really are going for it in Stalybridge South



I stole these images from the blog of Cllr John Taylor - but I am sure he will not mind because after all; the name of the game is to try and demoralise the Stalybridge South Tories.

I thought all this talk of masses of Labourites descending upon Stalybridge South was a decoy aimed at diverting attention away from another part of the borough, but evidently that is not the case and they really are going for it.

I have checked the exif data on the images and they were taken today, the bottom one at 12.02 and the top one at 11.58.

With the exception of crucial by-elections I think it is virtually unheard of that political parties go out canvassing on cold snowy days just before Christmas. This just reinforces my belief that Labour want to win more than does any other party on the Tameside political scene. While the Conservatives, UKIP, the BNP and Greens warm themselves by the fire - Labour are out there electioneering.

If the Conservatives wish to avert a disaster in Stalybridge South I strongly suggest they put themselves on a war footing and begin a massive fight back - and very soon or it will be too late!

LABOURS WAR MINISTER SAID said...

Speed is the essence of war. Take advantage of the enemy's unpreparedness; travel by unexpected routes and strike him where he has taken no precautions.

Tameside Citizen said...

I am not questioning your sincerity when you say this, but you must be only leafleting small sections of Stalybridge South because I have yet to speak to anyone who has had anything delivered from Labour in ages.

STALYBRIDGE SOUTH POSTCODE LOTTERY said...

TC why did you remove your post then ??????????

perhaps it might just be True... if I was you I would wait for the evidence... Labour are playing for keeps...

ASK BASIL THIS. DID HE ASK THE RESIDENTS BEFORE HE GATED OFF THE CUTTING SEALING COPLEY FROM MOTTRAM ONCE AND FOR ALL? IT OFFENDED THE PENSIONERS WHO NOW HAVE TO WALK TWICE AS FAR TO THE LOCAL SHOP GREAT BASIL WELL DONE...

YOU DRIVE THEY HAVE TO WALK .... POST CODE LOTTERY POST CODE LOTTERY

James Supports his local club said...

The Labour Club still has over a Thousand members who vote for James they live all over Tameside and they see him in the Club with the rest of the Councillors and team supporting it.... unlike the Tory Councilliors who if they just went for a couple of pints there instead of the hare and hounds it would not have had to buy an illegal box to survive.

Next DA Shocker for Tories said...

Stalybridge South is a big area why dont the next time they go out you can come and help post them that way you will see the time already know that they have another six leasflet ready for the next Labour carpet bombing and wait until the next DA the Tories are in for a shock... turn up and see for yourself it will be funny watching their faces...

Ky is a determined candidate having spoken with him over the months he does not intend to run a negative name calling campaign just a shaming campaign pointing out all the things the Tories have forgot.. wonder where he will strike next it getting good its like fight night they should do a celebrity death match lol

Dont be shy vote for ky said...

Yes it was freezing but the response from residents kept us very warm, we split into three teams then hit the areas we planned.
We can assure that ALL areas of Staly South will be visited over the next few weeks,we are working right up to Christmas eve then back at it in January.
We are not just canvassing we have several newsletters and a Christmas card to deliver next week.

Had an accident said...

Two well known Conservatives parked their car near the Labour club this morning to check out who would be turning up for the Labour campaign, we have been told they went into Stlaybridge shopping area later to buy some new underwear, quick replacements were needed.

Ex-Commie said...

James supports his local club, look at the number of pubs that have closed in Tameside SINCE the introduction of LABOUR'S EU backed smoking ban. Purnell voted for that. This ban has decimated Tameside's pubs and this government are responsible. They could have introduced a smoking and non-smoking pub Bill, like they have in Portugal, giving freedom of choice.
Slagging off other Parties on this issue makes you look like a total hypocrite.

Pete Dawlish said...

Christmas week canvassing will simply p**s people off and reveal Labour's desperation. No-one wants to know this time of year.

Norbert Cleeverhook said...

Dear Peter, Christmas is a time for happiness and when the local residents of Copley were greeted by Labour at the door wishing them a Merry Christmas and then also letting them know the post code lottery is nearly over for them they probably as you put it were not very sad or pissed off in anyway.

