Paul Flowers CO-OP Bank Scandal

While stuck in traffic this afternoon along with thousands of other motorists following a serious accident on the M60 motorway close to Bredbury I was flicking the radio channels when I came across Phil Trow of BBC Radio Manchester interviewing the Wigan Labour MP Lisa Nandy about the scandal regarding Paul Flowers, the former chairman of the Cooperative Bank.

Not only was Mr Flowers head of the Cooperative Bank but he was also a senior Labour Party adviser. When Nandy was challenged about Flowers and his Labour Party links her answers were far from convincing. In typical Labour fashion she attempted to deflect blame as well as dropping suggestions that the Labour Party had no idea he was a bad egg, however they were aware of him having a conviction for committing an act of gross indecency in a public place with another man.

It is surprising to consider that this was not deemed serious enough to prevent him standing as a Labour candidate nor does it seem to have featured when the decision was made to appoint him chairman of a major UK bank. But there again, the Labour Party does have serious form when it comes to this kind of thing. This list which is far from exhaustive has some shocking information about many of the deviants who can be found lurking behind the red rosette. Next time a Labour canvasser knocks on your door you never know what lies behind that cheesy smile and the cleverly crafted veneer of respectability.

You can listen to what Lisa Nandy MP had to say by clicking here and fast forwarding to 02.02.30. After you have listened I think you will agree that it is small wonder that people now have little faith in politicians.

Shock horror - top Tory sparks outrage after suggesting corruption is a particular problem amongst members of Britain's Pakistani community....

"...he said the rise of corruption was ‘because we have minority communities in this country which come from backgrounds where corruption is endemic. It is something we as politicians have to wake to up to."

Well, Mister Grieve, for the rather more clear-headed and perceptive amongst us, this all comes approximately seventy years too late.

Perhaps this is another example of Enoch Powell syndrome - lukewarm 'controversial' statements of uneasiness about that which should have been as plain as the nose on anyone's face right from the get-go. Namely - third world peoples equals third world ways. Simple cause & effect to anyone with a fully functioning brain.

No doubt this other little elephant in the drawing room will join the same scrap heap of excuses which includes muslim grooming gangs being just another paedo phenomenon unrelated to race / religion, and home grown Jihadi terrorists no different an issue than those internal conflicts between native peoples such as the NI troubles.

We now await to see if this loose Tory cannon is made to atone for his sins by eulogising some black athlete or praising half a century's worth of suicidal multi-culturalism.

Please expose new charter's scam to lend money to poor tenants to get the rent off them

Reimer said...

Yep, the usual mendacious smokescreen from Ms Whatserface to fit alongside her boss's threats that the various inquiries into the affair had better not finger Labour for any part in it. Not that such stuff concerns those who vote.

That this stuff was being aired whilst you were trapped amid the barely-functioning mess that is the road-system is neatly symbolic.

UKIP. Got a better idea? said...

I believe there are moves afoot to force a parliamentary vote (in defiance of EU law) to postpone Romanian and Bulgarian mass entry on January 1st for another five years. If this IS the case words obviously got back to the corridors of power just how angry people are about the prospect of YET MORE hordes of freeloaders and their massive families pouring in.
If things are so tight re the public finances, why's there an apparently inexhaustible supply of money for vast numbers of newly arrived, foreign benefit scroungers when Brits are being told to constantly retighten their belts. Work permits when necessary OK, but now even the dimmest, most pro-establishment British drones have realised the destructive insanity of giving millions of aliens who have contributed NOTHING to our system full access to our benefits system simply for living here.

Sorry Serpent Slayer I had to delete your comment regarding Cllr Drennan as you mentioned the 'P' word.

As you know in these times of universal deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act and often revolutionary acts can lead to the gulag. So bearing that in mind it is not worth gifting your foe an opportunity that could lead to you being jailed for thought crimes.

People have been jailed before today for using such words. Being abusive and endangering an aircraft will you get you severe telling off but use the 'P' word in anger and it can be straight to the gulag for re-education.

Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky, but Crom is your god. Crom, and he lives in the earth. Once giants lived in the earth, Conan, and in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered, and the earth shook, and fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters. But in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield, and we who found it. We are just men, not gods, not giants, just men. And the secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Conan, you must learn its discipline, for no one, no one in this world can you trust, not men, not women, not beasts... This you can trust. [points to his sword]

Too many of the same self-seeking mediocrities in power for too long, plus a spineless lapdog local media has resulted in a stagnant, corrupt, chronically maladministered and declining borough.

Anyone standing for election should be fully open about their coice of lifestyle. Many more traditionally minded voters, plus Christians, Muslims etc wouldn't vote for a homosexual say as they regard them as deviants and perverts.

Anyone defending Halal/Kosher is a spineless traitor and hypocrite who should be utterly ashamed of appeasing this type of vile, alien barbarity.

More on the Flowers scandal said...

man has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to kidnap two rent boys involved in the Rev Paul Flowers scandal.

The 29-year-old is accused of sending terrifying texts to one of the escorts used by the shamed former Co-op Bank chairman.

Police raided an address in Radcliffe, Bury, and arrested the man after receiving reports of threatening SMS messages sent to a 31-year-old rent boy.

The male escort and Ciaron Dodd, 21, both claimed Labour activist Flowers paid them £650 a night for drug-fuelled sex.

Part-time model Dodd said Flowers contacted him through the escort website ‘Manchester Lads’ in 2011.

He told how they had met in plush hotel rooms paid for by the bank.

Dodd also produced messages sent from Flowers from his work email account in which he reportedly organised drug-fuelled threesomes.

