Donal Blaney is a fool

she is 20 years old and a PPC in a completley unwinnable seat.

what a bitter rant.

lets engage 20 yr olds in politics and then castigate them for a mistake, that is complety inconsequencial.

ive tried to post this on the bitter ones blog, but its such a hassle I cant bothered

The BBC, having last week hailed returning economic confidence, today relegated market data from its News Front Page. In unrelated news, the FTSE today fell by 7 percent.

What a joke you are Richard. Why does it matter whether or not the seat is unwinnable? Are candidates only supposed to obey the law if they're in winnable seats?

Why does being aged 20 matter? Is she below the age of common sense or something?

How can it be a mistake? She admits that the law does not permit overseas donations but she still recommends people contribute an illegal proxy donation instead, even after all the problems with Harman, Hain etc. Is she learning impaired?

And Labour want her in parliament?

Newsnight
French finance minister has just scuppered Browns claims that he was the architect of the bank deal.
He was just the first to implement the deal agreed by several members she said.

Most seats are unwinnable for Labour :)

Tony Sharp said...

Rex, Brown has got form for taking credit for other people's moves. It is sad really.

JH said...

The dozy mare has no chance of winning that seat, but if she is too dumb to realise her little shindig is against the law, i can see her getting into a few scrapes with her expenses if, god forbid, she gets selected for somewhere like manchester central and actually gets in...

Paul Linford said...

Thanks for the link Iain, but I'd be interested to know your views on whether DD should be given his old job back, as opposed to your objective assessment of whether he will be.

Re: Richard S. It's easy to post on Blaney's blog, click on the... er...'post a comment' link and type. It's the same process as with this blog in fact.

Iain Dale said...

Paul, If Cameron wants his strongest Cabinet of course he should be brought back.

Donal Blaney said...

Always happy to help: http://donalblaney.blogspot.com/2008/10/labour-parliamentary-candidate-federal.html

I've included the relevant legislative wording to help you all out now.

The Obama event is now just a supporters party and is no longer fundraising.

Pisspoor, the lot of 'em. "All kicking off among Welsh bloggers," indeed. Whatever next, small earthquake in Chile?
