The Communist Searchlight organisation (which lists formal representatives from the Conservative, Labour, Lib-Dem and Plaid parties as vice-presidents) apparently launched their European Election campaign in Rhyl, North Wales recently.
Following reports from well placed informants within the extremist far-left group that ‘something big’ was being planned, our local news reporters were on hand to photograph and record the exciting events in Rhyl town centre for posterity.
The campaign launch, which seemed to involve just two rather grubby looking individuals from Searchlight with their Red Flag and Hammer and Sickle trying to sell copies of the ‘Morning Star’, was conspicuous by the absence of their colleagues Mark Isherwood AM (Conservatives), Leanne Wood AM (Plaid), Mike German AM (Lib-Dems) and Huw Lewis AM (Labour), as well as by the absence of their president, Plaids’ Dafydd Ellis Thomas (Leader of the Welsh Assembly).
This was very disappointing for our reporters who were hoping to catch a glimpse of these celebrities attending such an auspicious occasion - if only to show their support publicly for the organisation their parties are formally associated with, and which after all is used by them to produce third-party smear leaflet campaigns against opponents standing in democratic elections.
Sadly, it was all over in less than an hour after it began, and as the massed horde of two outdated and redundant far-left stooges drifted away into the distance, they at least managed to leave their trademark mess of litter on a park bench behind them.
