Snipe - The Scoop

Exposed

I missed this at the time, but apparently the BNP have rumbled me:

Dammit Robert Bailey, leader of Barking and Dagenham BNP, you've gone and caught me out.
 
All this time I've been posing as this man over here and all along I've secretly been long-time Barking and Dagenham councillor Val Rush. Who would have known?

I must say, for a middle-aged East London councillor you do a very good impression of a large youngish bloke who likes a pint. RADA training?

It's all in the makeup.

Helen said...

He's sharp as a knife, that Robert Bailey - maybe he ought to chair the MPA?

D-Notice said...

I thought "Val" was only your weekend name?

Anonymous said...

Well its all down to distraction and deception?

Strange one that.

"I thought "Val" was only your weekend name?"

No. Weekday evenings too.

I too masquarde as a woman. I do this in the tradition of British pantomime and as an actor.

Sometimes, if I stare at myself in the mirror I believe I really am a ladie's front bottom.

Helen said...

Don't be silly, women don't drink pints of beer.

Kirklees Unity said...

Isn't Adam Bienkov an anagram of Val Rush??

Probably if Barnbrook is doing the spelling...

Tom said...

Steady on, I like ladies' front bottoms. Much more attractive than thick neo-Nazis in any light.

Never mind about all that. I clicked on this blog - in good faith - under the impression that 'Tory Troll' was the pseudonym for some Conservative supporter with a healthy sense of irony, and since I recently attended a surgery held by my own MP, Parmjit Dhanda, little dreaming that instead of hearing and heeding my concerns about the locked down nature of his website, I would be subjected to a glaring Dhanda demanding why I deserved to be answered at *all*, I thought a 'Tory Troll' might have some insights into New Labour blowhards (blimey, if I'd put a question mark on the end of that sentence, it would have been pure Naughtie).

Instead, I apparently find a labour supporter bashing conservative politicians in a manner which, if Dhanda had been the target instead, would have had him threatening 'consequences' when he finally got the chance to browbeat his 'stalker' in person (not through email or on paper, of course, where comments have to be backed up with facts).

Or maybe I'm wrong, and the blogger really *is* a Tory who just happens to have set himself to lambasting Johnson. I wouldn't have thought BJ would be the best candidate for trolling, as he doesn't seem to take himself all that seriously, but everyone must follow their dream...

Joe said...

Soz If I posted that more than once. State of the 'net today, tchh, I dunno...

The Troll said...

Forgive me 'joe' if I don't bother fully engaging on this issue with somebody using an inaccessible blogger profile from behind a proxy server.

I will say that I am neither a Labour, Conservative, or a BNP supporter though. As for your problems with Mr. Dhanda - maybe you should take them up with him.

Joe said...

I don't send comments to blogs very much, 'troll', so I don't have a lot of interest in how my details are displayed. I don't consider myself a blogger, so my 'blogger profile' wouldn't be very informative anyway. If yuo mean by a 'proxy server' that I have a Googlemail address, I probably ended up using that one when my AOL one stopped working on the http://www.parmjitdhanda.co.uk/ site, so blame his staff for that.

The surgery I referred to above would have been me 'taking them up with him' (his problems, though, not mine). That only served to make clear just how desperate he was to quell criticism after letting down his constituency over several local issues. The only thing that will *really* help is if people come to realise how doggedly restrictive the site staff (specifially, I guess, Matthew Gilson) have become about critical comments, and shame them into behaving in a less paranoid manner.

If you think I'm a little anonymous, by the way, feel free to peruse my postings on http://www.visit-gloucestershire.co.uk/boards, under the name 'Joker'.
