Hypocrisy

Interesting to read the views of the Cllr the Tories wanted to get rid of Jamie Chowdhary at his website. He and Cllr Mark Ralph are now independents and both of them seem to be acting as a group on this site. I was curious to see if they had anything to say about the so called Labour racist dog whistle leaflet but could find nothing. In contrast Tories and Lib Dems appear to still be in alliance, they are the only ones in Reading politics saying this. While I agreed that the leaflet was dodgy, I dont think its actually racist. But as it says on my bolg, this is just my view, not any secret deal of several Green bloggers to support Labour as claimed by Gareth Epps. He says "though Green Party bloggers either through ignorance or allegiance to Labour have disgracefully defended this". His party is the one in coalition, what they get out if it remains unclear. Aside from probably electoral defeat, voters wont forget the broken promises. They hope people will thank them for the few good policies while blaming the Tories for the bad ones, but they are not to be taken for fools. Both are responsible, and will be held to account by voters. Another dodgy Lib Dem blogger meanwhile has admitted to Readings own version of the phone hacking scandall. He rigged a poll on the local newspaper so that the LD won it. Thats probably the only way the LD will win anything, but surely breaking the law is not the way to win. He offers to rig polls for other parties for cash. "If any other party would like to benefit, please send a large brown envelope stuffed with cash to muckspReading Towers." I hope the authorities prosecute, a term in prison may help him see the error of his ways. Perhaps he get kicked out of the Lib Dems once again. So to the Tory and Lib Dem bloggers making accusations about racist dog whistles, I ask a question. The Tory LibDem government has a policy that appears to be resulting in ethnic cleansing, where is your condemnation or refutation of that? Or is it only when other parties to dodgy things that they get morally indignant. Theres a word for this, hypocrisy. Time for a change, vote Green May 3rd.

Come on Adrian, you might not like the guy ,or find him an easy target, but surely you can see that he is just proving a point ie. that he can rig the poll ! The result was hardly going to be believed.

With regard to the Conservatives, it seems to me that while they are fighting each other in Peppard ward they are not out campaigning in the seats that they would very much like to hold onto. Peppard is safe Tory territory, especially with the Libdems in freefall and their self destruct button, which was pressed with the de-selection of Jamie Choudhary, may well end up costing them seats elsewhere!
I saw Richward Willis at 8o'clock last year on election day still knocking dooors in Church ward. Will he be doing it again this year in Church........or in Peppard?

We are normally knock on doors till about 9.50 so 8 would be an early night.

Warren has been funny but also an embarrassment to his party. For me offering to cheat for money is beyond a joke, thats a crime.

Lighten up Adrian! Do you really think this was a serious attempt to make some money from such an obvious rigging of a poll ? He was obviously having a laugh.
