Labour’s Dirty Tricks

When MacShane obligingly fell on his sword, Rothpol warned readers that this would be one of the dirtiest campaigns by labour at a by-election. We were not wrong. listed below are some of the dirty tricks, if a reader should know of other such examples, or have evidence appertaining to these issues, please leave a comment, or email, of course:

Telling non-english speakers, they could vote for Mahroof Hussain by voting labour.
Telling non-english speakers, that Sarah Champion was a Muslim convert.
Opponents meeting room bookings, cancelled at last minute.
Large ‘trolling’ operation by labour.
The ‘leaflet that never was’.
Undue influence and offers of inducements to secure labour votes.
Spurious complaints to police about non-existent offences. One where Jahangir Akhtar was informant and Shabana Ahmed the complainant?
Issues surrounding the count.
Questions about the integrity of the postal vote, which was extraordinarily high, at 64% of those on the electoral roll, 50.5% of those voting.
Bullying and intimidation of voters and others, in flagrant breach of election law.

A message from Yvonne:

If anyone reading this has been subjected to intimidation, fear or bullying because they showed support to Respect I would urge them to contact me immediately.

I can protect your identities but unless you come forward the thugs, bullies, corrupt and convicted criminals who think they run the town hall, will continue to make your lives a misery.

They are not above the law, nor do some senior police officers in the South Yorkshire Force give them unconditional support they think they have … quite the reverse.

At this stage I also want to point out that Sarah Champion, as far as I am aware, was not aware of the dirty tricks which propped up her campaign but she would be wise to distance herself from those odious, corrupt individuals whose bonds are now beginning to crumble.

The noose is closing but now is the time to step up to the plate and take me in to your confidence. Let me remind you of the possible consequences of the campaign directed against Respect: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/nov/05/phil-woolas-ejected-parliament-election

  1. RothPol I don’t see the highly important word “alleged” anywhere in your references to alleged dirty tricks!

    Neither do I read any evidence that would stand up to rigorous and robust legal scrutiny.

    As a long-service “highly critical friend” of RMBC and Rovrum Laybah Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns I am salivating at the prospect of some real meat on this tender subject and would really appreciate a lot more to go on than supposition, suspicion, inference and allegorical insinuation.

    Please feed me some meaty facts, purleez 🙂

  2. This is a major problem. We can guess what they might have done or ‘a bloke in the pub told me …………’ but real evidence of Labour’s Dirty Tricks Dept. at work during the by-election is needed.
    Either a Labour whistleblower comes forward or a trail of emails and/or memos must be uncovered.

    • 64% is the proportion of postal voters, on Rotherham Constituency electoral roll.

      Total votes cast in election 21,496 of these 10,861 were postal votes making them 50.5% of the actual votes cast.

      • I would be careful too about the use of postal votes .To be fair Rotherham Labour Party has over the years built up a large register of Labour voters who are now poster voters -nothing wrong with that..It would be interesting to know what the number of postal votes cast at Middlesbrough and Croydon were in comparison. Proving there was a lack of integrity when postal votes were cast is another matter and very difficult to prove.. Are you saying someone has proof of wrong doing ?

  5. I must admit on this occasion I agree with Colin and Graldhunter any details of misconduct and wrong should be for all to see; as aforementioned in order to ensure confidentiality the relevant details can be redacted. Whilst not saying that some of those ‘allegations’ are not true, I do suspect some of these to be rather superficial and nothing more than hearsay, which unfortunately would be inadmissible in a criminal court of law, if charges were brought for criminal wrongdoing. Some of claims that Sarah Champion had converted to Islam; vote Labour because Mahroof Hussain is the candidate; if you vote respect we will revoke you taxi licence, are probably misunderstandings (certainly is the case for the last one as I have spoken to a person who was present at the time this “threat” was made. He told what was said by Cllr Akhtar, and by no stretch of the imagination was it a threat), incorrect relaying of the message or dare I say lies and manipulations by members of other parties, to further discredit the discredited Labour Party??

    Whilst I’m in no way condoning the behaviour of some labour members, I think its important to distinguish and flesh out the more serious elements of wrong doing from mere speculation and gossip. I would urge people to whom some of these comment were made directly, to come forward and not be hesitant to stay in the background, as that is the only way Rothpol will get anywhere with this. Simply relying on what one person was told by another who overheard two other people talking about it at the taxi rank, is simply not a basis on which these issues can or will progress. Be brave come forward and if there is serious corruption and wrong doing then justice will be served.

