Hartlepool By-Election 2021— preliminary look

A by-election is to be held on 6 May 2021 at Hartlepool. The by-election is being seen as a barometer measuring support for the Labour Party, as well as that for the Conservative Party government. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9438925/Keir-Starmer-course-humiliating-defeat-Hartlepool-election.html.

The by-election is seen as an important one, and that fact has already resulted in Wikipedia giving it a dedicated article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2021_Hartlepool_by-election.

Polling seems to show that this is essentially a straight fight between Con and Lab:

A poll - commissioned by the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and conducted over the phone - suggests North Yorkshire farmer Ms Mortimer will walk away with a 20 percentage point increase on the votes won by the Tories in December 2019. Pictured: The predicted split in votes

There are likely to be at least 10 candidates in all, possibly 11 or 12.

Hartlepool has been held by the Labour Party since its creation in 1974. The Labour vote peaked, perhaps surprisingly, when Peter Mandelson was the candidate in 1997. Over 60%. The lowest trough was in 2015, when Labour scored 35.6% (UKIP second with 28%). Labour recovered to 52.5% in 2017, but crashed back to 37.7% in 2019.

The Conservative Party vote peaked early, in the first election of 1974 (45.7%). The Con trough was in 2001 (20.9%).

Brexit Party, represented by its deputy leader, Richard Tice, might have succeeded in 2019 had Nigel Farage not stabbed his own party in the back in order to help the Conservatives win the General Election. Even so, Tice managed a 25.8% third placing, not far behind the Conservative candidate. Reform Party is the forlorn reincarnation of Brexit Party, but already seems doomed. Even Farage, its “leader” until recently, has jumped ship.

Labour’s national problems have been intensified in Hartlepool by its candidates of recent years. Mike Hill, the MP since 2017, stepped down because he was facing sex pest allegations: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Hill_(British_politician). A pretty dull Labour Party drone, who worked in trade unions and public libraries before becoming an MP.

Now Labour is facing further problems, this time with its new candidate, Paul Williams [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Williams_(Labour_politician)], an NHS medic: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-56460823, though it can probably be said that the story (about old tweets by Williams) is overblown.

Williams is obviously a careerist, and was the MP for Stockton South 2015-2017, when he lost to the Conservative candidate. He has also tried to become a Police and Crime Commissioner.

On paper, Williams looks like a solid candidate, with a solid background in healthcare as a GP etc, but is said to have been not very liked when MP for Stockton South. He is pro-EU in a very anti-EU part of the UK.

Labour’s national profile at present is not encouraging. The Jewish lobby managed, after a four-year struggle, to bin Jeremy Corbyn, replacing him with Keir Starmer, married to a woman who is a Jewish lawyer, and whose children are being brought up as Jewish.

Starmer is doing no better than Corbyn did in gaining public trust or popularity.

The Conservative candidate is Jill Mortimer, a farmer from North Yorkshire: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/tory-hartlepool-candidate-admits-doesnt-23821830. She looks like a pain in the neck but, as she says in that Mirror report, a place like Hartlepool might benefit from an active MP.

An interesting intervener is Northern Independence Party [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Independence_Party], which is disliked by the Jew claque on Twitter— a good sign. Its candidate is Thelma Walker, who was a Labour MP from 2015-2017: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelma_Walker. Her candidature may stop Labour from winning, in what looks like being a fairly close contest.

I do not feel inclined to call the result, as yet, though obviously Labour is on the back foot. If the Conservative Party wins, it will not be because there is sudden enthusiasm for it, or for Boris-idiot, but because Labour is sliding to oblivion. If Labour loses, Hartlepool may go down in British political history as the beginning of the end for the Labour Party.

Diary Blog, 3 November 2020, including thoughts about the party-political consequences of Government-Opposition convergence

Party-political aspects of the “lockdown”/shutdown nonsense

I commented a while ago, and also not long after the unmerited Conservative Party “victory” in 2019, that in the absence of a viable official Opposition, any real opposition to the Boris-idiot government would come from within the Conservative Party itself. That has turned out to be the case. In the vote (scheduled for tomorrow) to approve the latest crazy “lockdown”, 80+ Conservative Party MPs are set to vote against, with others abstaining. The Labour Party, though, has stepped into the breach to support the Government!

In fact, Labour’s only “opposition” is to say, “Boris should have done it earlier, harsher, and better-run“… That’s not much of an Opposition…

In the absence of a decent Government and a decent Opposition, we see not only the rebellion of many Conservative Party MPs, but a vacuum opening up. That applies not only to policy and action around “the virus”, but also in other areas: immigration, migration-invasion, illegal immigrants motoring over from France with little to stop them; other areas too: work and pay, pensions.

