After some 6 weeks touring and visiting some of the most deprived areas of the Peoples Republic of S.Wales and some areas of England its good to be back at my keyboard.
The 24 hour news cycle determines that important issues, bad as they may be, are soon replaced and forgotten. This allows members of the Establishment, when have done despicable things, to make a quick conciliatory press release then lie low for a while to brazen it out in the certainly that their ill deeds will be forgotten and then its back to business as usual.
This appears to be the case with the taxpayer looting and uber socialist hypocrite Linda Riordan.
Just to remind ourselves of the issue surrounding this harpy. She is the Labour and Cooperative Party Member of Parliament for Halifax who was not on merit but from an all women shortlist.
She is from the hard left and is a member of the Socialist Campaign Group which was set up to rival the already far left Tribune Group, who apparently were not left wing enough.
Linda Riordan is joined in this cabal of lefties by racist hypocrite Diane Abbot who sees everything through skin colour and who gives her son an elitist education that she denies everyone else. Also in this gang is left wing hippy and Morning Star contributor Jeremy Corbyn together with the burned out old dinosaur and loudmouth Dennis Skinner.
Linda Riordan ticks all the boxes for Red Ed Miliband's future Parliamentary Labour Party in that she is, first and foremost, a woman. Apart from her gender she was a Labour councillor and the private secretary for the former member for Halifax. In other words she has no experience in the real world of industry, business or wealth creation. She is from the hard left so she is a redistributionist ideologue and an authoritarian to boot.
Linda Riordan signed up to congratulate the communist tyrant Hugo Chavez on his election victory in Venezuela. Her and her fellow Chavez supporters claim the election was free and fair, after all they point out Jimmy Carter said it was. Chavez's re-election was also welcomed by fellow communists Jose Manual Barrosso and Herman von Rumpoy on behalf of the European Union.
That would be the same European Union that has replaced the democratically elected governments of Greece and Italy with their own technocrats and who refuse to recognise the results of referendums if they don't like the result.
During the Venezuelan election campaign Linda Riordan's hero Chavez closed down the privately owned television companies and radio stations forcing those that remained to broadcast hours of his speeches while denying opposition candidates any air time.
Chavez also closed down opposition newspapers, he jailed and tortured opposition candidates and is violently anti Semitic. Chavez finances terrorists and considers that other blood soaked despot, Iran's president Ahmadinajad, a brother.
Chavez has seized almost 200 private businesses and is implicated in drug running on behalf of the Colombian drug cartels.
Linda Riordan supports Chavez's disastrous socialist economic policies that have led to food shortages and rationing in an oil rich country.
One would think that with her dedication to the communist cause, Linda Riordan would idolise the working class and one would think that her life would be devoted to supporting the working class and ensuring they keep the fruits of their labour.
If you think this would be the case then you couldn't be more wrong. Linda Riordan has nothing but contempt for the working class or her constituents in Halifax or their hard earned money.
As a hard left socialist she believes that the wealth of nation should be confiscated by the government and redistributed as they see fit.
That includes redistributing wealth from the pockets of her constituents into her own.
Linda Riordan has a house in her constituency and is also buying a taxpayer subsidised flat in London which would be out of reach for most of her constituents or any other working class people for that matter.
To any other decent person that would suffice but not Riordan. To supplement her generous salary, allowance and expenses package she rents out this London flat to Iain McKenzie, a fellow Labour MP at a profit and he claims this rent back off the taxpayer.
To rub the people's noses further into the dirt she then claims further accommodation allowance for herself payed for again by the taxpayer.
In a final money grubbing act of contempt for the people of Halifax and Great Britain, Linda Riordan employs her partner as a 'Senior Researcher' on an eye watering 42,000 pounds per year funded of course by us mugs, the taxpayers.
Also one would think that having been caught stuffing her and her partners' pockets with taxpayers money she would show some remorse and issue an apology. Again you would be wrong. In a typical piece of arrogance she demonstrates her sense of entitlement by issuing the standard press release with the usual worn out justification that it was 'within the rules'.
Typically, as ever by a Labour party MP immersed in the Mandelson, Gould, Campbell cult of spin, she is more concerned with the political fallout than contrition by stating that although it was "within the rules she is worried about the perception of her constituents and the wider general public."
The perception of her constituents and the public in general is that Linda Riordan is a common thief and a money grubbing socialist hypocrite who has no respect for her constituents or the taxpayers of this country.
Imposing her socialist ideology on the people of Great Britain is her mission in life and I implore the abused people of Halifax to do the decent thing and deselect the harpy.
Demonstrate to us all that you are not fodder to be used and abused to fulfil someone elses' political ambition.
