The appalling Esther Pickup-Keller – wife of the equally appalling Derek Pickup, the city’s education boss with the shady past in the council’s community grants department – has discovered a new gravy train to her liking.

Pickup-Keller currently picks up a salary not unadjacent to £50k a year for doing a complete non-job in the city’s hopelessly failing education department run by her husband.

As the city’s ‘Attendance and Behaviour Consultant’, diversity obssessive Esther spends her days producing pointless anti-homophobic policy documents and organising ‘Tackling Islamophobia’ working groups while actual attendance and behaviour in Bristol’s schools crashes to new lows year-on-year.

And so busy is Esther on our behalf that she also finds plenty of time to be an active member of the Labour Party. She was last seen acting as an agent at last year’s council elections for their Lawrence Hill candidate, the notorious Busharat Ali, the Photoshop faker. On whose behalf Esther published fake photographs to try and con the electorate in to voting for him.

Managing to obtain a national profile for being a dishonest little shit is obviously considered good form in the Labour Party. For now news leaks of Esther’s next career move:

At the GC on Friday people will be asked about MEP selections etc.
Unfortunately I cannot be at the meeting myself, as I am visiting my parents in Holland, who celebrate special birthdays this month.
However I would just like to let you know that I am interested in being on the South West list as a Labour Party candidate for the European Parliament. If any of you would like to talk to me about that, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
My mobile number is 078xxxxx427.

    Nice one!

    One would have thought that after the photoshop caper she’d have wanted to keep her head well down… still, if she wants to put it in the firing line…

    …keep shooting!

    This wouldn’t be the same agent who threatened lagal action against opponents for exposing what was going on was it. This couldn’t have been the same campaign in which the Labour candidate was flytipping and posing in photographs on his literature complaining about Lib Dem rubbish or the same campaign when businesses who had been getting rid of their commercial waste by street dunping were told that they were being picked on and told to put up Labour posters….

    ……or the same campaign where Somali traders who put up Lib Dem posters got visited by Busharat and his cronies who tore the posters down and threatened them?
