BBC Monitoring

is allegedly at risk of closure by government spending cuts, says His Master's Voice (so it must be true).  Its story is based upon a press release from Cllr Bet Tickner (Conservative, Abbey ward) who worked there for 31 years.  She did indeed, and for 13 of those years I worked there too, and never discerned any professional competence on the part of Ms Tickner.  But it would be wrong to close the place.  Just spend the money where it should be spent.  But that's always the right thing to do.

anon 1327 yes of course I know what party selected her, that does not mean she was not working for a Tory victory, it was well known that she was

anon 2156 I was aware of the story, where have you been lately, I just thought it was interesting that HMV chose not to report it other than to copy a press release from Tory Tickner

Can you tell us exactly how much money you got from Labour Friends of Israel while you were pretending to be Reading MP? How much did it cost to buy you?

You have no shame, have you Jane?

Also she's in Caversham most of the time ;)

Is it because she lives there anyway? True, one bumps into her or her bike frequently in and around the shops. No sign of her in Abbey during the campaign. Looked like she couldn't give a morsel whether she was going to be re-elected or not! Even bid farewell at meetings. TP as he is known to friends spent his free Saturdays doing all the walk and talk for her, in a way only he can, if you get the drift. Nice one Bet if you can get it!Hahaha

Jane, your reply above just about sums you up ("where did Labour Friends of Israel come from? I was a member of that for many years - so what?")

It's a bit like saying "I was a member of the Nazi party for many years, so what?"

It matters because it shows that you have no principles of scruples of any kind, in that you think that being a stooge for a racist apartheid state doesn't really matter. You were supposed to represent your Reading constituents, not lobby for a foreign state. It used to be called treason, and the penalty used to be the gallows.

And you haven 't answered my question: How much did did the Israeli government (aka Labour Friends of Israel pay for you?

I suppose we should be thankful for small mercies: you're so inept and incompetent that you couldn't have done the apartheid state of Israel much good.
