Azhar Ali 07:18 - Feb 13 with 9653 viewsDuckegg

The Labour party have removed their support from Anzar Ali in the up coming Labour byelection...
This is due to his speach about Isreal, Hamas and Gaza....

People will not agree with what Mr Ali said and some will...

I guess it'll make little difference to Labour. People in Rochdale would vote for a wet paper bag if it was the Labour candidate, unfortunately.

So Labour now have no candidate to vote for and so cannot win this by-election, though Ali stays on the ballot paper. He will now have to decide whether to stand as an Independent or re-invent himself as something else.

George Galloway must be skipping with joy at the news. Starmer has created a massive headache for himself. Only yesterday morning, Angela Rayner, deputy leader was describing Ali as 'a wonderful candidate'.

It's a pantomime.

Good to see the club open to all candidates and many of them looking to progress the causes of the club alongside their own campaigns.

A strong MP on the side of both sporting clubs can only be good for the town.

Maybe Mr Galloway will grace Spotland this weekend and next Tuesday?

There are two homes games for him to win over the supporters and he'd benefit from the 8 game ticket.

I don't think he'll bother with either DA.

He'll be out campaigning on Tuesday night next week ahead of Thursday's by election so the inherent value in the ticket is undermined from that standpoint if he's not going to do all 8 games.

If he "doesn't bother with either" it'd be because he was in the Main Stand, and there's a by election in Rochdale on 29 February

Which by election will he be at next week?

Well done Simon, Galloway is using football just like his support for Gaza, the man is an opportunist, pure and simple. Have any of these candidates actually talked about the problems the town has,.. the high mortality rate, having some of the poorest wards in the country, the education standards below National Averages, the money wasted on vanity council projects, the lack of a proper hospital, the lack of government jobs other than at the job centre, why Kingsway industrial estate which was built on the promise of high value jobs has become just another warehousing estate? And why even more warehousing is to be built in Heywood alongside 7000 houses with no apparent improvement in the local services like schools and doctors? All this and 60 councillors drawing £1m a year overseeing it.

In the forth coming election you can choose between -
- Ex labour - thrown out for antisemitism - Ali
- Ex labour - 10 x more antisemitic than Ali - Galloway
- Ex labour - thrown out for inapropriate texting - Dansuck
- Thrown out of the greens for being islamophobic -
- Tory - a wasted vote
- Lib Dem - remember Cyril Smith
- Misc - The indepandants of which DAVE TULLY is the only man to vote for. Not one of the above are as good a candidate as Dave. Do not waste your vote on the dross, vote TULLY and keep the crap out.

Galloway now odds on favourite for the seat which will keep Rochdale as a town in the spotlight for a few months up to the General Election if he wins it.

A trip down Tweedale Street today on the 471 suggests Galloway has fooled the community in that area, judging by the posters in shop windows and the front of houses towards Manchester Road. If elected, he won't solve the problems of Gaza.

As it stands today, David Tully gets my vote.

Yeah Tully has my vote aswell. Even if it's for just for a few months Galloway can cause more harm to the towns reputation if he is voted in. Only interested in himself not the town of Rochdale and it's people

And there’s the irony.
The people in that area are exactly the demographic that Ali was selected to attract into continuing to vote Labour.

Correct.
I’m guessing Ali hoped his comments would only be disseminated amongst the voters who wanted to hear such things. How they became public knowledge will be of major concern. I’m not accepting his apology at all. He said what he meant.
Galloway is a crafty sod. He knows his audience and how to play them. When he used to rant about workers’ rights I was quite impressed. But his opportunistic approach and self-centredness in his election campaigns soon showed him in a truer light. If he gets in on the strength of the Gaza vote, it will be a travesty. He will do nothing for the town.

The worm of time turns not for the cuckoo of circumstance.

I think it would be a good thing for Rochdale if a Rochdale person won it as an independent even if for only a few months.

Come the General Election it will be a safe Labour seat but the opportunity is to prioritise local issues and that is desperately what the town needs.

David Tully reads like a decent bloke from what I've read:

So, the postal vote received for this by-election totals a massive 24,000. Staggering by any standards and entirely unjustifiable that so many are allowed to vote in this way. Of course it by-passes the 'show your ID' scenario required at the polling station, so draw your own conclusions from that.

It's time this racket was stopped. The only people entitled to a postal vote, should be those who are registered blind or disabled, or those out of the country on the day of the ballot.

With 24,000 postal votes submitted, the winning candidate may already have been elected before any of us get near a ballot box.

It's a sick joke.

How soon were the postal votes allowed. Might some of these be for Ali? Wasted, if so.

We are two of those postal votes, as we were away on holiday last time there was a vote on something. I assumed we would automatically revert back to a standard vote after that, but apparently not. Having then headed over to the online portal with our unique reference and password, we couldn't simply change back to a standard vote and instead kept following dead ends. Ultimately, I need to just pick up the phone and speak to someone, I think, but I won't be doing so for this vote as I fear something will go wrong and I'll end up with no vote!

I suspect there will be people in similar positions amongst that 24k.

Electoral rules are changing next year so that postal voters are no longer automatically renewed.
It will be much harder to apply for one then apparently.

I should think so too

Unless absolutely essential (i.e. can't physically make it to the polling station) postal voting exposes the system to all types of manipulation, including coercion. It goes against everything our forebears fought for, not least votes for women, for which some gave their lives
