Labour Party For Sale on Ebay

I just had the weird experience of visiting LabourHome (which, I have to say is getting increasingly weird) and seeing an advert for Ebay which read: VISIT EBAY AND BUY THE LABOUR PARTY. And there's me thinking all you had to do was visit Number Ten...

But are they offering bargain basement prices on peerages?

Just been but couldn't see the party itself. Maybe it's been removed. Lots of exciting 2nd hand books on Labour party history *yawn*. The sort of quality stuff Iain has in his shop at ten times the price.

Have just visited it for the first time - the first thing that struck me was the site highlighting a piece in the Sunday Times suggesting that Labour was going to depict Cameron as a dodgy estate agent! How funny that seems now! It states "An advertising agency is expected to be hired to draw up a cartoon image of Cameron brandishing a phoney “for sale” sign."

After this post, and in particular the whole Lord Cashpoint crisis it seems that this will fall as flat as the Chameleon!

I have just popped over to labourHome and the my experience was even worse.

There was an Ad in the sidebar for "London Labour Hire".

Apparently you can click on the link to hire Labour for building projects throughout London. No job is too small apparently.

I hope they have improved since The Dome !

Andrew, I think ConservativeHome has something similar, they are offering people a chance to get smashed in the London Mayor elections... no previous political experience necessary, knowledge of the Conservative Party desirable but not essential.

Hope not. They did the crime and should do the time. If my former colleague Jeff Skilling can do 30 years so can they

Sorry to burst your bubble, but we have already been assigned to several Euroregions, and progress towards the Anschluss is already well advanced. Just google "Common Purpose" AND ODPM or see eutruth.org.uk .

On the subject of the Labour Party for sale, they already have an owner, Satan, having sold their collective soul to his personal representatives in the UK (Peter Mandelson, Alistair Campbell and Cherie Blair).

Iain - would love to have a screenshot next time!

Iain Dale said...

I don't actually know how to do screenshots. Do tell me! I couldn't have done it on this anyway as it's one of those rolling adverts that change all the time.
