To The Railings

On this centenary of working-class suffrage and of partial female re-enfranchisement, ignore anyone who purported to celebrate while failing to support the County Durham Teaching Assistants.

In the hung Parliament that is by far the most likely outcome of the next General Election, the price of my support for any Government would be the necessary support for a number of projects in each of the former District Wards equal to the former number of District Councillors, together with justice for the 472 Teaching Assistants whom Durham County Council has deprived of 23 per cent of their incomes.

Although I am generally supportive of Jeremy Corbyn, I am profoundly disappointed at his failure to exercise in relation to Labour’s Durham County Council and its Teaching Assistants the influence that he has exercised in relation to Labour’s Haringey Borough Council and its scheme for mass social and ethnic cleansing. Had he done as much in this case as I am very glad that he has done in that one, then the Teaching Assistants would already have won.

The Leader of Durham County Council, Simon Henig, was so afraid that I was going to be elected to that authority, that he faked a death threat against himself and dozens of other Councillors. Despite the complete lack of evidence, that matter is still being pursued by the Crown Prosecution Service as part of the attempt by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders, to secure a Labour seat in one or other House of Parliament. If I am wrong, then let Henig and Saunders sue me.

Stand against them. Stand with me.