The Government and Opposition are just too cosy now, both headed by members of Friends of Israel organizations.

The egregious Nigel Farage has, like the businessman he is, “spotted a gap in the [political] market” and, despite having stabbed his own followers in the back twice before (with UKIP and then Brexit Party), now has applied (yes, in our “free” country, you now have to “apply”…) to form a new party, Reform Party.

I wonder how many angry and/or discontented people will grasp at the latest Farage straw? Controlled opposition.

There is an opportunity for a real social-national movement and party (both movement and, within that, party) in the UK, but a suitable vehicle does not as yet exist, despite valiant attempts now, notably by Patriotic Alternative under Mark Collett and Laura Towler.

The fact that major banks have told both Collett and Laura Towler that their accounts are to be closed, I take as a hopeful sign for them. It indicates that “PA” is starting to resonate.

The withdrawal of banking services —for socio-political reasons— may not be quite the “no man might buy or sell” unless having the mark and number of the Beast (in the Revelation of St. John), but it does seem to be a step or two down that road.

The storm clouds are gathering.

“Lockdown”, the Coronavirus situation generally, mishandled Brexit, migration-invasion, “black lives matter” vandalism and disorder, people pushing back against the Jewish lobby, the economy sliding fast.

The ravens of Odin sense a coming battle and a coming victory.

Some “refugees welcome” dimwits are just that, pure and simple; naive and brainwashed. Others are, in the lay sense, traitors.

Nick Griffin must mean “Wien“, though, not “Vienna“.

Trump may be unfit for high office, but Biden is all but senile and a complete idiot to boot. Cui bono?

Tell you what I think? OK. First of all (as I tweeted years ago, one of 5 tweets that got me disbarred in 2016 at the instigation of a pack of Jews): “Michael Gove is a pro-Jew, pro-Israel expenses cheat“. Now, of course, we know that he is also a cocaine abuser and a staggering drunk.

I agree with much of the letter, though.

I am glad to see that almost everyone has now come round to my view, expressed for years, that far from being a strong leader, “Boris” is as weak as weak could be in almost all ways.

Now it seems that the “Conservative” Party revolt might be as pathetic as only 25 MPs, including abstentions…

An annual drive“?! And Britain was part of it this year? I thought that Brexit was meant to end shite like that?…

If a police force, or an army, acts against the interests of the people, that police force, that army, are both enemies of the people.

Farage: did he stab his own candidates in the back for a knighthood?

My reading of Farage is that he would prefer a million or two stashed in BVI or Panamanian accounts to an official honour of that sort, but who knows (either way…)?

Interesting article on falling life expectancy in the UK

Austerity in the UK was a political choice made in the summer of 2010. Its effects have been devastating.”

“The UK has reduced public spending to 36% of GDP by the end of 2019 from a peak of 41% in 2006. Today, rates of public spending in the UK as a whole are only a fraction above those of the US. Almost every other country in the EU spends more on its public services than the UK does; almost every other country in Europe now has a lower infant mortality than the UK.” [The Correspondent]

The people in the report below may not have thought through their plans as well as they imagine but are not completely misguided either:

CPS charge re. cat deaths:

A man has been accused of attacking 16 cats, nine of which were killed over the space of eight months in Brighton.

Sussex police charged Steven Bouquet, 52, a security guard, with 16 counts of criminal damage relating to the wounding or killing of 16 cats between between 2 October 2018 and 1 June 2019.

The charges are part of Operation Diverge, the force’s investigation into a number of cat deaths in the city of Brighton and Hove.

Bouquet, who was also charged with possessing a knife in a public place, is due to appear at Brighton magistrates court on 23 January.

The South East district crown prosecutor, Sally Lakin, said: “Following a spate of attacks on cats in the Brighton area, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has authorised Sussex police to charge Steven Bouquet with 16 charges of criminal damage, relating to attacks on 16 cats, nine of which were killed and seven were seriously injured.

“The allegations relate to incidents which took place between 2 October 2018 and 1 June 2019. This is a complex case and this decision was made following a careful review of all of the evidence presented to us.”

The CPS said it had carefully considered which charges would be most appropriate in the case and concluded the defendant should be charged with criminal damage.

“This does not in any way detract from the seriousness of the offence or the great distress these incidents will have caused the owners of the cats,” the CPS said. “However, under current legislation, cats and other animals are deemed as property.”

The charge of animal cruelty was thought inappropriate as the defendant was not the owner of the cats. It would also attract a lesser sentence than criminal damage.” [Guardian]

Not a very Christmas-y story, but one which deserves to be reported more widely (and no comment from me, the trial process not having even started, let alone concluded).