    Like

      • Sorry I should have made my self a bit more clearer. I didn’t mean you were referring to taxi drivers, it was a general example of some of the rumours and allegations that were going around during the by election, where people claimed that some taxi drivers had been threatened that their taxi licence would be revoked, if they voted respect. I used that just as an example of something that might have been misquoted or misunderstood and should be separated from the more serious claims such as the bogus letter and bullying etc.

  6. Seen as though we are scrutinising the electoral process and in particular the postal voting I think we should all look at this clip I have just stumbled across, and in particular a comment in the background where a male can clearly be heard saying: “let the voter do it.” This would suggest that prior to him saying that people other than the voter may well have been filling in the ballot papers. I remember a posting on here during the PCC election about a twitter picture Mr Wright put up, but I can remember what was said in relation to it being legal or not. Therefore I was wondering what the readers and Rothpol make of this clip and whether there is some sort of contravention of the electoral law??

  7. That video your putting up was not at the time of election, as it is not shown who has put a cross on Sarah Champion picture.
    If you look at the video, you can not show where the video was taken, it could be someone who is doing this to create a bad image, if you look at this way, there is evidence many issues have been raised in the community and people like you vakas dont have an idea or the understanding about these issues.
    can I ask you a question, the taxi rank issue that issue was described by many people as aggressive and threatening in the community as many of them want to come forward but the Rotherham Council dont apperciate this information to be passed on.
    watch this video and give me some feedback you go around posting videos and you dont have any idea what is going on as you have been tricked by Labour Party.

    watch this movie and tell me what was discussed and you tell me how many proofs you want i will get you paper information regarding so many venues been cancelled regarding our Rotherham Council.
    The person who booked the rooms for respect party was told us he was threatened by Councillor Akhtar regarding his funding you want proof i will give you proof, the name is Steve who booked the rooms, he works for Rotherham Council Mr Akhtar has threatened him regarding his job and his property, he will close it once George Galloway or Yvonne Ridley come to the venue.
    if i give you the full name then you will start tormenting him and you will start going around and smashing him up.
    Thats what Mr Akhtar used bullying tactics.
    You explained to me what was the reason in cancelling the venues and this was discussed on the video and you bring me proof the Labour Party did not cancel George Galloway and Yvonne Ridley venue, why are there doing this in the community of Rotherham.

    • Dave I think you have completely missed the point I was making. I explicitly said in my original comment that any body who has information about any bullying or serious wrong doing to come forward and not to stay quite. What I said was that there needs to be a distinction between the serious wrongdoings and mere gossip, misquotes and misunderstandings. If you say that Cllr Akhtar intimidated people to cancel venues and as you claim you have proof I would also urge you to forward that to Rothpol; only by collating this information together can we bring the culprits to justice. Yes I am a member of the Labour Party but where their is wrong doing it needs to be stopped, even if its by the Labour Party. What nonsense are you spouting about me smashing people up? I have never and would never do such a thing.

      Secondly inrelation to the video I posted, I did sp to gauge opinion and see if any electoral law had been broken. Furthermore, the video was taken during the election time and its clearly in the Respect office; you can also hear Yvonne Ridley laughing in the background.

      On a final note I find it quite ironic how you on the one hand accuse Cllr Akhtar for bullying (justifiably so after having read some of post on here) and on the other hand you make callous remarks about me which are unsubstantiated and ill-founded; yet you don’t have the decency you put your own name on the comment and use a fake name of Dave. May be if your writing style was not so distinct you would have a much better chance of getting away with using fake aliases.

