Hazel Blears Uses Illegal Immigrant On Her Campaign Team
How much better can it get?
Bigotgate, McCarthy breaking election laws yesterday, today the disaster that was Labour’s poster accompanied for once by a real, not metaphorical car crash; Aardvark is pleased to hear that no one was seriously hurt in the Golf and dustcart.
Saturday’s dose of joy comes in the form of one malevolent and avaricious house flipping ginger chipmunk also know as Hazel Blears.
Since being disgraced Blears has largely dropped off the national press radar, but thanks to the Salford Star Aardvark has been able to keep an eye on the Blears.
At the start of the campaign the Salford Star has this to say:
At a stormy public Question Time at Salford Arts Theatre last night, Hazel Blears accused the media of lying about her during the expenses scandal. The Salford MP said “There’s an awful lot that’s been reported in the papers that is simply not true.”
Unfortunately Hazel didn’t mention all the stuff that was true… over £8000 on furniture, over £50,000 on mortgage payments, over £1000 on fees for personal tax returns, over £200 on bath towels and over £1000 on food when Parliament wasn’t even sitting.
Then there was more bad press as Blears husband milked Salford Hospital for £80K as the hospital has to shed 750 jobs.
In a breaking news story Blears following the example of the Attorney General has been caught with an illegal immigrant on her campaign team.

Since Aardvark posted this The Sun have published more on the story:
EX-CABINET minister Hazel Blears dealt Labour another election blow last night as she admitted using an illegal immigrant on her campaign team.
Nigerian Rhoda Sulaimon has been knocking on doors alongside the MP in Salford, Gtr Manchester, to help defend a 7,945 majority.
But The Sun can reveal she is in Britain illegally and faces deportation.
The revelation will heap fresh embarrassment on party chiefs already on the rack over their open-door immigration policy following Gordon Brown’s Rochdale “bigot” jibe.
Last night a Labour campaign source said: “Rhoda has been working voluntarily for Hazel Blears in the hope it might help her case.
“She doesn’t want to go back to Nigeria and is desperate to stay here. She’s been helping out for weeks at the local campaign office and has been out with Hazel when she meets people and goes out leafleting.”
Rhoda came to Britain on a student visa five years ago but overstayed after having her daughter, now four.
Home Office immigration officials served her notice on April 16 that she had 30 days to report for deportation – an order imposed only after all appeals have been exhausted.
But yesterday she was still working at Mrs Blears’ Labour campaign office.
The Sun famous for it’s headlines has in this instance by out headlined by Iain Dale’s post The Sun Guns for The Chipmunk H/T to Iain
