Scumbag Labour - Post Offices

Back in 2008 the Labour UK Government voted in favour of closing 2500 post offices. The opposition had wanted the closure to be suspended, pending further review but Labour voted no to the suspension. Now that Labour are the opposition party they are keen to keep local post offices open. One of these post offices they are trying to keep open is in Peter Hains constituency of Neath.

In the 2005-2010 Parliament Wales had 29 Labour MPs. And their voting record on whether suspend the Labour Governments closure programme in March 2008 was as follows.

Note we see that only one Labour MP broke ranks. Naturally Peter Hain voted in favour of closing the post offices, five of his cronies couldn't even be bothered to turn up. The rest followed suit and rolled over for their masters in London. Here is the original picture of the slightly crumpled flyer.

In case you can't quite make it out, here is the small print at the bottom of the leaflet.

Let's zoom in a bit more just for the sake of Labouring the point, get it?

But isn't this just typical of Labour and especially typical of Peter Hain and the rest of the so called Welsh Labour Party. Screw us over in Wales when they're in power and then blame the Tories when they're not.

How long are we going to let them get away with it?

  1. How long are we going to put up with it? ..... Until Plaid Cymru gets a backbone, and realise that the Labour party is destroying Cymru.

  2. Plaid should have Labour by the throat. We have got to get rid of New Labour.

  3. Fuck me!
    What an embarrassment.

      Quite unbelievable, to paraphrase Muhammed Ali. "Man, I ain't got no quarrel with them non-Whites." I wonder if it is worth reporting that poster to the police?
