Local government corruption: another reason to stuff Labour
As we head into the election now officially called for the 6th May, there so many good reasons why New Labour needs to be done over that it is difficult to pick any particular one out. That said, here's a reason that I hadn't heard before:
Craig Murray reports that the regime has now thoroughly corrupted local government and politicised the office of chief executive. Remember that those office holders are usually the election returning officers, so this coming ballot is probably going to be pretty filthy.
In Blackburn, one Bhushra Irfan has decided to run as an independent and placed a hoarding in her garden to announce this fact. Within three hours a gang of council workmen had arrived to pull it down, claiming a breach of the planning regulations. However, as Craig point out, election materials such as this are protected by electoral law, but we are talking about Blackburn here, and the place makes Tammany Hall look clean.
