|Another 70 plus labour campaigner attacked and hospitalised by uglyinside types|
at 18:17 25 Nov 2019
Utter scum clearly a pattern this wee man as was just wanting a better world for his grandkids no doubt the scum on here will find a way to blame Corbyn:
An elderly Labour supporter was taken to hospital with a suspected broken jaw after he was attacked on a doorstep while campaigning in South Yorkshire.
The 72-year-old retired plasterer, who The Independent has chosen not to name, was allegedly assaulted by a man while canvassing in the village of Hellaby, in Rotherham, on Sunday afternoon.
Police have since arrested a 51-year-old man on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm (GBH).
Tony Griffin, 62, who knows the victim from the campaign trail, said the man ended up in A&E after suffering injuries to his jaw and teeth during the incident.
He told The Independent: “I don’t know exactly what this other person did apart from he punched him and damaged his jaw to the point where he can’t eat properly at the moment and needs dental work to a couple of teeth that have been chipped.

“I’ve stood on doorsteps quite close to him while he’s been saying what he says, he’s just a nice old bloke really. He’s the sort of person you can’t imagine saying something difficult or offensive.
“I sent him a message last night and he said he was determined to be back out canvassing today, depending on how it fitted in with his dental appointment. That’s just the sort of person he is.
“I can’t imagine him saying ‘boo’ to a goose. He is over six foot tall but a gentle giant.
“His vision is not fantastic and he doesn’t walk with a stick all of the time but we are not talking about someone who can run away very easily.”

Mr Griffin, who campaigned during the first EEC referendum, as the EU was then known, during the 1970s, said he had noticed a shift in some people’s behaviour towards campaigners since the 2016 referendum.
He said: “An even closer friend of mine was in another constituency not far from where this happened last week and some bloke through a door with a chain on it was swearing at him, saying ‘I’ll shove this leaflet up your arse’.
“You’ve always had people who have just got very different views…but this does seem to be quite personalised against Jeremy Corbyn and therefore it tends to become personalised on the doorstep because of this assumption that you are there as his ambassador.”
Sophie Wilson, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Rother Valley, said the campaigner was in “good spirits” when she visited him in hospital on Sunday.
She told The Independent: “This was a vicious attack. I will say that I’m really shocked at this; Bob is one of the most gentle people I know.
“He is just out every single day fighting for what he believes in, fighting for a better world for his kids and grandkids.
“We should all remember in politics that, while we might have political disagreements, the underlying similarity we all have is that we are all trying to change the world for the better.
“I just hope that this attack doesn’t silence anyone.

|A question for Brexit voters|
at 19:12 24 Nov 2019
a poll in 2017 found that 2/3 of people polled who voted to leave were willing to see the economy 'significantly damaged' by brexit as long as the uk left.
Please say yes if you feel the same way now
|holocaust denier suspended for full house|
at 22:59 21 Nov 2019
THis vile tory this week got suspended for amongst other things bog standard far right holocaust denial. But he also made anti islamic, racist, homophobic and sexist comments, these arent headline grabbers for some reason at the moment. A pretty disgusting full house though for sentiments that probably got him selected in the first place
I have waited for the uglies self appointed anti semitism tzars to post about this but strangely they have forgotten why ever could that be, I mean could it be they agree with him and because its not a story concocted to smear labour theres a carpet to be swept under? I think so

|Lib dems suspend transgender campaigner, 'furry' and boyfriend of a peado|
at 17:03 14 Nov 2019
They mopped him up from the greens, a year ago, its amazing isnt it, the outraged cult on here strangely didnt post about this story, it was high profile enough ....we've had the tories who claim trans women are women and came up with the policy to make self identity law, we've had the brexit party who are absolutely crazy for the trans big time and have been for months and nothing, ill have to check through the threads on the ugly as Im sure I must have missed them on these individuals ..........I mean the cult clearly dont approve of this gender identity nonsense so where are the earlier posts on the issue?

Nigel Farage thinks calling yourself a lady name and wearing lady clothes can magically make you a lady, see thats the problem with the brexit party it just thinks if you 'identify' as something and put on an act you magically become that thing, hence minor public school boy mainstream racist and conman, tax dodging banker and sea devil looky likey Nigel thinks holding a pint of bitter in his hand when there is a camera about makes him a man of the people........as if by magic
Good to see hes after the 1 percent self identified lady dick owners vote
|The reform of the GRA|
at 15:49 14 Nov 2019
See this is exactly where the Tories go wrong in 2004 Labour introduced the GRA that said if someone genuinely feels so uncomfortable in their own sexed body they can undergo the legal fiction of becoming the other sex IF after 2 years and medical assessment they gain certification. The tories since 2014 have been dedicated to reforming this so that anyone can'Identify' as 100 genders or more at the drop of a Hat, a tory policy that is utter nonsense on stilts, remember the tories believe that despite scientific facts its what you feel you are thats real, so dont worry if you are a working class tory who really feels the etonian elite thinks you are a true brit and one of a big tribe - thats really really the truth without any proof they wouldnt use you as cannon fodder at the first opportunity
|2nd cyber attack on the Labour party 21st century version of brownshirts|
at 17:59 12 Nov 2019
So which of the far right extremist trinity are conducting the attack? Trump? Johnson(Comrade Cummins puppet)? or Farage?
Either way its extremely sinister and shows the desperate lengths these extremists will go to to undermine british democracy
I suppose its cheaper than getting a bunch of brown shirts beered up like they would in th e past and go on a wrecking spree

Clueless tardy chump lays the wreath completely the wrong way as if going through the motions strangely no threads on here about such an insult, fake news about opposition leaders garnered panoramic poppyrage on here in the past but suddenly the cult clams up strange and insulting to our vets
|So this report into Russian interference Boris is suppressing|
at 19:50 10 Nov 2019
The one that all British security agencies says is ok to release but Johnson wont until after the election
I wonder why
How long did Cummins live and work in Russia?
Imagine if that was a labour politiciian
Seems we have boris to the highest bidder and the tories not working for Britain again
