Very middle-class Barry started out in his native Scotland and wound up in the middle-class bubble in North London. He is a candidate for Brent North. He's a big expenses spender and doesn't always think things through...
In 2015, Barry Gardiner admitted that the push by the previous Labour government to encourage car-buyers to opt for diesel vehicles in a bid to save the planet was “wrong”, identifying that a “massive problem for public health” had been created.
And now they are literally punishing people who own Diesel cars - as advised by the experts and encouraged by the politicians...
Three weeks ago, Bristol City Council decided to ban all private diesel cars from the city centre during daytime, with effect from 2021
Today we learn that Bristol City Council is busily buying new diesel vans for its staff!!
The revelation comes at the same time the authority is planning to become the first in the UK to introduce a diesel car ban. Bristol Live understands the council is in the process of rolling out a new fleet of vehicles, which includes new diesel models.
Oh for a coherent sensible policy instead of the usual hysterical kneejerk reactions.
Barry has been on top form in this election campaign showing why in Parliament he is known as the Constant Gardner.
The second excruciating Andrew Neil interview Labour has had to go through took place last night, when Shadow Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner was shown up over Jeremy Corbyn’s blatant fibs to the electorate. Labour are banking on people not being bothered to read the 451 pages they produced. Unfortunately for them, Guido has…
With this and snapping at a journalist for mentioning anti-Semitism, Gardiner has not been having a good media round…
Barry Gardiner lost his cool this morning at the Labour Party’s event designed to move on the conversation to UK-US trade, when some reporters asked about Anti-Semitism. It’s not going to be brushed under the carpet that easily…
Still two weeks out...
After much anticipation, YouGov’s official 2019 general election MRP model is here. The model, which called 93% of seats correctly in 2017, currently shows the Conservatives on course for a sizable majority.
Were the election held tomorrow, the Tories would win 359 seats (42 more than they took in 2017) and 43% of the vote (around the same as last time). In terms of seats won, this would be the Conservatives’ best performance since 1987.
Meanwhile, Labour are set to lose 51 seats – falling from 262 seats in 2017 to 211 now – and taking 32% of the vote (a nine percentage point decrease). In terms of seats won this would be the party’s worst performance since 1983.
The Constant Gardner's reaction:
““For those who were thinking of voting Conservative, I hope this poll gives them great comfort, they sit back, they say ‘I don’t need to go out and vote on polling day because it’s wet and it’s windy’,”
Keep digging, Barry
