Redflag reporting from ..........

Post by Redflag on Sat Mar 02, 2013 1:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

 THIS IS FOR ALL THOSE THAT WISHED ME WELL

I am sorry I could not send a daily report from Eastleigh but things where hectic from first thing in the morning until around 7-8 o'clock at night myself and others where out delivering leaflets or knocking doors

I arrived in Southampton on Sunday night 24/02/13 taxi to hotel got there around 8o'clock dumped the case and went straight to Labour party campaign office to find them locking up for the night introduced my self and asked what time do we start in the morning, on the Monday morning arrived rang the bell and a face I know answered the door but could not remember his name I think I was awe struck it was John Denham MP who with Toby Perkins worked tirelessly through out the campaign, it is funny I know all the Labour parties MPs by name but with the situation being so hectic everything went blank, I was told our own Ivan White had been in the campaign office helping out also.  The majority of the MPs all came down to Eastleigh to do what they could Scotland was well represented by the Labour MP for Paisley Edinborough and Glasgow North William Bain MP and myself.

I have never campaigned before but I have stuffed envelopes and sat on committee's to select councillors for the local elections here in Scotland, but thanks to Louise Batar that had the patience to teach me everything that she knew about campaigning and others I got it, and hope that my help got John O'Farrell a few extra votes for the Labour party maybe if there had been a bit more time but as we all know Cleggy called it quick through fear which did not gives us time to get our butts into action properly but through that we will be ready for the 2015 Election because I AM so Davy Boy Nick the P***K Clegg and Diddy Giddy we are ready for you and the entire UK will be once the cuts come into being on the 1st April.

The majority of Labour MPs and Labour party members came from all over England Wales and Scotland to help out, I was out at 7 O'clock on Thursday night with Annalise from Oxford who is due a baby in May that was the dedication of the Labour party members and have met and made new friends and will see them again in September at conference in Brighton.   I will be awash with coffee.  I was scared at first but with Louise and others helping out and showing me how its done, I met a young man just out of hospital from brain surgery, his name is Adrian due to the Conservatives dwp directive he has now lost his money which has landed him in £3,000 of debt.  This Gentleman is wheelchair bound due to his medical situation.  It was clear he needed help but I was unclear on what could be done.  I approached members of the Labour Party who then got the  MP for Southhampton to help the Gentleman's and the situation is now being dealt with swiftly.  I met Adrian again a few days later and was promptly greeted with a hug and a huge Thank you for my little part in this.  

Had a photo opportunity with Yvette Cooper on Tuesday, her husband Ed Balls was going round businesses. Highlight of Tuesday was providing much needed home truths to  the Conservative MP Roary Stuart for Dumfries/Borders while being interviewed by the media on way back from buying food to put into food bank.  His facial expression once we done this was "lights on, nobody home".  Later on Tuesday while out leafletting in Eastleigh bumped into Claire Perry Tory MP for Devizes I hate this women with a passion and wanted to rip her throat out, thank god I had some sensible labour party members with me to drag me away saying she wasn't worth it.  
Wednesday Cheri Blair came for photo opportunity and ended up getting massive hug from her when she realised that I had traveled down from Scotland via coach.  


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  The person talking her name is Louise Bartar and the person she mentions traveling 11 hours on a coach is myself, the thanks I got was too much for me to handle in the end, but was so grateful for the appreciation I got and will never forget the new friends I have made in Eastleigh.  So Davy Boy Cleggy and Diddy Giddy we are ready for you come 2015 (or sooner) general election.  For my Labour supporters on this forum I caught a disease while in Eastleigh if you want to know more PM me no Tories need apply.

I am originally from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne but do fancy Yorkshire, it would mean I have to leave my children grandchildren & one great grand daughter behind in Scotland and that will hurt but I cannot sit back and watch the SNP tear my country apart Stuart

But at the same time, Redflag, we might have to admit that any Party so feared by no less a personage than the former Tory Prime Minister John Major, can't be ALL bad, can they?

Well Redflag Yorkshire is a lovely place, a lot of my family live up there, even though they do not speak anymore, they think they are too good, even though I went on strike for them, as they are mostly ex pit moggies, and drunk half the time. You can pick your friends but you are born with your families eh love.

You have never said a truer word Stuart about you can pick your friends but not your family, I would only move to a part of Yorkshire that is a Labour area so I would be living among my Labour family having to leave my own family.

OW as far as the SNP are concerned I would not trust them as far as I could throw them, they have two ambitions Independence for Scotland and get rid of Scottish Labour so when the Independence goes T*TS up there would be nowhere for the Scots to turn too and now onee in the Scottish Parliament to stand up for the people of Scotland.

You are right Redflag, at least our Yorkshire is 75% labour so you will have lots of your labour friends love, except the yorkshire tories are bloody true blue love.

The only reason I would move into the part of Yorkshire where the Tory supporters live would be to drive them out with my Labour posters and billboards I would sicken there happiness right good & proper.

But would rather live in a Labour ares and live beside REAL people not those living in cloud cuckoo land Stuart.

Yeah - they hyphenated it when they issued their personal pledges.    Let's hope they are wiped out!

A personal pledge from a LibDem is like a promise from a ten year-old boy that he won't eat the plate of jam doughnuts he is about to be left with...
