Gordon Gone, David to take on Goliath's £Millions?



Gordon Brown resigned as Labour Party Leader within the last hour. It was the right thing to do. Harriet Harman, Alastair Darling, Alan Johnson and others have ruled themselves out as potential Leaders.

Of those that who might stand and talking to people on the doorsteps, the person best placed to be the next Leader of the Labour Party is David Miliband. It will be interesting to see who stands.

  1. Switching from the national scene just for a moment, I see that Tory Councillors Simon Moores and Ken Gregory are making allegations on Moores's blog about Westgate Independent Councillor Tom King. It is not, of course, the first time that Moores has sought to put the knife in to his fellow Ward Councillor. The allegation is that King is in fact a Labour supporter, Moores having allegedly seen him on TV at an election count. Gregory accuses him of being a "closet Liberal". If Moores is right, then perhaps King has some explaining to do. But despite the frequent pronouncements from these two Tories about blogging standards, instead of confronting King personally, they both smear the story across a blog instead. Which just goes to prove what hypocritical bilge pours from the mouths and keyboards of these two.

  2. I hope there is at least one female candidate.

  3. Labour played a good game today in putting pressure on the Conservatives that ensured that they had to give the LibDems as many concessions as they did.
    Knowing that they had no intension of forming the next government it looks like Alastair Cambell and Peter Mandelson must be laughing all the way into opposition.

  4. This really is a case of current TDC posionous politics. People have such short memories, during the eigthties some of the independants at TDC were independants at local level. But Tories nationally, I can even recall some having Roger Gale posters in their windows. But in the eighties nobody really took any notice, so what after all we are still a democracy.

  5. And there are none more poisonous than those currently spreading this story about Councillor King. In just the same way that Moores cannot accept any personal criticism or any arguments that conflict with his own, he has never been able to come to terms with Westgate's decision not to elect 3 Tory Councillors. It was only a matter of time before he turned his spite and venom on his non-Tory colleague. Personally, I think King should offer clarification, but the two Tories should tackle him directly about it, not via a (barely read) blog which is operating to standards supposedly reviled by the blogmeister. Poison and hypocrisy combined - not bad.

  6. Sorry to rain on your parade but as pointed-out to our venomous but anonymous friend on Tony Flaig's weblog first, this was put to Cllr King at the WWRA meeting on Monday evening. I'm simply reporting the matter!

    Anonymous appears to have an agenda of his own!

  7. And what was Councillor King's response? Or, as usual, doesn't it suit you to tell the whole story?

  8. Well Councillor Moores, I am gobsmacked by your quoting the lovely Barbra. That's shown a whole new side to you that I never knew existed! My only agenda here is exposing yours, and your double standards over blogging. But you have done that ably yourself, so thanks. Even though "you don't bring me flowers any more".

  9. Councillor King has now answered your discreditable little story, "Doctor" Moores - on Thanet Coast Life. I wonder if you will acknowledge what he has said and apologise for any wrong impression, insult, or even defamation (the accusation you love to use against others and the threat you repeatedly hurl) that your "steadily improving" blog may have delivered. Clearly you need to improve a lot more before you acquire the right level of decency. Perhaps your vocal little side-kick, once Labour now Tory Gregory will do the same?
