Cherie Blair's father v Luciana Berger?

November 24, 2016 22:54

But if only Cherie Blair's father, Tony Booth ( "bloody stupid drunken Scouse-git"), was still alive. He could have represented The SLP against Luciana Berger in Liverpool. He would be a damn sight better than Ricky Tomlinson, who, you will remember, showed virtually no interest in politics in "The Royles" (a pathetic imitation of "Till Death do Us Part".)

And if Tony Booth is dead, what about Alexis Sayle? After all, he is a stand-up comic. Isn't his natural milieu The House of Commons? Why has he been overlooked by Scargill?

The actor (Ricky Tomlinson) attended an SLP gathering at a city centre hotel, after which party leader Arthur Scargill made a statement which provided more questions than answers.

Meetings will now be held – but, when pressed on Wavertree, Mr Scargill merely said: “Our candidates will be announced in due course, but we will be standing in Liverpool and Merseyside.”

Mr Tomlinson said: “I love Liverpool and love the people of Liverpool – that’s why I am so angry at this imposition [of Labour candidate Luciana Berger, the Londoner selected from an all-women shortlist].”
" 'London Muslim' is delighted that following my campaign,Luciana Berger has deserted London but is disappointed that she may find herself in the House of Commons. One has to be admire these Israelites whose devotion to their homeland means they will leave no stone unturned to pursue their political aspirations."

"This women is a disgusting excuse for a human being. She has NO place in UK politics. And I hope Liverpool kick her right back to London. She has no affiliation with Liverpool other than the Labour Friends of israel view it as a winnable seat, after she realised she wasn't gonna go anywhere in Camden."

" Jews used to live in Liverpool and had a great influence in the city till Thatcher came after this city and they left but kept their businesses and hold on the city but lived in Manchester, and Leeds. It is right to question people who put themselves up for a job that they know little about but are deep friends of the Blairs. These people are not friends of Israel for nothing laws are being changed in this country to accommodate the wants of Israel and they lobby for this, it is nothing to do with looks its everything to do with Israel and its need to gain a hold in anywhere. Liverpool has enough racist problems yes it is a racist place just covert about it. We want to know people well before we hand them the reigns of power were not a daft as London."

"tomlinson for office. good old english, liverpudlian common sense, he at least knows what it is to be from liverpool and british. where does the muslim-jewish thing come to play. good grief, never mind her being jewish, the fact she isn't local says it all. british for the british...and leave religion out of it. it should be at least something like four generation british to run for office, that would make more sense and the all british for sure; not just one or two generations."

"What has Israel got to do with Liverpool ? She should be looking after all the community not just the Jewish one. Seems to me she's after a cushy number job at your expence."
