The Labour Party, which has long used a number of third party front organisations to attack the British National Party in a blatant disregard of the democratic process, has been hit by its own tactics with the distribution of a 12-page magazine in Barking devoted to exposing sitting MP Margaret Hodge.
The magazine, called the Barking and Dagenham Sentinel, is a full colour publication which details sex, cash and personality scandals which reveal the MP as unfit to hold office.
“The BNP has long been the victim of these third party campaigns and it seems that the Labour Party is getting some of its own medicine back,” said BNP leader Nick Griffin, who is fighting Ms Hodge’s seat.
“This magazine has been produced by a loose coalition of non-BNP people,” Mr Griffin said.
The magazine, currently being distributed in the Barking constituency, discusses how Ms Hodge was a “loony leftist” who, during her tenure as council leader in 1982, flew the red flag over the town hall and had a bust of Lenin on her desk.
In addition, the magazine says, she ignored repeated requests from social workers to do something about the sexual abuse of children in Islington Council Care.
The magazine also details Ms Hodge’s parliamentary expenses claims. The MP, who is the richest woman in Parliament with a £50 million personal fortune, claimed for organic coffee and biscuits — and even a 25 pence carrier bag — from the taxpayers as part of her expenses.
