AS 2016 has drawn to a close, it has given me time to reflect on the world of politics over the past 12 months. Labour has had a very turbulent year and we can thank the Blairite-led leadership coup for that.
Blogpost: By Mick Hall “I see the young Blairite Gavin Callaghan has been busy stirring up apathy and division in a blog post on Your Thurrock. His claim the Labour Party is disintegrating is not only untruthful, but coming from a man whose bloodstained hero can do no wrong, it sounds more like wishful thinking. […]
Blogpost by Mick Hall “Dealing with Ukip is like trying to play chess with a pigeon. Even if you win within the rules, the pigeon will clutter up the pieces, and finally it will s**t on the chessboard, leaving you to deal with the mess.” I have no desire to revisit the flags furore which […]
AN elderly lady who I have known for many years said to me at the weekend: “Why are all those flags flying in Grays, this is not good, the last time I saw something like that was when I was a young child.
By Mick Hall I expected better from Ukip members in Thurrock than this, it reeks of the type of sleight of hand Blair and Cameron went in for. Yes the recently posted video about the new Ukip leader Paul Nuttall calling for the privatisation of the NHS was first made in 2011, but he wasn’t […]
A PERSONAL video-blog from Grays resident, Myles Cook as he faces up to an interview under the Personal Independent Payment system.
THE official position of Thurrock Council is that it is pro-grammar school. This was confirmed when the Conservatives and UKIP outvoted Labour in support of a motion committing Thurrock Council to be pro-grammar school.
THERE is nothing modern about secondary moderns: the case against grammar schools in Thurrock.
I READ, with interest, an editorial piece in Your Thurrock on 28 October about the decline of Thurrock Labour. I don’t think the party is dead, it just needs a stronger leadership – and a strategy.
The Council approached the Playgroup earlier this year with a proposed 400% increase in their rent with additional extra costs for the maintenance and upkeep of the property.
OVER 17 million people voted Brexit on 23 June. Not all of them were UKIP supporters, they were people of all walks of life across the country who support different political parties.
Could I inform your readers that the authors of those blogs, Mr Peter Perrin and Mr Scott Nelson are not members of the Labour Party.
AS an ex- soldier I am inclined to magnanimity in victory but I do not feel the slightest inclination to be magnanimous to those "weasly " Labour Party MPs who resented Mr Corbyn’s decisive Leadership victory in 2015 and have spent the past year sniping, bleating and plotting against him and his parliamentary supporters .
TONY Blair lost Labour 4 million working class voters and only won three elections because he appealed to Tories, the middle class and had Rupert Murdoch on his side. Murdoch has backed eve
GAFFE-prone Owen Smith continues to display his sheer ignorance towards Brexit. Not satisfied in alienating 17 million people who voted Brexit by threatening to block Article 50, he now says he would join the Euro and take Britain into the Schengen Zone which would damage Britain’s economy and cause an immigration surge. This is sheer political lunacy at its finest.
THERE are a number of big problems with mental health services in the UK all of which paint a very bleak picture for the future and unless they are addressed in quick measure that future won’t get any rosier.
The Tories are trying to take the education system back to the 1970s with the reintroduction of grammar schools.
The junior doctors and Jeremy Hunt are at war again. It is often said that the first casualty of war is the truth. Only if politicians were honest with themselves, the public and junior doctors, will this war be averted.
Another day, another Owen Smith gaffe. Smith’s latest corker is truly unbelievable and sums up why he is unfit to lead the Labour Party – and why the party is toxic in working class areas like Thurrock.
