Bearded Labour: the case for the prosecution . . .

The Blogger is being accused of beardism in relation to claims regarding the Bristol Labour Party. Here is the case for the prosecution:

George Micklewright 1. George Micklewright
Former LABOUR leader Bristol City Council 1997 – 2002. Created £350m budget deficit. Most shameless act: closing Merrywood School after promising it would never happen. Strangely Bearded.

Peter Hammond2. Peter Hammond
Former LABOUR leader Bristol City Council 2004 – 2005. Created £20m deficit in social services, closed daycare services. Most shameless act: throwing a sickie to avoid presenting his own dodgy budget. Strangely Bearded.

Derek Pickup

3. Derek Pickup
LABOUR Executive Member for Education, Bristol City Council 2007. Creating more school places than children through a school rebuilding programme funded by long term debt (PFI). Most shameless act: rigging the presentation of GCSE results this summer by excluding english and maths results . Strangely Bearded.

The relationship between strange beards, Bristol Labour Party, disreputable behaviour and hopeless incompetence is clear for all to see. I rest my case m’lud.

    What about the strangely bearded, disreputably behaved and hopelessly incompetent Bristol Labour women, eh?

  2. Shawn says:

    There will always be a small minority that ruin the reputation for the majority of us. Look at Castro. He’s a lovely chap. No one would surely dispute that, would they? (Ahem..)

  3. Jozer says:

    There is a simple rational solution.

    They’re a bunch of tossers from the 1970’s.

  4. Robert Ham says:

    The issue is: are there similar instances of shameless, disreputable behaviour by clean-shaven Bristol Labour Party members? One can only wonder…

  5. Jeff says:

    My Dad always told me not to trust a man with a beard, or a woman, because they are hidding behind them and have something to hide!

    “All success is the success of the (Labour) cabinet, and must be presented as such. All failure is administrative failure and must be presented to the media by officers” George Mick. – 1998

  7. Bryan says:

    Totally agree with Jozer

  8. Robert says:

    Wouldn’t my daughter anywhere near the creepy B******ds

  9. George Micklewright says:

    Both allegations about me are untrue. There was no such financial deficit. I never said I could keep Merrywood School open, and I had no part in its closure. The decision was taken by an independent Council Education Committee at the demand of the Department for Education. I was not a member. But I still have a beard.
