The Miliband kid is back in town .. so prepare yourselves for a week of “we love you David” stories in the Shields Gazette Labour Gazetteer.
Bloggers will have noticed that every time the ‘King Street Shopaholic’, Foreign Secretary and MP for South Shields, David Miliband visits the town his every move is followed by a reporter from the Gazette.
Mr Monkey reckons it won’t be long before Papa John Szymanski, the alleged editor of the local snooze paper instructs his reporters to carry a roll of loo paper with them when accompanying Mr Miliband so that they can wipe his arse when he shits.
If previous visits are anything to go by, we’ll see an article in today’s Gazette followed by a series of others all next week, even though his visit lasted less than 24 hours.
The theme of all the Gazette stories will be the same – Labour party spin and there will be lots of happy stage managed photographs which will no doubt feature a few local Labour desperadoes councillors who by coincidence are up for re-election in 2010 – look out for Bilbo Baggins, aka councillor John Anglin.
Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether a general election is just around the corner given Milband’s increasing presence in his constituency and wonders whether he’ll declare the apparent use of government machinery for electioneering purposes on his election expenses return?
