A local Momentum organiser in three responses to an article (Save our Sarah) on Rothpol failed to deny allegations that they’re plotting with elements from the Council of Mosques(CoM) to oust Sarah Champion as MP. Ian Roddison (aka RadishRoddo;) criticised elements of the article, but totally ignored the core allegations of their threat to Champion, an electoral pact with the CoM and with their agents the Peoples Front of Judea https://youtu.be/WboggjN_G-4
Radish also denied Momentum involvement with disgraced former councillor Jahangir Akhtar. Saying he was certain because of Akhtar’s (a prominent local Muslim) non-attendance at meetings held in a local pub. Radish seemed unaware of Momentum support for Akhtar’s close friend Shabana Ahmed in gaining the Labour nomination to stand for Brinsworth & Catcliffe Ward. Or Akhtars subsequent bragging about pulling strings to get her the nomination.
Raddish was deeply upset at a perceived attack on his friend and leading local Momentum figure Cllr Wendy Cooksey. The author Wil Ewart apologised for Radish’s misunderstanding of what in Yorkshire we call as a backhanded compliment. Saying she is the only Momentum member with “half a brain” is really a deliberate slight of other Momentum members, not her.
However Radish also failed to comment on an allegation that Cllrs Cooksey, Yasseen & Alam are the unofficial shortlist from which Momentum and CoM will select the replacement to Sarah Champion. With Alam the favourite unless Labour enforce an all women shortlist.
Radish was so disgusted by life that he challenged article author Wil Ewart to a show down at the OK Bridge Inn during the public bit of Momentum’s monthly Politburo meeting. Inferring he would whip Ewarts ideological ass with an uppercut of dialectical materialism followed by a collectivist denouncement of him as a class traitor.
The bout is limited to an hour so that Momentum can kick out the public and get back to playing bingo while plotting the downfall of capitalism and Sarah Champion. The Politburo meetings, far from being secretive and exclusive, are regularly advertised in Radish’s lounge. That the public are kicked out for the best bits is really true democracy in Momentum newspeak.
When asked to comment on Radish’s passionate denial of everything unimportant in the article, while whistling the “Red Flag” and ignoring the most important points, author Wil Ewart said the Radish’s response is a red herring.
He also suggests that Momentum watch out for some of Akhtars known proxies in his war to free Taxistine from the Licensing oppressors and the formation of a Taxiate ie. Yasseen, Alam and another couple of Mirpuri/Kashmiri lads known to be double agents.
With regards to the suggested Politics Slam at the monthly Politburo meetings he commented “I’d rather sit on a rusty nail.”

PS since going to press it has come to my attention that the Peoples Front of Judea is in fact a Jewish group, and aren’t best pleased with Momentum.
PPS: Towards the end of a fascinating debate on RothPol one of the four Momentum contributors said that really they like Sara Champion. Too little, to late.
