EXCLUSIVE: Labour Try To No Platform UKIP, For Britain And D&V In Lewisham East
Kipper Central has learnt that the Labour Candidate in Lewisham East will NOT be attending the scheduled hustings on June 12th. Janet Daby issued a statement which was made available to all the candidates ahead of the hustings which takes place just two days before polling day on June 14th.
In the email, Ms Daby cites a “full diary” as the primary reason for her not attending. However, it continues:
“Janet will not share a platform with the far right parties who have been invited, urges the organisers not to provide them with this platform and urges fellow candidates not to give these far-right groups the oxygen of publicity by appearing with them on this platform.”
Furthermore, she goes onto question the legitimacy of the organisers, a local 38 Degrees group, in regards to its relationship to the national 38 Degrees organisation. The statement says that this leads Daby and Labour to “have doubts as to the impartiality of the organisation arranging these hustings”.
It is understood that by ‘far-right groupings’ Ms Daby means specifically UKIP, The For Britain Movement and the Democrats & Veterans Party. Furthermore, there is a rumour that Labour intends to send a ‘goon squad’ along to the hustings to disrupt them. At this moment in time, it is also understood that the Conservative candidate will not attend the hustings either so both the main parties are seemingly engaged in a conspiracy to strangle free speech in Lewisham East.
David Kurten, the UKIP candidate challenged Ms Daby to justify her decision:
Janet Daby’s excuse for refusing to attend the Lewisham East hustings is nonsense. She accuses three parties of being ‘far-right’, which today has become a phrase thrown out as a meaningless slur by leftists who have gone so far to the far-left that they are out of touch with the majority of the people. She does not specifically name myself or UKIP as being ‘far-right’ but it would seem that is her implication.
I would challenge her to name one policy or statement I have made which is ‘far-right’. She is unlikely to answer because she wouldn’t be able to – there are none. It is actually Labour that is acting more and more like fascists. Groups of fascist ‘anti-fascist’ thugs have grown up which are loosely attached to the Labour Party and do its bidding, by attempting to intimidate opposition parties and people with different opinions. Labour’s members and candidates regularly consort with Hamas and other Jew-hating Islamists, while it wants to restrict freedom of speech and introduce penalties for so-called ‘hate speech’ so that people who don’t agree with Labour’s insane Marxist politics are silenced.
It is hard to imagine a clearer demonstration of the establishment’s total contempt for free speech, the democratic process and indeed the electorate in Lewisham East. Labour in particular clearly feels it can act with impunity and without scrutiny. It is to be hoped that come June 14th the electorate remind them that is not the case and hit them where it hurts the most, at the ballot box.
