With Labour’s controversial selection process for Rotherham culminating in a walk-out by local party members last night, questions have been asked as to why the leading local candidate was excluded from the shortlist after Labour sources claimed they needed “a clean break from the past”.

Having a literally glittering record for his ten years on Rotherham council, Mahroof Hussain was the obvious omission from a panel of candidates which is set by the party at national level. But local members stormed out of the selection meeting Read on………

Will Ed Fix It For Moofy?

After the shenanigans of the Rotherham CLP candidate selection meeting for a replacement Member of Parliament, even Moofy realised he may have made a tactical blunder.

Since things have settled down a bit, we understand that no less than three meetings between Ed Miliband and Moofy Hussain, have taken place.

The result, according to Moofy, he will be shoehorned in as a candidate to fight the 2015 General Election. Moofy thinks that Rother Valley would be a suitable berth from which to start a parliamentary career and is said to be focussing his interest there.

Why did Moofy get an MBE? A very interesting question indeed! The question, explored on Tales From the Town Hall. We hear, the reason may be have been motivated by more down to earth considerations?
