Labour's Taliban Moment

For all the smug stirring that Labour did during a wee bit of Tory PPC trouble in Norfolk and Westminster North, they don't half know how to have a bun-fight themselves. Tristram Hunt's selection in Stoke-On-Trent has gone down like a cup of cold sick. The Labour spin operation and more feverent loyal grassrooters have gone into overdrive dismissing any criticism of the selction process as "pathetic" or "beserk". Others are worried though and a clear split in the Party nationally is emerging.

The main lightening rod for the "forces of hell" appears to be Gary Elsby, who believed that he was the favourite to take the seat and is having one mighty tantrum now he has been pushed aside by Mandy's little friend. He is now running as an independent labour candidate and threatening to take the CLP with him. No fewer than three of TB's more metropolitan Labour chums have pointed out

by Ed Howker this morning. It seems Mr Elsby has a track record as a loose cannon and it's perhaps for the best that someone with his thought process is kept as far away from Westminster as possible. Here is a selection of comments Elsby has left on blogs:

"MI5 undermined Wilson.
MI5 led the miners.
MI5 infiltrated the EC of scargill
MI6 set up the Falklands war
Why do you consider it patriotic for the state(?) to usurp the people?
Why do you support a party that instigated crimes against society of
which we cut off a King's head?
The Conservative party are aparty of traitors. Accept it..."

"My point is really quite simple and appears lost to you die hards. The Tories funded Hitlers rising Nazi party and are mostly responsible for what happened next. Your lot tried to stop it by collaborating. Hess, Speer and hundreds of Nazi's colluded with the Tories to accept a Nazi Britain. You have MI5 and MI6 to give you a hand and Labour have no-one. The Falkland islands was a definite Tory plot defining Britain against allcomers. The Tories deliberately weakened our protection in full knowledge of mpending invasion. I'm thinking of writing a book...'The Tories are treacherous,treasonous bastards' Available from all good books shops. Gary"

The only good Tory is a dead Tory. I'm sorry, this is a tad wrong. The only Tory is a dead Tory that I am present at the burial. You know what lying bastards Tories are! They say they are dead, but they lie! Gary"

"Tories are lying, cheating bastards. I already knew this. Gary"
You can see now why Mr Elsby's claim that he was an appropriate candidate for Parliament might have been met with some disdain by the more sensible elements of the Labour Party.