He added: “I knew what he did for a living and couldn’t believe how debauched he was.

“Every time he saw me he knew he was risking everything – but he just didn’t seem to care. He took me to the theatre and gave me presents like chocolate and wine.

“I was old enough to be his grandson but he didn’t think we looked like the odd couple.”

The 31-year-old escort also said Flowers often talked about his work. He revealed: “He said there was going to be an announcement about how a deal with Lloyds TSB had fallen through. A few days later I heard it on the news.”

Debauched and Labour politicians is a recuring theme said...

Today is Holodomor Remembrance Day said...

The silence around this event is extremely telling of who controls the West, and of whose interests are represented.

Second only to Mao's Great Leap Forward in terms of number of deaths I believe. And the Bolshevik Famine of 1921 wasn't far behind it.

Yet these mass killings most people haven't heard of. Yet the Holocaust - is mandatory education in some parts of Europe and every white child by the age of 12 has heard of it.

I want to know where these Conservatives are hiding when we keep loading facts onto TC.
We have given them every bit of ammunition they would need to fire rockets right into the Labour shite but they are hiding as always being cowards.
I bet every Tameside Tory Councillor reads these blogs.
I would not vote for these idle Tory sods either who have obviously merged into the Labour pockets not openly but certainly under Labour controls for services rendered.
The quicker we get rid of all these free loaders Labour and Tory who are living on what they thieve
out of our pockets,wallets,and purses
so the sooner we can dump all the present proven dross from running Tameside,it will stand a chance of being democratic.
How all these lousy parasites have the absolute gall to sit in comfort pontificating how we should live and what facilities we should have is just one bloody big disgusting scandal.
Yes I would give UKIP a chance but they had better be democratic otherwise its revolution time on the streets of Tameside.

The Telegraph: French spies and a neo-Nazi plot to kill Abu Hamza said...

French intelligence has a long history of being even closer to international Zionism than our own masters in Whitehall. (Though there was a spell from the mid '60s when De Gaulle became disenchanted with the Zionists, but that's a long story...)

Back in the 1940s the French hosted Zionist terror gangs who bombed British targets, and eventually they conspired with Zionist agents (including stooges from the Muslim Brotherhood) in an assassination attempt in Damascus against veteran British intelligence agent Col. W.F. Stirling.

In recent days the French have been attempting to sabotage the nuclear deal with Iran. Once again Paris is the closest ally of hardline Zionist fanatics who are trying to undermine a (relatively) pragmatic Foreign Office policy in London.

We will no doubt see the French government (with Foreign Minister Fabius in the vanguard) allied to Ziocon elements in the U.S. Congress in trying to sabotage the agreement with Tehran.

And watch out for some attempt in the Ziocon press to smear/undermine Foreign Secretary William Hague and replace him with one of their own.

Hague's been bad enough in some respects, but Netanyahu's boys have always had him in their sights for not being devoted to the chosen line!

If you read the Jerusalem
Post press regular you will note the real huge organised campaign by Israel to get Obama out of office before the next US Election.
The large Israeli cartels in the US have been going mental and calling Obama everything under the sun,and trying to wreck all his intended changes.
There is nothing on this planet more destructive
than Israeli when it unleashes its planted individuals into action.
Israel will never be satisfied until it "totally" dominates the middle east and got its
fingers in every middle eastern administration.
It has been directing the US for years since the 1940`s and now its furious
and dangerous in its intention to get back into control in the US.
More Mossad activities will now begin without doubt.
Wouldn't surprise me if Obama cops a lead injection.

In the midst of this growing and dangerous trend that is happening throughout the country, where young people are engaging in what is known as the “knockout game,” Fox's Bill O’Reilly discussed the racial element of this issue with Bernie Goldberg on The O’Reilly Factor on Tuesday night.

These knockout videos depict a wretched trend of random, unsuspecting people, many of them women, the elderly, and according to O’Reilly — seemingly white; getting viciously punched in the head area with brute force causing the victims to fall limply to the ground in an unconscious or semi-conscious state.

OAP's making life and death decisions whether to heat or eat. Banks closing down small businesses and piling on the debt for the owners in order to buy up their assets far a song. A million youth unemployed. Crime statistics so bad the coppers are having to fiddle them. The White British becoming a minority in Britain. The dead of Hillsborough trashed and their loved-ones fobbed off for years with lies and deceit by the controlled media, bent coppers and an even more corrupt government. Countless Bulgarians and Romanians on their way here - to the promised land. Soldiers having their heads hacked off on the streets of London.

And so they pack all our kids off to Poland to learn about bad things that happened nearly a century ago.

Jews are to blame for a lot of todays issues. Not all them granted infact a minority but lets face it they have the upper hand in everything. Not having a go at your average Jew because they aren't the problem its those sat on all the wealth that are to blame and its time we stopped them using old excuses to fuel their global domination game.

@ Enrichment, Cameron's so removed from reality he thinks the Tories can get the ethnic vote.
What he should be doing is taking drastic measures on immigration: this would be best for Britain AND a massive vote winner. But he won't touch the issue with a fifty foot pole.
Roll on the European elections and let's hope UKIP give the Lib/Lab/Con such a kicking they HAVE to react.
Anyone still voting mainstream party is either getting something in return as part of a block vote, a traitor, a cretin or utterly deluded.

@ Great advice, agreed. Unfortunately law abiding citizens in the UK aren't allowed to carry guns. In my view there should be no such crime as 'carrying an offensive weapon', only the offence of using it to commit a crime. The only ones prohibited from carrying weapons should be those with previous criminal records.
Diasarm the criminal, arm the law abiding.
