Where are they now?

Now why would this person be smiling?

If you can meet with triumph and disaster.
And treat those two impostors just the same."

True Brits will recognise those lines as coming from the poem "If", written by that great English poet and writer, Mr Rudyard Kippling.

Now for you and I and the majority of our fellow countrymen we have to learn how to deal with triumph and disaster. We have no choice. However in the rotating dictatorship of Labour and Tory governments there are people who can win. Even when they lose.

Now I am just going to give you a small example to show you what I mean.

Lets look at .............Oh I don't know. What about Baroness Maggie Jones? OK?

Baroness Maggie Jones was appointed to the House of Lords back in 2006 and has been Director of Policy and Public Affairs at UNISON, representing people who work in public services, the voluntary and private sectors. She has also spearheaded campaigns on food quality and nutritional standards and has practical experience of school meal issues.

So what did Baroness Maggie do to deserver her elevation to the peerage? Anyone? Thats right, she managed to turn the biggest Labour Majority in the Country into a crashing defeat for Labour when she was parachuted into Blaenau Gwent as their candidate for the 2005 elections. This, against the wishes of the local Labour Party and advice of senior Labour members.

She was soundly thrashed by a very Honorable and decent man called Peter Law who had resigned from the Labour Party in protest against this interloper and stood as an Independent and overturned a majority of 20,000 and finished up with a majority of 9,121 of his own. What a guy.

He said afterwards "This is what you get when you don't listen to the people".

Well Tony Blair is reported as cursing the Welsh and quickly soothed Maggie with promises of a new fur coat in 2006. An Ermine one to be precise.

We bow to you Baroness Maggie Jones - you deserve your place on the British National Party tumbrel of the future.

By a strange coincidence, Labour's Keith Bradley and Liberal Democrats' John Burnett and Brian Cotter who sadly lost their seats during the election were also ennobled that day.

Fortunately for these rejected politicians, "triumph and disaster" both have the same meaning. A place at the pig trough of Public Money that you and I pay for in taxes. Time to clear out these leeches. Vote B.N.P. in May.
