Opinion: Above is the Labour Party election candidate's campaign leaflet here in Hull West and Hessle, Alan Johnson's former constituency. To be precise it is one side of the leaflet as it is stuck to our front room window and just as I was about to pop outside to grab an image of the other side rain began to fall.
It does not matter though as just using the one side illustrates important points.
The candidate is a local woman called Emma Hardy who was a teacher locally for ten years. The leaflet gives a little information about Emma and highlights what she will aim for if elected Member of Parliament to represent Hull West and Hessle at Westminster.
It is quite clear that if Emma Hardy wins the election on June 8, 2017, she will serve Hull West and Hessle and serve us well.
So fancy a look at a Tory campaign leaflet dropping through Hull West and Hessle letterboxes Saturday?
Take a look below at two images which show both sides of the Tory election campaign leaflet which arrived in Hull West and Hessle Saturday..
Who is the local candidate? Who knows?
To be honest I had no idea whether a Tory was standing here or not.
A quick search online for the purpose's of this post revealed;
Hull West & HessleThat search also appears to reveal that Mackay stood in Hull East in 2015 and 2010 but did not win either time. She was a BRexit campaigner in 2016.
And for the Tory Party the 2017 General Election will be fought on BRexit and personalities.
Presumably Theresa May had a heads up from Donald Trump when she visited Washington recently and they held hands. She also met with press baron Rupert Murdoch when she visited the USA on a separate occasion who will have also offered campaign advice. Then we have David Cameron back out of his self-inflicted absence from politics now that the CPS has announced its findings re allegations of Tory Electoral fraud in 2015. Mrs May has already taken a leaf or two out of Cameron's how to play politics book - get personal. Sir Lynton Crosby awarded a knighthood by David Cameron for services to the Tory party, that is helping them win GE2015, completes the picture.
The Tories are opting to tap into strengths and weaknesses real and or perceived of the two party leaders.
And in some cases it is working.
If you look at the three images shared here and believe the Tories will represent you well you are deluded.
The Labour Party is offering real hope and positive changes that will improve the lives of us all because if the Tories are allowed to continue on their merry way with their wrecking ball we will ALL lose.
It is not rocket science.
Increasing rich poor, old young, well infirm, north south divides will destroy society bit by bit. By the time you realise what is happening it will be too late.
And if Theresa May wins June 8 she and or her party will have five full years. Just think about that and the damage they can and will do
If you have fell for the lie that Jeremy Corbyn is weak open your eyes. He has shown strength of character throughout his parliamentary career. The man is not for sale.
Perhaps that is what they fear?
This week Jeremy Corbyn, Labour politicians and their supporters have been election campaigning.
Unelected Tory Party leader Theresa May has opted for a more limited campaign so far.
Well she is called the "submarine" by some for obvious reasons and also "mummy" by some in her cabinet also for obvious reasons.
The General Election June 8, 2017, is important. Such elections are always important but this one is crucial for many voters and for many reasons. If Theresa May wins and wins big time she will have a free hand to extend so called austerity measures.
The Tory Party has a huge election campaign chest stuffed with money and will outspend the Labour Party.
But that does not guarantee the Tories will win on June 8.
One of the few promises the Tory Party has ever kept is holding an in or out European Union referendum. While the Tory Party is split and having serious rows behind closed doors the truth is that many Tory voters and supporters have a vested interest in the UK leaving the EU.
The Labour Party will respect the EU referendum result and British democracy but ensure we all get the best deal available.
Watch the campaign launch below, make sure you are registered to vote and on June 8 #VoteLabour
Op-Ed; Some Jeremy Corbyn and Labour Party supporters have been sharing links and images with a theme 'I like Jeremy Corbyn but' - well it is lesson learned on that score.
The links try to cut through the doubts some voters may have after being all but brainwashed by spin doctors and the right-wing media.
Let's face it what's not to like about current Labour policies?
Some voters remain unsure of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn but why?
He is a veteran politician, has always been on the right side of political history, wants a fair and decent British society that works for all not just a few, he actually CARES, is not for sale and so much more.
But at PMQs Diane Abbott learned the hard way that the Tory government will sink to any depths to win GE2017.
Their well-paid team of spin doctors under the careful watch of Sir Lynton Crosby, a lizard of Oz who has a track record helping right-wing politicians win elections, knows and will use any trick in the book.
This blogger wonders who spent hours trawling social media so that Theresa May could take a pot shot at Diane Abbott over "I Like Jeremy Corbyn But?"
They obviously know the point of the phrase is to win over support but prefer the smug, arrogant sly digs at PMQs once again proving they are style over substance.
Crosby was knighted post GE2015 for services rendered to the Tory Party; the Tory party who like to use and abuse the honours system and rewarded Crosby and failed Chancellor George Osborne not so long ago.
Crosby was part of an election campaign which is still under police investigation for financial irregularities which could result in jail time for some Tory MPs. Of course if Mrs May can convince people to vote Tory June 8 she may be able to reform the electoral system and save their hides.
With selective reporting of PMQs courtesy of their mainstream media friends you will have to watch the who matinee session on catch up for yourself.
Mrs May really does take the electorate for granted assessing us all as fools.
The campaign to encourage flip flop voters to vote tactically to remove the Tories from office is being spearheaded by
Simply repeating your mantra Mrs May "Strong and Stable" over and over again in true Dalek fashion actually highlights the current government is anything but "Stable and Strong."
They are divided on BRexit and more.
The campaign to persuade voters to vote tactically to oust the Tories from power is being overseen by friends of the Conservative Party.
You are being led like lambs to slaughter but remember you can take a horse to water but not make it drink.
WE will vote and it will be #VoteLabour because here's the thing.
I like Jeremy Corbyn and I dislike Theresa May.
Need more convincing?
All things Corbyn
