Those of us, who cut our political teeth, when Wilson and Callaghan led the Labour Party, will be able also to remember one group of determined entrists, calling themselves Militant and organising around their newspaper of the same name!
Eventually, after two changes of party leader, they were vanquished. That was at a time when the Party membership numbered in excess of 400,000.
The latest entrists, have succeeded in penetrating the party, taking it over and controlling parts of the labour party in Rotherham, with the use of a bunch of bully boys.
The group of entrists, based in Rotherham, appear to have vaguely based their methods, on the way Derek Hatton wielded power, with the help of a coterie of thugs, loyal to him and not the party.
This is facilitated in Rotherham and perhaps elsewhere, by the simple additional factor of the involvement of the Biraderi. The family, clan based loyalty system, imported along with the Mirpur/Kashmir based community, in a similar way to the way the Mafia was imported to America, along with the Italian community.
That would certainly include Councillors, Mahroof Hussain, Shaukat Ali, Shabana Ahmed and Jahangir Akhtar who is no longer a Councillor and all of their relatives!
Looks to me, another bunch of entrists in the Labour Party, have been outed in Rotherham?
They are not genuine, in their support for Labour, but are revealed as the worse kind of political prostitutes, willing to change their support to another party, just to preserve some power, they can continue to manipulate to their own advantage!
Shame on Jahangir! Shame on Moofy! Shame on Shaukat and Shame on Shabana!
Time for ‘ASBO’s Army’ and ‘Moofy’s Mafia’, to be put out of business, methinks?