And as for desperation I doubt it very much it is determination from a candidate with a lot of things up his sleeve who for the last year has study his enemy and understands what is required. we know you are trying to put on a brave face but its not working if i were you i would stay in Longdendale because your fucked in South IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE

NEVER A LABOUR WARD SAID said...

DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU STAND A CHANCE OF WINNING SO YOU HAVE CANVASSED AN AREA OF SOUTH AND A COUPLE OF VOTERS HAVE SAID YES TO A COUPLE OF TITS.

YOU HAVE NOT GOT A CHANCE IN SOUTH BASIL TOLD ME WE COULD PUT THE TETLEY TEA BAG MONKEY UP AGAINST THE CANDIDATE KIA AND HE WOULD LOSE... YOU KEEP POUNDING THE STREET IN THE COLD HOPEFULLY YOU WILL ALL CATCH A COLD OR BETTER STILL FREEZE TO DEATH

TORIES SUNK IN STALYBRIDGE SOUTH
THE PRESSURE IS BEGINING TO SHOW IN THE FACES OF THE ONCE LOCAL POPULAR COUNCILLORS,NOW NOT SO POPULAR, BASIL BEGS FOR HELP FROM DORREN AND CO THEY HAVE BEEN TOLD THEY ARE ON THIER OWN. I WONDER IF THEY KNOW WHAT IS COMING NEXT CANT WAIT FOR THE DISTRICT ASSEMBLY WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHAT KY HAS PLANNED PENSIONERS ANGRY AT BASIL, QUESTIONS AND PETITONS TO BE PUT TO THEM ABOUT THE NEGLECTFUL STATE OF THE AREA ALL UNDER A TORY RUN DISTRICT ASSEMBLY 5-4 I BELEIVE. A GROTTY LOOKING TOWN CENTRE WHICH THE CANDIDATE KY AND THE LABOUR TEAM CLEANED UP IN THEIR SPARE TIME. ITS TIME TO JUMP SHIP BECAUSE THE TORY TITANIC IS ABOUT TO HIT ITS ICEBERG AND THAT IS LABOUR..............

UAF Breaking News UAF said...

A devastating split in the BNP has taken place. Hard line BNP supporters outraged at the not so secret, secret merger negotions with Lord Pearson of UKIP have jumped ship to the join the National Front. Many councillors and organisers included in this mass exodus.

No wonder this site has been virtually BNP free recently.

Class War said...

Stalybridge town centre is a disgrace and Thatchers clones are to blame.

RED FLAG ALE said...

ex-commie it funny that you forgot all about the major pub chain Wetherspoons, for example who can buy beer at massive discounts putting little pubs,clubs and free house on the back foot, you know a bit like tesco and your local shop....
but i suppose you will blame James for that to will you... the point that was being made was that the tory councilliors admit they will not go drinking in their own club because it is not their cup of tea and since the candidate the one with a little drink problem fell on a pensioner they have never been back at least Labour Support their Club. They even have a beer call STALYBRIDGE LABOUR PARTY RED FLAG ALE. I believe the tory partY ave tried the same at their local the Hare and Hounds(most appropriate for a load of fox hunting murders) it is CALLED DESPERADO

SuzieS said...

Do they know about the Tory defecter yet?

Norbert Cleeverhook said...

class war I agree you cant blame the Labour Councillors for this one, they are not in majority Doreen and the mob have been to busy keeping their own voters happy and have failed to represent the rest of Stalybridge it a disgrace have demolished buildings,everywhere, little trade and no investment incentives for local businesses, canals full of shopping trolleys and kids they class as yobs being moved from pillow to post instead of addressing the issue and finding somewhere they could go

Class War said...

For once you and I agree Norbert. The Tesco debacle proved it for me.

miracle on huddersfield rd said...

I cannot believe what i have just seen. It looked like an avalanch from a distance, as I got nearer i thought no, it is 40 snowmen on the march. When i approached i realised it was KY and the team out canvassing during the blizzard. These guys are amazing.

Labour til I die said...

I can only remember one occasion in the past when I have canvassed in the snow and found it very enjoyable.
Working in Stalybridge South today was hard work much harder than Saturday very cold on both days but today we had snow storms yet many Labour members came out and worked, there is something different about the Stalybridge South campaign.

Anonymous said...

