Timbo the Terrier

More tails from the campaign.

Over in Picton, Labour's Tim Beaumont's poster campaign is hotting up.

Timbo must have been chasing his own tail after he managed to get a second poster up in a shop window. Unfortunately in his excitement he obviously didn't notice that both his posters are promoting Liam the Lurcher.

His campaign (apparently run by my blogging nemesis The Bulldog) has failed to make him a household name in Picton, and it appears he isn't even a household name among his own campaign team!

Unfortunately, incorrect imprints are the least of Tim's sins.

Tune in next time kids for the next instalment on Timbo the Terrier!

Lots of doggie love,
Dude

Hello Dude. Just what have you got against the Bulldog?

Don't get me started on that poisonous creature.

Bulldogs are a fine breed, but this one is quite clearly the runt of the litter.

Is that why you virtually copied and pasted one of her posts then?

No, I'm not one of the local Labour Party btw, before the accusation arrives. I have never been a member of any political party, and if anything am exactly the sort of disaffected former labour voter that the Lib Dems should be hoping to pick up, except that I currently feel so hacked off by the negative campaigning on all sides that I'm more likely to go and deliberately spoil my ballot as a protest....

Hello anonymous,

If you can't tell the difference between satire and negative campaigning, then you shouldn't read my blog.

I know I can be a bit of a cheeky terrier at times, but I am always friendly, never vicious. Even now, my tail is still wagging.

If you read the Bullog blog properly, or any of the local Labour party run blogs, such as subculture,you would realist what negative campaigning is. Or just read any Labour leaflet from this election. No vision, just abuse.

Anonymous, if you have so little sense of humour that you think Dude's p-take of the Bulldog is negative campaigning, what are you doing here having a political argument with a dog?

Anderson is Mr Potatohead? Baldock is "the runt of the litter" and "that poisonous creature"? [Smacks head] Of course! It's just satire, not an [i]ad hominem[/i] attack at all! Not remotely vicious...

What am I doing arguing with a dog? Err, actually that's a good question, especially as of course there's no way I can vote for one either. What we need is representation for canines, one bark one vote, although yappy ones like chihuahaus will only be allowed half a vote as they are so small and bark so often that it will even out anyway. Cats can become the new oppressed minority as something as selfish as a cat could only be a Tory in any case.

Personally I think it's all about Baldock's stance on Dog Wardens myself, and no doubt you will be heroically campaigning against any proposals that might mean fellow canines (such as the three legged one occasionally spotted on Middle Way) are falsely accused of being ownerless when in fact they are performing the vital service of providing humans with something to feel sympathetic about.

You want to start looking at Labour before you start going on about negative campaigning.

From abusive name calling by Cllr Anderson in the council chamber, personal abuse on Bladock's blog (who appears to hated more by her own party than by the Lib Dems) or the libellous and abusive subculture blog run from 108 Prescot Road (but with no imprint because they realise that anyone who accepted responsibility for it would be sued)!

You want to have a look at that before making accusations against Dude.

Personally I think it's the funniest thing to appear on the internet this year!

Hang on, did I not say "the negative campaigning on all sides"? I think I did... just because one side does it doesn't mean that all should pitch in, that's what makes people like me (who have made a point of voting in every election possible for most of the last 20 years) feel like not bothering. Oh, and as a veggie I must protest at the partisanship towards meat eaters shown by the continued references to Phil Moffat's sausages. I don't want to have anything to do with his sausage, wherever it's from....

Dude the Dog said...

Dear Anonymous,

I am sorry if my meat eating offends you, but have you ever met a dog who chooses a vegetarian lifestyle?

I am very glad you are a veggie, it leaves more sausages for me.

I hope you are not one of these dog owners who try and make their dog be a vegetarian? After all, we don't try and make our owners sniff each others bottoms in the street!

Oh dear, what is the obsession with Cllr Moffatt and his sausage? Is this post from Cllr Bailey??? We all know what she's like!

we are cats and we want to object to the implication that we are Tories - we are two Lib Dem felines who like nothing more than "helping" with clerical tasks.

I know and like Tim Beaumont but can't stand labour. I even voted lib dem last time. But these ridiculous personal attacks have persuaded me that I should vote labour just to register my sadness that this is what politics has come to. And from liberals too...
