Rochdale Two Minutes Silence: Lib Dems Fight Dirty

Clearly the dirty dirty media manipulating bastardos paid by the tax payer to carry out Paul Rowen MP's every casework requirement are not paid to interfere on party political matters or indeed to protect the memory of scumbag asbestos-pants Sir Cyril or pants-on-fire Lord Norman Smith.

But Swish Tony condemnation of Cyril's asbestos cover up story does not end there. Scroll to the bottom half of Rochdale Online's exclusive where you'll see Dave Hennigan's lunking great helper Adam Power's dirty tricks campaign being discovered, overturned and publicized by Rochdale's finest.

Mr Lloyd’s intervention has also sparked fresh controversy after a member of the Rochdale Liberal Democrats' communication team tried to stop the Manchester MP from being heard.

Senior figures in Rochdale Labour Party have angrily condemned Adam Power after he contacted Rochdale Online to advise that Mr Lloyd’s remarks be removed from a news story last week because they had not been authorised by Mr Lloyd's office and could therefore be libelous against the MP himself.

Mr Power also said that the MP was threatening legal action against the Rochdale Labour Party for issuing the comments and that this could implicate Rochdale Online for publishing them.

It has since been revealed that Mr Power's claims were totally incorrect. Mr Lloyd's comments were fully authorised and the MP has spoken angrily about the actions of the Lib Dems in trying to silence his views.

When contacted by Rochdale Online, Mr Lloyd's Parliamentary Office clarified that the comments were a verbatim account of those released by the MP.

“This is the worst case of media bullying I have ever seen,” said Rochdale’s Labour Parliamentary Candidate, Simon Danczuk.

“The wheels are falling off Paul Rowen’s spin team and they need to be brought under control. To be telling blatant lies with the aim of suppressing a story that is this important to the people of Rochdale is a disgrace. I hope the Liberal Democrats will recognise this and discipline [Mr] Power accordingly.”

So, that'll be the end of the matter? Apart from the complaint to the Commissioners that is? Read all about it.

Perhaps they should leave the libel threats to Norman Smith MBE. Looking at the photo posted on this blog a few weeks ago, he does a mean scrawl with a wax crayon quoting his solicitor with proper legal stuff.