  8. Dear Readers

    As a member of the public, Rothpol, Can you please ask Vakas Hussain to identify what is his relation in regards to Councillor Mahroof Hussain Rotherham Cabinet Member, who was not sadly picked for the selection meeting in New York Stadium Rotherham, this was the same person who left middlesborough to come to Rotherham to become an MP in Rotherham, as the Labour party did not even elect him, if this is your uncle I would like to say it is a great shame upon Rotherham to go and vote for a party that discredits your uncle and your family, as members of the community the labour party walked out was just the beginning and this is showing how much anger people have, I dont know why would people walk out selection meeting in Rotherham, why didnt your uncle get elected and this is the same party you talking high about.
    Why dont you think about a party that really cares and wants to do something for the community or for the future.
    I also want to ask Vakas Hussain has he any relation for the committee people in Russel street mosque in Rotherham, or any relation with Sabirs take away in Westgate all of them are exposed as Labour members, I have been hearing rumours Councillor Mahroof is his uncle if this is true then can you please explain to me thank you.

  9. Personally looking at the video with the postal vote; the situation seems rather interesting. Maybe my passion as an investigative journalist could attempt to retrieve more information on this topic. Also, I admire the words of Vakas Hussain and it would be interesting if he is related to such an honourable and hard working councillor, as he has asked people to send in any evidence of any individual including his ‘uncle’ to whether they have attempted dirty tricks within this by election. Luckily for the ‘uncle’ of Vakas- he has a clean record with admirers through and across the whole town which is a testimony to his hard work although shamefully the same cannot be said for the uncles of certain other people. A place where I agree with dave, however I would differ on the motion of relation. No one cares who your uncle is or what he does and you have every right to speak as an individual so please allow Vakas the same right to his individual freedom of speech. I cannot say I agree 100% with what Vakas says although I admire and do agree with most – furthermore he deserves the right as an individual to speak upon Rotherham politics like everyone else.

  10. Dave what are you talking about? Can you not comprehend how pathetic and amateurish your making yourself appear on a public forum. I commented on this forum about Labour’s dirty tricks not to get into a slagging match with you. You talk about people being “exposed” as Labour members as though its some sort of crime. What is wrong with people from Sabirs take away in Westgate being Labour Member’s or anyone else for that matter? To expose something is to bring to light something which is wrong; or goes against the grain of what is expected in a civilised society; or behaviour that which is unethical or immoral. Being a labour member does not fall under any of these.

    You talk about hearing rumours about me, well I never knew I was so popular or that I was known outside of my family and friends for people to talk about me.

  11. Dear Vakas and reader of Rothpol

    I would like to engage with Vakas and the whole community, I am not against anyone.
    but what my concern was looking at your comments you have wrote things about Respect party which is untrue and blaming a party without no valid proof, does not get you no where in life.
    But the fact is and the evidence is shown on George Galloway video him speaking outside while the rooms were cancelled, why would some dirty person go around cancelling George Galloway venue, has he upset the community?
    Was this pretty much planned? was someone behind it all?
    This is true, someone was behind the conspiracy, Do we know who was behind it, Why did his venue get cancelled, Please do not come out with saying “You dont know but you do.”
    The evidence is showing there were left outside for an hour, was that good for people like yourself to see and who go around showing your a member of the labour party is a very good and active party, you do and play dirty tricks in the community and all the local media channels were present like BBC News, Sky News that witnessed this account in the coming of a byelection, was this known to Rothpol No way!!!!!!!
    What was the right in that, do you think that should have happened?
    That video regarding George and Yvonne can clearly indicate these people had booked a venue, while your Rotherham Councillors cancelled the venue.
    You have not showed me where your resource of information came from or who is behind that video,what you showed me, is a video with no photos of anyone just crossing Sarah Champion name off, I agree that is wrong who ever has posted that video up, IS VERY WRONG.
    But you can not go around posting videos up without looking at the video properly and Blaming a party for doing this like Respect Party.
    But I am showing you more hardcore concreate evidence which people in the Rotherham Community need to think and see themselves.regarding Rotherham Labour Council.
    Can I also address to you another issue , if Councillor Mahroof is your uncle, for the short listing in Rotherham New York Stadium, why would there pick a BOMBER, who goes around killing innocent people in Afghanistan and Iraq instead of your uncle, Why is this the case?
    You call yourself as a muslim, is this good for the community to see and witness.
    I am not against anyone but this is sad and if I was you I would be ashamed of what you represent as member of Labour Party, if that was me I would resign my membership from the labour party, it has brought great shame upon the community of Rotherham and yourself as your own family member was not choosen to represent the community.
    Then you come back to me and you call yourself a Muslim, I dont know anything about the religion, but Violence is not tolerated in your religion or anyone religion
    I would also like to ask another question, if this was not the case “Why would Labour Party do this to the community. What was wrong with your own uncle who sopposedly you support in the streets of Boston and Castle.
    Can you please give me details as we want to know your views and concerns.
    I want to know this from yourself, also is Councillor Mahroof Hussain your uncle is that true?
    I am an independant person from a predominant english background lived in Rotherham for 5 years, my views are independant as your views are bias and take the side of one party which your uncle represent for example Labour Party.
    it is shame upon Vakas Hussain, your uncle did not get picked, then him going back and supporting that party What does that show you, is that two face or not.
    Can Rothpolitics please understand the Dirty politics Mr Vakas Hussain is playing, as he supports Labour Party and then he comes and starts showing videos of Respect Party without showing no evidence and saying “This information is true” When assessing the video, there is no clear description who is behind the video and showing no faces or pictures and blaming the Respect Party.”
    This is “WRONG” please do not blame a party without any proof or evidence Thank you, we know your playing the same dirty game what your cousin is playing, this is common in the Family, but it is wrong.
    People in Rothpol needs to know this information.
    Can you also explain to me that would be really greatful, as I live in the Kimberworth area of Rotherham, I left Labour Party due to Mr Akhtar and Mr Hussain behaviour in our community.
    I am a strong believer of Yvonne and George Galloway for Respect Party.

