Radio Ga-Ga.


Ben Howlett has attacked Dennis Skinner's record in East Midlands.

Ben met with members of Conservative Future and the Conservative Women's
Organisation from the East Midlands yesterday finding out how CF can
reinvigorate activism and build a strong, diverse presence in the East Midlands.

Radio Mansfield, who have a strong listenership in Labour heartland seats
including Mansfield, Ashfield, Bassetlaw and Bolsover, asked Ben for an interview
about how to get more young people active in Labour heartland areas. Howlett has experience of campaigning in difficult to win seats in the North East and used
the opportunity to attack Labour's appauling record on the economy, unemployment
and the public sector.

Ben said: "With Dennis Skinner's seat only a few miles away from Mansfield in Bolsover, I hope this will send a message to Labour heartlands that the Conservative Party has changed to become younger and more willing to attack the Labour record on their home turf.

CF in the East Midlands works all year round to give the electorate an
alternative to Labour and they need to be recognised for their hard work and
achievements. I promise to support all hard working branches across the country
and recognise that with a CF awards scheme for excellence. CF branches without
a Conservative MP must be given the support that they deserve. I hope to make
CF an organisation of the majority and not the few again"

Conservative Womens Organisation has an event coming up this month. tBg has the flyer below for all those interested in going to an event full of Tory ladies. :)

Can we hear the interview? of course we can't because he got pounded and the phone in after was amazing, the number of comment's saying he was not suitable to for politic's, old Tory etc etc and he continued in his Praise of Gerry Adams!

tBg is trying to get hold of the audio. However it seems radio Mansfield are not such a professional bunch.

Sure Howlett is asking them to hold it, under the threat of legal action.

'...how to get more young people active in Labour heartland areas'

seems a very relevant and worthwhile aim and a lot more useful to keeping us in power than puerile smears from anon posters which will certainly not encourage more young people to be active in politics (which is essential for many North/North-East seats which will be vital if we are to win an outright majority in 2015) When I originally saw this blog I would have bet my mortgage that within minutes there would be anon smears and comments.... Guys - Surely we can do better than this??

Ben Howlett said...

Thanks for the idea of a phone in, sadly Radio Mansfield didn't have one on this instance, I will ask for one next time! Cheers for the advice!

theBlueGuerilla. said...

Agreed Michael. If anything, at the very least we could show a united front when it comes to attacking Labour heartlands.

We all know why East midlands don't like Ben! Maybe he should pay them that money and no try and smear them.

I actually pity some of the people who feel the need to post on this blog and elsewhere without having the guts to use their own name. Is your hatred of the Chairman candidates really that strong? Does the CF Election really matter that much to you?

Pathetic.

@John Moorcraft, I don't have hatred for anybody, I just can't stand Ben Howlett and the way he goes about things. It's outrageous, the lies, e-mails and smears he put's out 24/7.

@Anon 3:15pm - What emails are these? tBg would love to see them!

Ben Howlett said...

@anon 3.15 and theBlueGuerilla
cc. me in to them too as I would like to see them as well. ben@benhowlett.com
Cheers

Emails? Lies? Smears?

Put up or shut up. I am sure TB or TBG would happily publish any proof any of you can provide...

In the meantime, let’s get back to a sensible debate shall we

Michael Hewlett said...

anon @ 3.15pm. The onus is very much on you to substantiate your earlier claims regarding emails ideally using your own name. Although sniping from the sidelines is far easier under the cloak of anon. If you are going to accuse candidates of sending emails then you will have to now 'put up or shut up'!!

Anonymous said...

Oh dear, seems the claims from one camp that another camp is playing nasty have taken in another unsuspecting innocent.

Why all the nastiness people? Can't we all just get along and work towards keeping Labour out in 2015?

Anonymous said...

Same Anon as earlier- Ask TB for a copy of the Howlett team's e-mails to Aron Porter! Sure he will provide!

Anonymous said...

I would love to see those emails.

I wonder why no one's seen them though?

Oh wait, it's because they don't exist.

Caught telling "howlett's" again, on the original email, Howlett was cc'd! Yet again telling massive Howlett's when he claims not to have seen it!
