Labour MP Under Pressure to Resign as Candidate.


[Pic source] Hopkins and Labour MP Danczuk clash over race relations in Rochdale

LABOUR MP for Rochdale Simon Danczuk is sensationally under pressure to become the second parliamentary candidate in a matter of days to resign as a Parliamentary candidate, TBG can reveal.

It follows a dramatic twist of events in the last few days that have seen him call both the Leader Ed Miliband and Deputy Harriet Harman "f***ing knobs", complain that his constituency has between 600 and 800 asylum seekers living there, and have a huge Twitter spat with businesswoman and media columnist Katie Hopkins

The controversial MP, who was at the side of Gillian Duffy during the 2010 General Election when she gave Gordon Brown a bit of her mind and is a close friend of the Labour councillor Richard Farnell who made sensationalised false allegations against TBG reporter Geoff Brooking in 2013 is even, according to one source, said to be suffering from "stress" already even though the General election Campaign doesn't start until Monday.

One Labour source told TBG that, "for a Labour MP to speak in such a tone of language is disgusting. This is not the end of the matter".

In an article for the New Statesman Danczuk also accused the Labour Leader of "being more of a toff than David Cameron" and of being "an electoral liability who fails to connect."

This afternoon it was reported that Danczuk had the bust up on Twitter with the broadcaster Katie Hopkins after she responded to a picture the Rochdale MP posted of himself with two friends and the flag of Pakistan.

Businesswoman and media columnist Hopkins, who appeared as a housemate on Celebrity Big Brother, hit out at the Danczuk's tweet but he posted back immediately, saying the businesswoman could ‘start a fight in an empty room’ and that he wouldn’t take ‘lessons in community cohesion’ from her.

Coming from an MP complaining about asylum seekers in his own constituency TBG smells double standards.

The online spat drew hundreds of re-tweets and was followed by thousands of Twitter users, who posted comments in support of them both.

Hopkins responded to the MP’s reply on community cohesion with the post: "Do NOT lecture me on community cohesion, fool."

He replied: "Why don’t you ask families of victims here what they think of my stance on this issue? Your racist generalisation doesn’t help."

Hopkins posted an image of men convicted of offences in relation to the grooming scandal, with the words: "Are these your friends too @SimonDanczuk? Is this why you are raising the Pakistani flag in Rochdale? 77 years inside."

He replied to her: "I know the damage these men did as I’ve sat with victims and supported them. Our community is healing and yr vitriol won’t stop this."

Hopkins posted: "Listen @SimonDanczuk - I’ll come to Rochdale, raise the British flag and explain why NO ONE messes with our white girls. Sod your PC tripe."

In a later post, Mr Danczuk added: "Rochdale has had its problems and no one has spoken on grooming more than me. But to equate every Pakistani with grooming is a racist slur."

Danczuk was also recently censured by the parliamentary authorities for late declarations of almost £20,000 in payments – the bulk of which are from his book exposing his Liberal predecessor Cyril Smith.
