Labours dirty tricks in selection contests?

Rotherham Politics has learned that some selections are perhaps being managed by excluding members from the selection process by means of the simple expedient of failing to invite all qualified members to meetings!

Rotherham Labour Local Government Committee responsible for the selection process needs to up it’s game to ensure that manipulation such as this is stopped and those responsible brought to book. For a democratic party to indulge in such tricks is quite outrageous and indicates the malaise infecting the Labour Party in Rotherham.

One wonders who presides over this poor excuse for an LGC? Is this another manifestation of scum Labour?

Next Years Crop?

Political parties throughout the country are beginning the process of choosing their candidates for next years round of local council elections.

This list below details the Rotherham councillors that successfully fought these seats the last time they were contested in 2007.

If this list ends up looking anything like next years field of candidates then both Labour and the Tories are definitely having a laugh at our expense! It must surely be time for some of of them to go if their respective political parties want us to take them at all seriously in the future.

Hens ‘earn their corn’ by laying eggs, when they stop laying, it is surely time for them to go!

So too it should be on the council, when they have out lived their usefulness, it is time for them to stand aside, not to continue on until carried out in a box!

Even the Labour Party insists that being a councillor is not a job for life, but it is a pity that the Labour Party’s writ does not run as far as Rotherham, never has!

Which is why we are landed with such poor candidates year after year because no one wants to give up their allowances that give them a good life. We must not forget the ‘State Funeral’ that is their due entitlement if they die in office. We must also not forget, that when there are ‘bodies buried’, it pays to be around lest anything gets out.

When a labour councillor dies, the relatives of the recently deceased are treated to an immediate search and removal of anything that appertains to the work on the council of their loved one, quite outrageous when you have seen it up close from the relatives perspective!
