As someone thinking as standing as a candidate it seems to defeat the object rather, if you use JimS as a screen name

Re: Potential Labour Candidate for Hyndburn

Not really , just I remember a letter in the Observer you had written about St Mary Magdalen s school leaving lights on over night. then in 2000 another letter about midnight bells at the turn of the century.

What is unpleasant is the nearer David Cameron is to winning the nastier some conservative voters seem to be. The issues and policies don't seem to matter.

I won Acc South by 500 votes almost. Are all these people misguided, misled, lied to???

Please keep you hysteria to yourself.

That is a sad state of affairs. I can't understand the level of hostility between people just because they vote one way or another.
I think everyone only wants what they think is best for the Country. I find it quite sad really that this sort of nastiness comes from so many people of all sides.

Do you only read the letters page because if they're the times you remember my name from, you mustn't have read the rest of the Observer lately

Re: Potential Labour Candidate for Hyndburn

I did use to only read the letters pages yes, but I am reading about Accrington Stanley these days. I don't think the Observer is as good since it went out of Accrington.
We have met in the past, we were both at Cheryl Southworth s funeral last year,you said she was your cousin and I thought she only had one and that was Tracey,but looks like I was wrong again.Cheryls late mum Carol was my cousin.

Its maybe because of the crap we had to put up with from the likes of you for years, but when the boots on the other foot you don't like it. In the immortal words of corporal Jones, they don't like it up um Captain Mainwaring

No you weren't wrong (when were you wrong before to be wrong again?) - Cheryl's dad is married to my Aunty - so easier to say 'cousin' than to go into longwinded explanation.

I first met Cheryl when she was about 9 and she became part of our family - just like me and my other cousins in the eyes of my Grandparents.

I think retribution is rife and I encounter it all the time. 'Labours bancrupted Britain and we're going put them in their place' is common. Suppose that's the way it is.

I feel that we have little chance of ever living peacably together when folk show such rancour over what political party someone is allied to, or supports.

Live and let live for goodness sake.

that answer just about sums up what G.Jones was saying... just like '79 they taste blood...the Tories are not interested in policies.. they have only one aim, and that is to seek revenge, just like Thatcher they will make the vast majority of this country pay a high price for the years they have been without power...they are chomping at the bit and will say and do anything to regain that power
