Belly-flopping Labour Mayoral candidate MARVIN ‘ME, MYSELF, I’ REES appears to have held on to the same high opinions of himself that failed to get him elected ahead of a dodgy millionaire architect in red trousers.
Rees, whose grand election strategy was spouting management jargon whilst cruising around in a chauffeur-driven car and letting a tedious Labour goon in Swindon run his Twitter account, has lately been trying to reinvent himself as a kind of elder statesman of Bristolian politics.
Judging by a recent tweet – from an account he now appears to be updating himself – he’s not quite got the hang of it: “At City Rd Baptist Church service about to read “I Have A Dream” speech (the whole thing). No pressure!!”
Seems Marvin ‘Luther’ Rees has finally given up on the ‘Obama Strategy’ and opted instead for the ‘Dr King Plan’.
This can only end well…
Your obsession with the ony two black peole with a high profile in Bristol politics smacks of racism.
The only ‘obsession’ we have is with bringing down a peg or two the self-important idiots who think they own this city – of all creeds, colours and genders.
Readers only have to look at the vast numbers of mentions of rich white middle-class men that we’ve smote over the issues to see the (party political?) absurdity of Pipa’s allegation.
After all, which other news outlet in Bristol has been investigating the accusations of institutional racism at City Academy? Did the Post or BBC Bristol send reporters down to the Tribunal hearings?
Pipa – Are you serious?! Hahahahaha! What a ridiculous thing to say.
Maybe, I’m missing something, but how is this post racist?
In some people’s eyes saying something negative about someone black is racist.
I am sure Bristol has changed since I was a postgraduate there 1997-2001.
Still the occasional whiff of police corruption…
Avon & Somerset were never that clean. Odd that Nick Gargan has not removed innocent folks DNA samples from database.
I can categorically state that Mr Long John Silver is a smiter of all of the High and Mighty – regardless of religion or ethnicity- and long may it be so…….
And as far as Gargan and the Gorgon are concerned, there are areas for closer examination …..
Quite frankly I’m disgusted. The irony that you condem Mr Rees for complaining about his character being besmirched during the last campaign in a blog that seems hell bent on besmirthcing his character is beyond parody. I can only assume that the faults that you so readily see in others simply reflects your psyche’s way of dealing with the shortcomings that you see in your own character.
I only hope that Marvin is given the chance by the electorate to demonstrate the man of great character that he is and that they will vote for him accordingly.
I also have to agree with Pipa’s conclusion above.
Thank you for contributing this pile of driveling wank. Is there an election on soon by any chance?
