Labour Out in Large Numbers in Longdendale
Not exactly hot off the press but I have just got in and found these three photos of the Labour team out in Longdendale this afternoon. They were sent by a resident who had just been canvassed by Cllr Parker Perry. Apparently Labour are going for it big time in Longdendale.
Let us remember that Labour can easily win just by mobilising the brain dead in any given ward. You can imaging the spiel as it alters from door to door:
No 2 Weavers Terrace: Hello Enid, how are you today, I am from the Labour Party. Remember love, we are the party of the working class and have always defended workers rights. Will you be voting for us on September 30th?
Delvron House: Hello Jemima, that is a lovely Range Rover Sport you are driving, is it the V8? Sorry to bother you and I can see by all those Selfridges and Harvey Nichols bags you have just been shopping but could I persuade you to vote Labour in the forthcoming by-election. Please do take into consideration that under the Labour government we ensured the wealth divide was at its greatest since feudal times. We believe certain people of elevated rank like yourself should not have to subsidise the work-shy and feckless. We believe in the free market and understand the workforce is just another commodity but a commodity with a debt of duty to tirelessly serve their superiors and those who refuse will be punished accordingly. If that means cutting the benefits of the lazy who refuse to work for the entrepreneurial classes then so be it!
No 3 Pickmere Way: Hi, is that Alan, Alan, I am from the Labour Party and I am hoping you will be turning out to vote for us on 30th September. I hear what you are saying about the Slovakian who took your job because he would work for the minimum wage, and you, being a time served skilled worker would not, but that is the way of the world now. We have to move on and abandon those notions of job security and I can see from the plasma TV in your living room that the benefits system we created to cater for people like you is working fine.
Flat 52, floor 10: Hello Ms Njoki Wanjohi. It is me again from the Labour Party. Do you have the latest batch of sixteen postal vote forms that I dropped off yesterday? Are they all completed as discussed? Thank you very much Njoki Wanjohi and I will see you at the citizenship hearing on Tuesday.
The sad fact is; for whatever reason Labour appear to be able to mobilise activists night and day whereas most activists from other parties have to work and are limited to evening and weekend campaigning. If Labour thoroughly canvass the entire ward it is highly probable they will identify enough brain dead morons who they will then mobilise to vote en-masse. This would then lead to another Labour by-election victory and that would not be good for the people of Longdendale of the borough of Tameside. So come on opposition - pull all the stops to defeat this dastardly foe because looking at the results from May this ward can definitely be taken - but only with a determined campaign and lots of hard graft!