    So Vakas can clearly hear “Yvonne laughing at the back of the video” and that shows how pathetic a person can be, as the person is showing a video and saying a person is laughing at the background, does that show you “He is not showing any Respect to Yvonne” if he was showing some Respect he would not blame anyone other then his own party for letting his uncle down.
    Is this justified me laughing and me assuming it is someone “He is not bringing me no clear evidence or anything, other then go around blaming “Yvonne for Laughing.”
    How childish is that Vakas Hussain, people like you dont know what your talking about, if you had an idea of what is going on in Rotherham then you would not blame Yvonne Ridley for laughing, people like you dont have an idea but start blaming and assuming it is people without showing no evidence or anything, This clearly shows your intellect and attitude to Yvonne when she stayed here for two weeks.

    Then you come on here and start blaming Yvonne Ridley for laughing is that what you do with your time.
    Start blaming someone and accusing them without pulling out any facts or evidence.
    I am totally against Vakas Hussain, as he critically and openly blaming a party for their actions, What about a party he goes for there are causing more and more damage to the community.

    I would also like to point out Vakas Hussain is the nephew of Councillor Mahroof Hussain, which he did not mention but it is clearly shown by himself, he does not take in any views of any other parties just the Labour party as he plays the dirty politics like his own family
    Can you please explain to me the above the questions please I have asked please that would be greatful and I would apperciate your answers on this.

    Which you have defamed “Yvonne” by making an untrue statement, I can not understand

  15. Dave and Smith Maltby as I stated in my last comment I am not going to engage with you on here and provided you with my email address to contact me and I am more than happy to discuss this. I think the readers will make their own mind who is playing the dirty tricks and who lack intellect and is childish but its most certainly not me. I will respond to just three issues raised.

    1) If you read all my comments I support Rothpol in getting to the bottom of these dirty tricks regardless of who is behinds these. Im sure Rik can vouch for me on that after the telephone conversations we had last week. I am against dirty tricks 100%. I want to get to the bottom of this just like everyone else. If they Labour Party and Labour councillors are behind such things they need to be punished.

    2) Your making a big issue of the putting up this “malicious” video. Well if you click on the link and go onto youtube you will see that Yvonne Ridley has posted it herself on her on video page. I have not said anything against her in any of my comments. In fact I have done the opposite and criticised the Labour Party, of which I am a member. I have not said anything about the Respect Party in any of my comments.

    3) I never said any electoral law had been broken by Respect. I did not know if it had or not so posted the video to ask the readers if they could shed any light on it. I did so because similar questions were raised on this blog when Shaun Wright posted a similar picture during the PCC election, but I couldn’t remember what was said.

    The rest of the stuff you have said is complete and utter tosh. As I said yesterday I will not engage with you on here for the very reason Colin Tawn has mentioned above. I gave you my email yesterday and I will do so again: vakas_huss@hotmail.com. I will not respond to you on here so feel free to email me.
