  1. Two extremely well educated young individuals, fair play to them!

    I hear Mr Akhtar has had a hissy fit, and the toys are out of the pram.

  2. I do not know either of the respect candidates but they both must be better then any of labour candidates . May be I am being unjust to them by comparing them with to Labour trash!
    Good luck to both and all people I know in these two wards will vote for you

  3. Whoever would have thought it, the Deputy Leader of RMBC having to fight for his very own political survival, the threat of losing grip on his tax funded allowances is now a reality.
    Shaun Wright must be having a right good old laugh at Akhtars expense.

    • I thought Jahngir said he has control over the asain comunity and no one from the asain community will stand against him in his west ward.
      Great candidates from well respected families.

  4. Respect you will remember the dirty tricks campaign from the by-election, the same underhand individuals are still here in Rotherham.

    At the first sign of any intimidation, bogus leaflets etc go straight to the police, any suggestion of malpractice with the postal vote go to the police.

      RESPECT WILL ROCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. All that focus on playground style name calling aimed at UKIP has seen Labour take its eye of the ball, they are now holed below the water line in two key wards.
    No wonder the anger from Akhtars fellow Labour Cllrs regarding his cack handed management of his own campaign is growing in strength, they fear that his petulant behavior in raising the profile of UKIP on social media sites will see them kicked out of office, hence the disappearing white underclass poster.

      All these will be running around on the day COLLECTING people from there homes and bringing them to the polling station to cast there votes……. In the box that Akhtar points to of course. Welcome to the free and fair elections…… Asbo and chrony style.

    • Jahngir Akhtar held an emergency meeting with Hackney and Pakistani private hire drivers association taxi drivers yesterday.
      Drivers have been shortlisted to take the voters to the polling station.
      These drivers have been told they must make sure all the voters in the household vote and if they refuse there will be consequences.
      We should have a CCTV at every polling stations.

  7. Respect to the respect party, for Selecting these two well educated brave young candidates. Let’s hope this election is fought fairly and squarely democratically. Bullying intimidation should not be tolerated. Intimidating voters is a crime, Sarah Champion has been made aware of bullying Buy some of her counsellors. Let’s keep it clean, let’s let the people decide.

  9. Those behind the dirty tricks campaign used in the by-election do have a problem; it may have been an easy option when your Respect candidate was not from the town, a very different kettle of fish when faced with two well educated young women, from highly respected local families and known across the communities.
    Be under no illusion dirty tricks will be used and used in the blink of an eye that is why we all have a role to play to keep watch, report the issues and let democracy flourish.
    Those considering the circulation of erroneous leaflets, misogynistic social media comments etc should take the time to understand the law of unintended consequences, keep it up and the house of cards will fall taking with it Labour Cllrs outside of Boston Castle and Rotherham West.

  10. “Let’s hope this election is fought fairly and squarely democratically.” Nice thought but why should it be any different to all previous elections in Rotherham? The postal vote has always been rigged and Kimber, the Returning Officer, has always turned a blind eye to it. There will never be a democratic vote in this Borough whilst ever this current lot of scum Labour are allowed to continue.

    • Perhaps that’s what is getting to Akhtar, Respect are already aware of his election dirty dealing and worse, so there is a very good chance he will give himself away. Then he will have some serious problems, with an Elections Court appearance a distinct possibility?

  11. Maybe a tad premature, Akhtar has not stooped to posting any derogatory tweets about Respect, must be the well connected candidates have some sway in their respective wards
    I wonder just how long it will take.

  12. I see that sly anti Respect comments are being made on an off shoot of that discredited Bradford Rotherham Politics blog, the same blog that published some of the most hateful posts and comments I had seen for a long time, given who was feeding the blog I should have expected it.
    Hopefully they are all on watch list.
    We can expect more of the same from this new blog, its contributors and their motives are transparent, a pity they do not stand up for the working class from whatever their background.
    They are supporting the snouts in the trough, out of touch Labour Cllrs and a morally defunct council.
    How convenient to have the opposition targeted without your name being directly associated with the blog, however given the high standing of the two Rotherham Respect candidates it wouldn’t take long to join up the dots to find the individual with the most to gain from Respect bashing.
    Or put it another way to follow the trail to the individual with the most to lose.
    Just watch the community support evaporate for a certain Cllr as it becomes known the true motives for this new blog, keeping well remunerated Cllrs in a lifestyle the average voter in Rotherham could only dream off.

  13. Good luck to Sarah and Rahisa, everyone I have spoken to in the West Ward and Boston Ward Will be voting Respect.
    We could be looking at a major upset in these wards for the main parties ( Labour/UKIP)
    I think respect will win !!
    These two candidates are not racist they are not bullies. They come from a good family backgrounds they are hard-working. They are educated enthusiastic. All the main ingredients to win an election.

  14. Its was the relatives of these candidates that brought Akhtar, Mahroof and Shaukat Ali into becoming councillors.
    These family have realised that to make a change it has to start from home.
    Ps
    We know that Akhtar brought his mistress Shabana Ahmed into labour party. No wonder her children look spitting image of Akhtar.
    West side are you ready?

  15. The link to this new blog is on Akhtars Twitter account, interesting that he of all people should be promoting the blog.
    The content is so pro-RMBC and it’s greedy out of touch Cllrs it makes the blog look amateurish.
    Why on earth anyone would wish to support individuals and a council that will close children`s centres, make frontline staff redundant while protecting very senior officers on over £120k/year, has a serial junketing culture and turned a blind eye to the systematic abuse of children in the town, is beyond me.
    If the individuals commenting on the blog are the Trade Union activists I think they are, then thank heavens they do not represent me, the word SCAB comes to mind!
    The blog is part of a much wider dirty tricks campaign, aimed at keeping the net beneficiary of its Rotherham Labour and RMBC propaganda away from any public criticism of its content especially as it becomes more and more misogynistic with its attacks on the two Rotherham Respect candidates.
    Little wonder Akhtar has the link on his Twitter account.
    The problem Akhtar and the blog has is that their Respect opponents come from long established, well placed, highly respected families, attacks on these two candidates will result in a massive political backlash from Akhtars very own community.
    Good luck to Sarah Kiran and Raisah Mahmood, with you two on the council the town will only get better.

  16. No direct attack from Akhtar on the two Rotherham Respect candidates, however over at the SCAB blog and Twitter they are doing his dirty work for him, didn’t take long for that very unpleasant video clip to appear.
    Disappointed that some Trade Union activists are being associated with a SCAB site.