Labour till i die, have you worked out the difference between the St John cross and the German Iron cross yet? Thick T**t

Romanian 'Iron Guard' said...

Very cold poor you, should have been on the Russian Front with us. Pussy.

thanks for the card said said...

Just to let you know Groby Street has just received its christmas card from the local candidate Ky I have just seen him out in the snow.
any minute now Doreen will be getting the call to let her know it is really happening.....

we told this guy was serious would you listen, shame on you...........

Anonymous said...

I know its Christmas but I have been doing my annual accounts for the year, just sorting things out ready to pay my bills again, my National insurance will be around £4,000 and my tax bill will be around £14,000, its been a difficult year and all my cost gave increased.
I have not increased my income now for two years I still have a decent income but I work about 70 hours a week and more if needed, I still get annoyed at all the Benefit cheats we have who get all of my hard earned tax and don't lift a finger to help themselves.
Right that's its it off my chest now have a merry Christmas

Fed up of paying for foreigners said...

Britain pays child benefit for more than 50,000 children living abroad .

I know what you mean above, all the taypayers money is going abroad. What a scandal. But who care's UKIP?

let judge both of them on their community work said...

IT IS TRUE I LIVE ON CROFT STREET AND RECEIVED A CARD AND LEAFLET YESTERDAY ABOUT 11.30...

THANK YOU KY IT WAS NICE I KNOW BASIL CLEANED UP THE CROFT AND YOU THE CATPARK IT WILL BE TOUGH TO SEE WHO I AM GOING TO VOTE FOR THE FOX HUNTING SWINGS IT A LITTLE BIT BUT THERE IS A LOT OF TIME STILL TO THE ELECTION WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHAT YOU BOTH DO THE BEST ONE WINS MY VOTE....

Pete Dawlish said...

Norbert Cleeverhook, the reason you are working so much harder than ever before is fear of electoral annihilation. Status and the comforts of Office are all that's left when you've sold your principles.

Ex-Commie said...

Red Flag Ale, there has been a massive increase in pub closures SINCE the smoking ban. Everyone knows this and that Labour should have given the public freedom of choice with smoking and non-smoking pubs, a point to which you have notably failed to respond.
The pathetic class war comments show the barrel scraping has begun.

Beaten until they beg for mercy said...

Norbert Cleeverhook, 'kids they class as yobs', they ARE yobs. Labour RUN the council and should get something done about these bloody hooligans intimidating the vulnerable, BOROUGHWIDE.

BEATEN UNTIL THEY BEG FOR MERCY
NOT EVER TEENAGER IS A YOB ONLY A SMALL MINORITY YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THIS... A BEATING THEM WELL WHAT DOES THAT MAKE YOU THEN PERHAPS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE THEM KNEECAPPED AND STRUG UP AROUND A LAMP POST DOES THUG COME TO MIND OR SMALL MINDED... AS FOR THE PUB CLOSURES THE SMOKING BAN MAY HAVE AFFECTED ON OR TWO BUT IT DID NOT STOP THEM ALL CLOSING AND WAS NOT THE MAIN REASON.... IT IS THE COST OF THE ALE AND THE FACT WEATHERSPOONS HAVE SUCH BUYING POWER THAT THEY OFFER IT CHEAPER AND IF YOU ARE NOT A FREE HOUSE THEN YOU HAVE TO SELL THE BEER AT WHAT THE BREWERIES TELL YOU TO THIS IS WHAT SHUT THEM NOT LABOUR NOW GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE DRIP TRAY.

Norbert Cleeverhook said...

Pete Dawlish, I think you are judging Ky by his cover not the content he actually wants to help all the residents not just his voters post code lottery comes to mind. let be honest yes the Council run Tameside but the Tories run Stalybridge they even admit it on their own website, they have 5:4 so they decide were and what is done and they have not done enough they have allowed it to be run down and certain areas ignored because they are not going to vote for Doreen and the gang..

do you think that is fair take a look around stalybridge south there a part that are shit holes and something can be done if they really wanted to instead they give their money to a tennis court and organised football with the police at the top of mottram road not copley, you getting the drift..
another point

Anonymous said...

Get a job West. I thought yoo had flirted to the nf.

The pub closures are as a direct result of labours policies.

Norbert Cleeverhook said...

