I still believe in a place called Hope

Time to dust off the "Comeback Kid" narrative?:

MORI: CON 39 (-1) LAB 25 (+7) LD 19 (+1)

ICM: CON 39 (-1) LAB 27 (+5) LD 18 (-7)

Clutching at straws are we?

Let's hope the electorate comes to its senses. A Cameron-led Tory Government would be identical to the discredited Bush administration the Americans sensibly kicked out last November. Now that Cameron's latent racism has been revealed, perhaps the tide will finally turn.

Labour really have zero chance of winning. Next year this government is planning on cutting over 50,000 jobs in the public sector, slashing 20% off NHS budget and massive tax increases for normal hard working brits.

There is no more room for tax increases. The people will not tolerate it and already over 60,000people are planning the biggest fuel tax demonstration this country has ever seen.

Labour are about to face its worst demons.

I believe in a place called Hope - it's a hospital in my constituency, lol! (did I get that last bit right?)

Now that I can't go knocking on doors any more due to the personal threats and the damage to my clothes from being gobbed on, I've set up a Twit account from which to communicate with the masses of Salfordians who will stick to their guns (not literally) and vote for me in the coming elections.

Do log on and give me advice on what to do. I need your help and support.

Hope you are getting better.
Lots of love.

Indeed there is a place called hope.
The light at the end of the tunnel shines brightly through our darkness beckoning us to this place of hope.
This time next year we will be free at last. Free at last.

By the way, I have a daughter named Hope - so I really do live with hope!

If John McDonnell was Leader and Deputy Jeremy Corbyn would Labour ever stand a chance!

Quick look at the expenses of Hackney's LABOUR MP's reveals the following shameful claims

Meg Hillier 2007-08
Total expenses £126,487 inc
Ballpoint Pens
Mobile Phones x 3
Tabloid Newspapers!!!

Diane Abbott 2007-08
Total expenses £131,735 inc
Twinning Tea
Wild Berry Tea
Mobile Phone costing £296.91!!!!
Petty Cash £250 x 2 in same month 12/12/07 and 31/12/07. Any coincidence it's Christmas and New Year?
A light blub
Ceramic Towel Heater??????

Absolutely shameful. They should both be kicked out straight away. They represent one of the most disadvantaged and deprived Boroughs in the country and behave like money grows on tree. I am disgusted

Whoopie, tweet, tweet, I just got reselected. So instead of me having to bow out now on my own, all of us in Salford Labour Party can go down the pan together at the next election.

Well said, Luke. As a Labour Party loyalist I too have a good reason to have hope for the future!

You weird, f*cking weird, person/people. If you were socially capable of making friends and starting a family I'm sure you wouldn't want to have some oddball obsessive doing the stuff to them you do here. Grow up. And see a shrink.

'No More Labour' - you didn't mention the £500 charged by Diane Abbott to the taxpayer for the photos of her "celebrating" the
'20th anniverary as an MP event'
Many of her consitituents have to live on less than this for a month- Disgraceful!!

I hope the local paper the Hackney Gazette runs something on the money grabbing scumbags Meg Hillier and Diane Abbott. They need to be exposed as the criminals they are
