Elections at Conference

For those of you who are Labour activists wondering who to vote for GC nominations for positions elected at Annual Conference, the forces of light candidates are:

National Constitutional Committee:Judith Blake

Conference Arrangements Committee: Stephen Twigg and Marge Carey

Their Grassroots Alliance opponents are NCC - Theresa Pearce (who charmingly called me a "twerp" in the post about Erith below) and CAC - Garry Heather (LRC executive i.e. McDonnellite) and Gaye Johnston (Save The Labour Party).

My own GC in Hackney North was as usual finely balanced last night - every vote on the above positions ended in a draw so we decided not to submit any nominations.

Well, Pearce gets my vote because she is obviously extremely perceptive.

And it is important, unless Labour is going to end up in a fractious heap, that people from both wings of the party are elected...

Isn't John Wiseman running for NCC as well?

Pearce is Teresa. You are a twerp for continually mispelling that. On top of all your other Lukeian twerpery.

Breaking news! Not content with taking away our freedoms, and stealings hundreds of thousands of pounds from taxpayers while claiming to live in her sister's bedroom, Jacqui Smith now makes us pay for her husband's porn habit!


"A friend told the Press Association that Smith knew there was "no excuse" for the error but added: "To say she's angry with her husband is an understatement. Jacqui was not there when these films were watched."

My heart weeps for her.

Don't let Jacqui Smith's husband in your room at conference. He may watch those pay for view adult channels.

Or let Nigel Griffiths borrow your camera for some adult fun snaps.

Still they have not actually broke any rules.

No they have just shamed the Labour Party and shown what a pigs trough Westminster really is. These scumbags are killing the party whilst Gordo is twiddling his fingers. It's all over.

Will the parliamentary investigation into Jaqui Smith's expense claims for porno films be called wan@ergate?

It would appear that Browns grand plans to spend spend spend are not so popular in Europe. Germans are about to show Brown how stupid he really is.

Brown you are a liability and it is now time to bow out before you completely lose all credibility.

The worst PM on record in my opinion. Weak, pathetic and damn right embarrassing.

It's a bit rich really,on the one hand you have Jacqui Smith trying to close down strip clubs,lap dancing and introducing unworkable prostitution laws,meanwhile her other half sits at home watching porno films.

Naturally this impoverished couple that have to expense an 88p bath plug then attempt to rip off the taxpayer for their porn.

Clearly the £150,000 ministerial salary,plus the MP's salary of £ 63,000,plus the £24,000 for the secondary homes allowance,plus the £ 40,000 Smith pays her partner or the free travel is enough for these pigs to get by on.

Just for the record, the £142K that Cabinet Ministers get is inclusive of their £63k MP's salary, not in addition to it.

I don't see how JS can live this down.
If I had put in an expense claim for porno movies on a hotel expense bill whilst travelling for my company, I am pretty sure I would have been out on my ear.
Clearly the strategy is to hang out for a general election for as long as possible so that as many of these fiddles as possible can yield their ill gotten gain.

Luke,thanks for confirming that Jacqui Smith's combined salary is £ 142,000,that of course excludes the £40,000 Smith pays her husband,the £24,000 she rips off the taxpayer by pretending her Redditch home is her secondary home and of course the free travel and other benefits she receives from the taxpayer.

So an income of at least £ 206,000 between Smith and her porno partner is still inadequate that she needs to claim 88p for a bath plug.

No more lectures from these obscene pigs about greedy bankers.

We can't sack JS , but she can sack her husband.
£40k a year to watch porn.
Nice work if you can find someone stupid enough to pay you.
That would be the taxpayer in this case.

Maybe we could install CCTV in her husband's bedroom - and her sister's too, for that matter!

After all, my dear 'Jacking' Smith, if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear. That's what New Labour keeps telling us, right?

What's all the fuss about? 88p for plug and a couple of porno channels. We all do it

I recommend Jackie follows my lead and not Tom McNulty who lives with his mum and dad by getting £300k for living in a caravan.

This Labout MP lark is such a doddle and we all fill our pockets at the same time. Socialism ha ha only if you can afford it

p.s has anyone seen Nigel Gritths about? can't think why he's dissapeared?

Eric Joyce (LAB: Falkirk West) £187,334

Michael Connarty (LAB: Falkirk East) £183,466

Those two obviously help eachother out filling in expenses forms

Alistair Carmichael (Lib Dem: Orkney and Shetland) £176,190

Benefit of the doubt he lives North of Scotland

Ben Wallace (Con: Lancaster & Wyre) £175,523

No excuse

Mohammed Sarwar (Lab: Glasgow Govan) £174,882

In the trough

Isn't Sarwar a millionaire?

There's a stench to this government.

Angry voter, 100% bang on. What kind of a person would claim back 0.88 pence for a bath plug. Even someone on the min wage wouldn't be that tight.

Jesus 200k a year....it really is obscene.

Isn't it rather sad that candidates for these functional positions need to stand on political grounds. Perhaps something could be said on the competence and relevant experience of these people rather than their political stance. I would rather vote for a candidates, for these posts, who put their political views aside and interpret the rules using fairness and commonsense rather than political prejudices - believe it or not we still have a lot of members who are capable of doing so.

The more these MPs continue to take the P*ss the less respect the voter will have for them.

We've just had the biggest meeting of the political elite this year at great cost to the tax payer. The whole thing is held in secret and they lord it up and then emerge and say...."The Recession is Fixed"

For god sake, have we all gone stupid. Who says it fixed and why is it fixed and if it is why was that easy & why wasn't it done last year.

The likes of Bob Geldoff (The biggest tax dodger ever) has the nerve to slag off the French. This man deserves nothing more than a kick on the bollocks.

Something has to change fast in the UK otherwise we will end up with just 30% of the population bothering to vote. Mps need to clean up and get back to serving the people who voted for them
