Manish Sood Worst Candidate in Labour's History?

ElectionOracle / UK General Election May 04, 2010 - 10:27 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Manish Sood an apparently delusional Labour candidate for the North West Norfolk parliamentary constituency launched an incomprehensible broad side attack against Gordon Brown and the Labour party barely 48 hours from the general election.


"I believe Gordon Brown has been the worst Prime Minister we have had in this country,"

"It is a disgrace and he owes an apology to the people and the Queen."

"All the policies he is bringing in are a total disaster,"

Sood has outdone both the Tories and Lib Dems in attacking Labour. Incredible, and illustrative of a Labour party in self destruct mode that offer such ridiculous caliber of candidates for potential Labour voters to vote for.

Whether you support Labour or not, Sood has exhibited -

  • total lack of loyalty for his party.
  • total lack of loyalty for his Leader.

Sood is the worst candidate in Labour's history, he is a disgrace and owes an apology to the Labour party and would be a total disaster if elected in North West Norfolk, though thankfully he has a ZERO chance of doing so.

2005 Result - Norfolk North West

  • Conservative 50%
  • Labour 31%
  • Lib Dem 15%
  • Others 4%

Also earlier in the day, right from Gordon Brown downwards, senior Labour officials had been lining up to suggest that voters should vote tactically -

Gordon Brown Stated : "Look at the Constituency in which you are in and find out that the contest is between Labour and the Conservatives and don't allow a Liberal vote by chance to put a Conservative candidate in."

Tessa Jowell: If you are some body who fears the prospects of a Tory government they the Daily Mirror have told you in certain parts of the country how you can use your vote (referring to the Daily Mirror guide to tactical voting).

Peter Hain: I think it's important for people to act intelligently in this election. It was in the 100 or so Labour-Conservative battlegrounds where it would be decided which party won a majority - and the two parties were "very close together in the number of seats - that is to say the number of MP's in the next Parliament". He urged Lib Dems, Greens and Plaid Cymru supporters to back Labour.

Edd Balls: "I always want the Labour candidate to win, but I recognise there's an issue in places like North Norfolk, where my family live, where (Lib Dem) Norman Lamb is fighting the Tories, who are in second place. And I want to keep the Tories out."

Tactical voting by third parties to keep out the most disliked party out of power which implies an overall boost for Labour as Liberal Democrats in close main party seats vote to keep out Conservative MP's. Reuters in Survey of marginal constituencies over the weekend revealed that only 1 in 10 voters will consider voting tactically, which could influence the outcome of at least 40 seats. Off course not all Liberal Democrats would vote for Labour to keep out a Conservative MP therefore the impact of tactical voting comes down to a constituency by constituency basis.
