Blind Stupid Tribal Loyalty By The Porridge Pigmies

"Willie Bain's Just Keeping The Seat Warm For My Son, Ye Ken!"

The ludicrous porridge pigmies of impoverished Glasgow, which has been run for their own benefit by generations of dodgy Labour politicians, have voted for yet more of the same corrupt self-serving tribal servitude.

Not really surprising, just rather sad.

But to be expected, in proof of a long-standing political hypothesis.


(wv 'grabin' - what Willie Bain will no doubt start doing as soon as he gets hold of the expenses claim forms.)

Voter turnout, at 33.2%, was a record low for a Scottish by-election.

A truly shocking statistic made even worse by the state of this particular constituency, the poverty of ambition that resides there, the lack of aspiration, the constituents acceptance of their lot and the willingness to continue to vote for a party that has failed the area so miserably is an affront to those that have fought & died to give us these freedoms.

The inability to imagine change, to envision real progress and that this area can really improve has been shown to be completely missing from Glasgow North East and must surely be a matter of concern for all political parties and in particular the Labour Party who have represented these people for so long.

Will anything change, I doubt it.

It will take big ideas to change Springburn and no party offered that change during this campaign, no-one other than Tommy Sheridan offered an alternative vision to the failure of the last twenty five years and yet the voters flatly rejected that vision in favour for a campaing run negatively with no real policy content.

Waking the Dead

It would be interesting to see the demographic of those that voted, Glasgow City Council reported over 6000 registered postal votes, a rise of some 2000 over the last two months which accounts for 30% of votes cast, surely some kind of record in there too.

Equally chilling is the revelation that over 4000 extra voters have been added to the electoral register in the last month, accounting for 25% of those that voted.

Lastly, it's been reported that the Police are investigating two alleged incidents of voting fraud in the contest. The investigation is focusing on two 'known' incidents at polling stations where voters turned up and when they identified themselves they were told their names had already been scored off the list - somebody had been given a vote in their name.

Officers are investigating "alleged personation".

This alone is pretty worrying given the very low turnout, how many others may have been fraudulently used to cast votes?

I “Googled” posttal, voting, fraud, some weeks ago and up popped the expected involving Labour and the Tories as well as the Glenrothes fiasco.

The 34% and the Labour majority when combined the surge in postal votes and voting registrations make this a really smelly election.

I thought of Sighthill and all those empty and demolished flats. Where would these people be voting?

I thought of the 4,000 new voters, new voters in a shrinking ward.

I thought of the dispersed immigrants and asylum seekers but, they don’t get a vote, do they?

Then I happened upon a reference to the BNP and voting fruad. Bingo, those racist slimebags are at it too!

Instead they say it is easy-peasy to stuff the ballot box.

Just get some people in control of a polling station, who have some sort of common bond; say same school, boy scout troop, trade union, gay club, religion, political affiliation, racist view, pub, etc.

They prepare a sum of ballot papers premarked for their chosen one.

At 9:30 pm they scan the register of voters, mark say 1,000 of these non voters (just a random number from my toes) as having voted and stuff the ballot.

I have to admit, as I write this from the deck of my motor yacht moored in the Mediterranean Sea that I have not voted for some years in the UK but, is it more than a BNP fantasy?

74 years of labour in the constituency and deprivation is as bad as some 3rd world countries.

The sad deluded idiots just dont get it do they ?

I believe the correct racial epithet is, in fact, "porridge wogs."

Hacked Off said...

Maybe, but after 70 odd years of poverty under Labour these particular porridge wogs are stunted little porridge pigmies.

There's a black guy in Botswana claims to be the tallest Pygmy in the world. His name's Abubu Amin, brother of the famously dead Idi. He has renounced his brother's claim to the throne of Scotland: therefore, I think the phrase 'Porridge Pygmies' is, indeed, somewhat inaccurate.

BTW I don't like being racially abused because some fuckwits in Glasgow didn't vote for anything but Labour. Do you think the tories will form the next Government on a 16% swing. I have my doubts, it's never been done before and you can still get 10/1 Labour or a hung parliament.

It is often said that in the NuLabia heartlands if you put a red rosette on a turd it would still win.

This, surely, is proof in itself.
