with 6 comments

Showed Raving Loonies What’s What.

All left-wing  eyes are on Manchester where Respect’s Catherine Higgins (182 votes, 1,1%) unexpectedly beat the Monster Raving Looney Party’s Howling Laud Hope (78 votes, 0,5%).

It’s onwards and upwards for Britain’s fastest disintegrating  political party.

  Labour Co-op Lucy Powell 11,507 69.1 +16.4
  Liberal Democrat Marc Ramsbottom 1,571 9.4 -17.2
  Conservative Matthew Sephton 754 4.5 -7.3
  UKIP Chris Cassidy 749 4.5 +3.0
  Green Tom Dylan 652 3.9 +1.6
  BNP Eddy O’Sullivan 492 3.0 -1.1
  Pirate Loz Kaye 308 1.9 N/A
  Trade Unionist & Socialist Alex Davidson 220 1.3 N/A
  Respect Catherine Higgins 182 1.1 N/A
  Monster Raving Loony Howling Laud Hope 78 0.5 N/A
  People’s Democratic Party Lee Holmes 71 0.4 N/A
  Communist League Peter Clifford 64 0.4 N/A
Majority 9,936 59.7  
Turnout 16,648 18.2  
  Labour Co-op hold Swing


Catherine Higgens, who supports the 9/11 ‘truth’ campaign, could not be contacted at the time of writing.

Update. National Respect issued the following statement,

This brilliant result shows that if you want change in Britain vote for Respect. Catherine Higgens has shown that nowhere is safe for the Monster Raving Loony Party. Yvonne Ridely and George Galloway are at present recording a rap, “do the Taliban mash”. Watch out Rotherham, we’re coming!

  3. They are indeed the Pathfinder lot, although I hear that Brian Grogan is now teaching in the USA at a private school for genteel young ladies.

  5. Most amusing. Seeing the terms “Brian Grogan” and “genteel young ladies” in the same sentence is , well, you know………

  6. A sub headline on one of the leaflets put out by RESPECT in Manchester Central contains the prophetic and memorable, ungrammatical, phrase
    “A vote that everyone will take notice of”
