Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

There was talk prior to the election that consituencies could oust their MP if they were not satisfied with their performance. Was this ever implemented, or was it just another example of false Westminster spiel?

Any of the small minority of 'yes, he did the right thing' voters, brave enough to publicly share with the forum why you think that?

It would be helpful if you could.

As the reason why it was the right way to vote last night, seems to be alluding the greater majority of people on here.
Well it aint alluding me who those 3 probably are, n would suggest they aint got the balls to helpful.

My spirit guide, Septic Peg, isn't able to help you...just yet.



All she's getting is a red mist.

Which is preventing clearer vision.

See, this is where us oiks fail to see and understand things, like what your political elite can do guv'nor.

They're ever so cleverly able to spin those harsh words of yours.

Hey presto!

'Cowards, skulking in darkened corners' becomes 'Those better able to comprehend complicated ideas, exhibiting selfless, loyal, bravery'

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

I cant say this is a shocker .

Wasnt Graham kicking up a fuss on facebook asking for support to keep Hyndburn a constituancy or we may loose our voice in parliament.

Whats the point of having a voice in parliament if it isnt saying what we want it to ?

He knows damn well from many years of reading this forum what public opinion is on this matter and spat in the faces of the people who elected him to represent us when he voted against the majority.

cameron dosnt think we have a right to an opinion and it seems graham jones dosnt either amongs the rest of teh other yellow livered lot thattowed the line

Im only 1 vote but its one less next time round and i will remember this when the next load of crap gets said about wanting to serve the area because this proves he dosnt.

well done to those of any party that defied tehir leader and listened to tehir real boss's which is us teh peopel who put them where they are

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

I haven't voted.

The thread serves no useful purpose.
It appears on a par with a public flaggelation, and a witchunt of people who don't agree with the majority.

Neither is a desirable aftermath of the event.

Move on please.

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

Well boys and girl's, tomorrow's fun Accy Web poll question will be -

'How well as Graham Jones M.P. dealt with this crisis of support, and adequately explained his decision to vote, that others be denied their own vote in a referendum?

1. 'Yes, the lad's done brilliant. No, I'm not a member of the Labour party...honest!'

2. 'He's utterly failed to convince me, that it was the right thing to do.'




Only joking.

I've exceeded my yearly poll quota.

Er...thank you for your non-contribution point of view, but I, and I presume others, won't be 'moving on'.

I firmly believe when something is very wrong, then you should at least try to right that wrong.

Bored, don't like what's being said, can all be easily solved.

Don't bother reading it.

As for 'witch-hunt'.

Are you having a laugh?

I'm sure an ambitious young politican like Graham can take all this gentle ribbing in his stride.

It's certainly no different from how he treated Karen Buckley, the Conservative candidate in the last General Election.

Scrub 'witch-hunt'.

Think more 'Peasants' Revolt'.

The downtrodden rising up against their elitist oppressors.

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

god forbid somone use a local forum to inform others of what is occuring in our comunity and decisions made that effect all of us and generations to follow.

its ok for coucnilors to come on here flapping their gums about massive injustice but the second a member of public does it then its not ok ?

I for one am glad this has come up as a discussion as it shows exactly what our representitive thinks of our opinion.

Not to worry a few good deeds down the line and a few feel good stories in the paper and this will all be forgotten .

What saps we must seem to those above
