Jared Omara MP ..

nikki-red

We understand that this is an emotive subject, and discussing the facts is totally fine.
Posting insults is not.
Jared is local to us, and could well be a member of the forum, we dont allow name calling and insults on other threads and they arent acceptable on this one either.

Remind me when Labour last won in Sheffield Hallam.................

OK - I admit this is the first (& hopefully last)  and it amazes me too, tbh, even though I have my suspicions.

 

Irrespective of that slight diversion, I would still be interested to know how Mr.Omara got selected as the Labour candidate - with respect, if that's the best they can offer...............................

 

Mind you, it says even less of those who elected him.

Is it possible for O'Mara to get recalled? 

I don't know, but it would be interesting and useful to find out.

 

At the moment he is merely a well paid waste of Westminster space.

Strangely enough, just read the same, and you can't recall someone for not doing their job, unlike in the real world, where you can sack them if they are not up to it -- really, really strange - but not surprising.

I suspect he got selected because labour didn't expect to win Hallam in their wildest dreams and so wouldn't waste a good candidate on the seat.

It's not actually strange at all imo. Politicians simply aren't subject to the same general rules of employment as the rest of us.  They - more or less - make the rules up for themselves, same with pay and expenses.

You mean they have good candidates?🤔

Very true - and very worrying, whichever side you're on.

I'm never sure about that tbh. The public keep voting for these people so some, at least, aren't that worried about it - and it's not just the 'good' MPs either. Christopher Chope for instance keeps getting returned (since '97).

 

Always seems a bit like going shopping while wearing a blindfold to me.

The public voted for him in a election, if they're not happy maybe they should have bothered to actually look at who they were voting for.

 

Perhaps next time they will put some value in the vote they have.

I did - I certainly didn't vote for the 'gentleman',  because I had researched him, having never heard of him before, and also because he represented a party I have only ever once voted for in the 45 years I have had a vote - and that was a terrible mistake, we ended up with Tony Blair.
