What Labour really thinks of the residents of Kings Heath
What Labour really thinks of the residents of Kings Heath“you don't want all those legions of plug-ugly, baseball-capped and ski-panted mingers from Kings Heath coming to Moseley to shop” – Moseley and Kings Heath Labour Party election agent for 2012
Followers of my blog and twitters will know that I was an avid contributor to both the Stirred messageboard and it’s follow-up Re-Stirred messageboard. On the most flimsiest of excuses the two moderators of the Re-Stirred messageboard: Kevin Chapman and Barnard Hobbit, banned me from contributing to the messageboard.
I am clearly digressing here, since the title of this contribution is “what Labour really thinks of the residents of Kings Heath”
Well, even though I am banned from contributing to the Re-Stirred messageboard, I do still read it and lo and behold what pops up this morning: a contribution from a certain gentleman called Gaston St Claude. His thread can be seen at http://www.restirred.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2925
Gaston St Claude is a pseudonym and has an uncanny use of words and references to issues that are remarkably similar to another previous contributor to internet message: Bill (William) Lees, election agent and organiser for the Moseley and Kings Heath Ward Labour Party since the year dot. Look at any election leaflet by the Labour Party in Moseley and Kings Heath and his name and address appears at the bottom. Indeed, he was the Labour candidate in this Ward in 2007.
Mr Bill Lees was a regular contributor to the old Stirrer message until I revealed comments he had made about residents of Kings Heath on another message. After this Mr Lees stopped contributing to the messageboard, but a whole series of pseudonyms have appeared since who remind me exactly of him.
As Mr Lees is still a major influence within the Moseley and Kings Heath Ward, this gives me an opportunity to dust down my files and remind residents of what the Labour Party election agent thinks of them.
Below are quotes by Mr Bill Lees, Election Agent for the Moseley and kings Heath Labour Party, on Kings Heath. Just in case Mr Lee’s decides to erase these comment, I do still have screen dumps of these and many other of his comments on local life and people.
