Morning Star Gives a Puff for ‘More Borders’ Whippets, the Northern Independence Party.

Northern Independence Party 🟨🟥 on Twitter: "The battle of Brexit is over,  but the war against the UK has only just begun. 🇬🇧 🔨 🟨🟥 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿  🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 〓〓… "

More Borders Party Gets Boost from “only English-language socialist daily newspaper in the world.”

Yesterday top Newshound Jim noted this. in the anti-Labour ‘People’s Paper’, the Morning Star, wholly independent of the Communist Party of Britain and owned by the co-op.

The Northern Independence Party: ‘standing up for socialism’?

The wags of the paper which is Jeremy Corbyn’s best friend kept their tongues firmly in the cheeks,

Self-identifying as democratic socialists, the Northern Independence Party (NIP) was founded just last year. Initially a rag-tag group of socialists, former Labour activists and those still finding their political feet, NIP have developed into something of a new hope among lefties, coupling their calls for an independent state of Northumbria with redistribution of wealth and a mass of entertaining social media content that will have you spitting out your Yorkshire Tea.

Chortling along the puff continues, “former MP Thelma Walker has added a splash of yellow to her rosette as the most high-profile voice of a new movement.”

 I will be honest with you, the independence part is way along the road for me,” she admits. “If that is what happens in decades to come, or whenever, that is for a referendum. Like is happening in Scotland, that is for the people to decide.

“I am more interested in federalism, regionalism and localism. I’m bothered about taking control away from Westminster and giving it to the northern regions so that local people have a say in their local economy and are a part of it.”

Even though I know it’s fairly remote that NIP would win, I’m going for it, I’d love to be the voice for Hartlepool in Westminster, change it from within and have a go at that government front bench, even as one independent voice.

“I’m being realistic, this is about a bigger movement and about the start of something. And I think that’s what has rattled the cages of Labour and co.”

How we bleeding laughed with the Tory enabling canny canines!

They have got support from fellow more borders campaigners.


Yet we hear rumours that all is not well in the land of Yorkie bars and tea bags:

Howdy Pardner!