Another point when was smoking a class thing get really you Tories and your obession with class and it always being attacked... wake up perhaps the cold has frozen you brain...

No not at all check out National Front policy on race, the BNP are moving with the times. The BNP understand that an all white Britain is not possible! A million votes last time for the BNP, 35,000 votes for the National Front.

National Front policies for a Greater Britain

* Stop immigration and start repatriation
* Get Britain out of the EU
* Make homosexuality illegal again by law when a NF government gains power
* Fight the mass abortion of White children on demand except for exceptional circumstances
* Bring back the death penalty for murder and terrorism
* Fight Globalism and the New World Order which is out to enslave Great Britain

* Repeal the Race Acts and other oppressive laws

Beaten until they beg for mercy said...

Norbert Cleeverhook, Labour have spent the last twelve and a half years building up and buying off, with increased benefits, their client State of scroungers, immigrants and minority pressure groups. The Tories may be guilty of looking after their potential voters, the difference of course is the vast majority of THEM actually work for a living.
As regards Tameside, I did not say all teenagers were yobs. There are yobs in every Ward and they need dealing with not pandering to. It's that mentality under New Labour that has made the problem massively worse.

Ex-Commie said...

Norbert Cleeverhook, if you actually look around Tameside at the huge number of closed down pubs and speak to Landlords, you'll find out that the massive acceleration in pub closures was a direct result of the smoking ban. Labour also removed people's freedom of choice with this fascistic legislation. Now get your head out of the spitoon.
By the way has Purnell paid that money back yet?

Nationalist said...

NF and UAF; extremist groups with no future.
Vote for a patriotic, centre ground Party with common sense policies committed to putting British people and British values first. Vote BNP.

Roy West said...

There's never been a national revolution in Britain because Brits don't believe in extreme politics. Griffin knows this fact, the national front cannot take the concerns of Saxons/Celts forward to the point of getting anyone elected. The BNP move to allow non-whites to join, is not a sell out but a move forward.

The Longdendale Mob said...

Roy it is trying to look like the Tories like they give a shit it trying to pull the wool over our eyes why not just say anybody fancy a shower !!!!!

you have no choice but to merger or even except other cultures without it you are fucked so you will pretend to except and hope to win and once if power which you will not get you will get shut. now go find another page and blog on that let us tories and labour scum fight on here

Longdendale MOB,
P.S
Tonight I had the biggest shock ever I was stuck at the bottom of Croft street after coming out of my friends my BMW was stuck in the snow and all of a sudden I came face to face with Ky the Labour candidate walking his dog, he helped me push my car and got me home, I Cant vote him and I Will be fighting against him but I would just like to say thank you

The Longdendale Mob

thank you ky for clearing my path said...

Great to see ky out again in South helping clear paths for the elderly you dont see Basil doing that, and no it is not for the vote he did it last year also....

wake me up at ten said...

Don't get to depressed if your paying all that tax and national insurance, it may well please you to know that some people do get great joy from your efforts.
I receive £1,108 per month in direct benefits my rent is paid and I don't pay council tax, all my medical needs are met and I pay nothing for prescriptions dental care and my eye test are free,don't need spec just yet but they will be free if I need them.
All my kids get free dinners and uniforms are free, we have another one on the way and may have to be re housed in a bigger house.
Why the hell should I go to work when I know I could not get anything like I get from benefits its a brilliant system, don't know who thought of it but it ace.
All over Africa Asia and Europe the system is legendary mother and fathers in all these countries dream of coming over to Britain they tell their children about the streets being paved with gold and its true for them.
In the old days my parents had to travel miles into Ashton to sign on, at least a three mile walk over rough concrete flag stones to get their giro, now its all been modernised its paid into my bank account I don't have to leave the house and put my new xbox game away its all laid on a plate for me.
Thank you all and I hope 2010 its not a bad year for you who work, a few more on the dole and they may start to look at the benefits system, and we dont want that do we.

There were days when Stalybridge South Labour could put teams of up to 20 people in the Ward to canvass and not only on Desmesne Drive but up Mottram Old Road also.Brown/Balls Class Warfare has put an end to that notwithstanding a catastrophic boom to bust economy cooked up over a decade in No 11 Downing Street.
