You cannot be in politics without irritating some people, it goes with the territory. Some choose polite discourse on the topic at hand, a minority are less restrained.
Jon Fuller has form when it comes to attacking me. I am a man of many sins, according to Jon. I am, in his opinion, a child murderer, and now a racist. Anyway, don't take my word for it, I reproduce below his latest rantings.
Before that, though, you may find this an interesting read: The ugly Green Party agenda – standing for no other reason than to stop me.
It seems I got right up Julian Ware-Lane's nose. Good. I am delighted.
Julian is one of those pro-pollution plain nasty Labour councillors who
vigorously supported expansion of Southend Airport, despite knowing the
utter misery this would cause the locals, and knowing that increasing
greenhouse gas emissions would kill ever more black & Asian people.
He says the leaflet tells “lies” but I suspect we will wait a long time before hearing what “lies” have been told.
I don’t usually bother to engage with proudly anti-science politicians
but he makes an important error in his rage which I had to correct. This
is not an election leaflet. 20,000 leaflets were ordered but the bad
weather put the team back and we were not able to finish distribution
before the local election period began. We stopped leafleting on Friday
16th March and, unless the Tories suddenly decide to meet their COP21
international commitment and start protecting the NHS, deliveries will
recommence after the May elections.
Welcome to the politics of
protest Julian. If you lived in Sheffield right now you would know all
about decent people taking on vicious Labour politicians.
is the type of illinformed chap who shoots his mouth off and then runs
for cover. So it is ironic that he calls for debate.
normally have a canter through the papers and specialist eco websites
first thing in the morning and post interesting items here on FB, but I
will pause for 24 hours. I doubt any of my Labour supporting FB chums
will want to stick up for Julian Ware-Lane,
and I am pretty damn certain Julian won't be offering any evidence I
have lied, nor will he have the integrity to apologise, but I will leave
it for 24 hours to see if anything happens.
No surprise there, Julian Ware-Lane remains silent & he is out on his own.
Jordan tells me that Julian used to be a member of the Green Party but
didn’t stay long and hopped it to Labour. That doesn’t surprise me, the
Greens don’t support the expansion of polluting activities so Julian wouldn’t have felt at home.
Julian hears news about the number of children being killed by climate
change (340,000 p/a) his reaction is different to everyone else, and
demands the expansion of aviation. When Julian hears news that low lying
states and the Caribbean may soon be uninhabitable, he falls silent and
refuses to contemplate a reduction in such polluting activities. Indeed
the only thing we heard from him in recent weeks was to whinge about
the increase in car parking charges at the airport !
What an awful human being he is.
would never occur to Julian that Black & Asian lives matter; that
is wrong to kill children and that ‘environmental racism’ is as nasty as
Like many others I have followed the
attacks upon Corbyn over anti-Semitism (principally by the right wing of
the PLP). During the 2014 Israeli attack on Gaza the UN said that 1,462
civilians, including 495 children were killed. People can react with
anger at the killing of so many innocent people and some blamed the Jews
rather than the Israeli state. When Israel ignores UN resolutions and
continues to build settlements on Palestinian land some people react
with fury, blaming Jews rather than Zionism. This dispute within Labour
is important, the language used is important, and has led to expulsions
from the Party.
But when the dust settles can
Labour Party members then get on to the topic of tackling those of its
members who put into effect policies that will kill children, and
principally Black & Asian children? The Party must no longer turn a
blind eye to such cruelty.
