I have followed Phil Woolas’s career with some interest, from the days when he was President of the National Union of Students, accusing people like me of anti-semitism, to when he was War on Want’s Director. I can honestly say that I can think of no more despicable a political creature than Woolas, who would sell his own granny if he thought it would get him elected.
He first began his parliamentary career accusing the Lib-Dem in a by-election of supporting smoking dope in a deliberate attempt to use their more liberal position on cannabis in order to whip up a climate of bigotry and hate.
He subsequently became a New Labour MP and prime opportunist for Oldham East. His opportunism was so obvious that it was embarrassing (except to him). As Immigration Minister he was in his element, more than happy to send refugees back to Iran or wherever else, regardless of the consequences, as long as it enhanced his reputation as a fierce antagonist of immigration.
So it was no surprise when Woolas, fearing defeat in the General Election, decided to employ racism against Muslims as a tactic to get re-elected and accuse his Lib-Dem opponent of being in bed with Islamic 'extremists' i.e. Muslims per se . It is therefore with utter delight that this racist scumbag has had his election victory in Oldham East and Saddleworth declared void. Let me add that I am not in favour, as a general principle, of judges removing elected persons from office. However I don’t believe this sets any precedent and in the case of Woolas, who is now pleading poverty, it was thoroughly deserved.
Of course Hattie Harman, in sticking the knife in by casting him adrift, is only behaving true to form. There was never any complaint when this gutter racist went about his work. But who am I to complain. By his own admission he set out to ‘make the white folks angry’. This from a Labour MP, a party which once called itself socialist and knew no division between Black and White, nakedly and openly fishing for the white racist vote.
I know many on the left may feel queasy at how Woolas was removed but I for one will drink a toast to his demise.

I'm so rry if the murdering little shitbag took offence. But there was no threat.
At least the little shit is now out of office.
I suggest you scumbags try catching rapists and murderers like instead of pandering to MPs who like to sound big but go ru nning at the first opportunity.\
The Met are particularlarly useless shits who protect the rich and powerful and attack the weak.\
So do me a favour and FUCK OFF

Subject: Wollas - you are a racist scumbag
Ms Blessing Felix is due to be deported on Flight VS 651 to Lagos at 10.20pm.
I realise that the deportation of people to their death or torture is important to you as a way of capturing the populist vote as you are a nakedly ambitious politician without an ounce of scruple but dont' be surprised if someday someone puts a bullet in the back of your ugly head.
