Baby faced Joe Miller is destined to score the lowest number of votes ever, for a Conservative candidate in the history of Brighton Kemptown elections.
26 November 2019 – 6-7.30pm
I had the pleasure and good fortune to attend the Moulsecoomb School Education Hustings last night at the Moulsecoomb Primary School (MPS)
The Brexit Party candidate Graham Cushway, and the Green Party representative Hannah Clare, sitting in for MEP Alexandra Phillips (who was in Strasburg), were the first to arrive, followed by baby faced Conservative candidate Joe Miller who rocked up at 5.57pm, followed by the sitting MP for Brighton Kemptown, bad boy Lloyd Russell-Moyle (LRM) who made the hustings just in time, walking through the doors at approximately 5.59.55 seconds, with the last to arrive, 4 minutes late; Ben Thomas, the Lib Dem candidate.
At 6.05pm the panel were complete and sitting, with the chair, Craig Arden, from the National Education Union (NEU), kicking of proceeding, reminding the audience that this is an “Education Only” hustings.
“What will you do for the ‘Hands off Moulsecoomb’ campaign, if you become MP?
Joe Miller – Conservative Party
Having already ignited the wrath of the Moulsecoomb community by stating at a previous husting that MPS was failing it’s pupils, inexperienced Miller maintained his unfair and defiant stance, (causing a gasp of disbelief from the audience), when he repeated his mantra, “I think that the school should become an academy.”
“Well I think that the school should become an academy. I think for too long, (boos and jeers from the crowd), for too long the children at this school have been failed.”
‘How to lose an election and alienate your voters’ by Joe Miller!
“The outcomes for children is the most important thing,” he states, defiant in front of a hostile audience, passionate about rejecting the academy status currently being enforced upon them.
“Only academies will rise the standards,” he said against a further barrage of boos and jeers.
A stark difference to Labour Party’s Lloyd Russell-Moyle‘s (RLM) response, up next.
“I will continue to support you,” (which brought an immediate and rapturous round of applause from an audience fully aware of his support which has been shown since day one,) “I was at that public meeting we had here and actually I’m getting almost emotional thinking about it. It was a fantastic strength of feeling about the school here.”
Close to tears and filled with emotion, LRM was the first to articulate the feeling in the room towards Miller, “But I am actually quite surprised about Joe Miller, because the Conservative at the city council have taken a much more pragmatic approach to this. The Conservatives at the city council have decided to continue to support the parents in their ballot and they said they’ll support the parents on the outcome of that ballet. So I’m surprised that Joe has broken with his city councillors and decided to take a more extreme version that even the Conservatives in this city and I wonder if that’s because he’s had a phone call from head office in London saying that’s the position he has to take or not.”
With Miller shaking his head, LRM finished off, “But it’s rather bizarre!”
“You don’t mess with Moulsecoomb!”
Set to retain his position as the MP for Brighton Kemptown, LRM clearly understands the importance of following the community’s example, when it comes to community issues. He rightly stated, “You don’t mess with Mouslecoomb.”
LRM clearly recognized the level of passion and dedication in the Moulsecoomb community towards the academy threat, and as such is set to win the Brighton Kemptown Christmas General Election by a landslide.
The first to give his opinion on baby faced Miller’s statement, that MPS was failing it’s pupils, year 4 MPS teacher Mr Cumiskey said, “I find it highly offensive that you say we are failing our pupils.”
“I am disgusted by your comments towards our school and teaching staff. You are wrong.”
Hannah Clare – The Green Party
“I’ve worked in an academy and know how bad they are.”
Graham Cushway – Brexit Party
“It should be up to the parents who decide if it wants academisation.”
Ben Thomas – Lib Dems
“This is something new to me!”
Acknowledging the Lib Dems were responsible for bringing in academies while in coalition with the Tories, Ben continued, “We admitted we didn’t get everything right.”
Getting used to hearing that from Lib Dem politicians, I for one am reluctant to trust in a political party, who readily confess to getting things wrong in the past, but assuring us to get it right in the future.
Hannah Clare – The Green Party
“It won’t happen!”
Graham Cushway – Brexit Party
“The key is democracy. 96% are against and that’s the end of the matter.”
Lloyd Russell-Moyle – Labour Party
“Academies have not been proved to improve school performance.”
Joe Miller – Conservative Party
“It was Tony Blair who introduced academy and I praise him for it.”
Giving Miller credit where credit is due, and taking a leaf out of Prince Andrew’s book, Miller is standing firm in his belief that MPS is failing its pupils by reeling of a bagful of local statistics, compared nationally.
“So for example in the Key Stage One stats; Reading – 64% compared to 75% nationally. Writing – 49% compared to 69% nationally.”
Nasty party representative Miller wants the best for our pupils, but comes across as knowing better than the parents of MPS, as to how to get the best for the pupils.
With comments coming from the audience thick and fast, Warren Carter who’s on the MPS Governor Board and mentioned as one of the 100 most influential people in Brighton and Hove, said, “We’ve been financially crippled by the Tory government, and now you say academies is the answer.”
Mr Cumiskey shouts out, “tell him off, tell him off.”
“The issue of academies needs to be reviewed,” said Ben Thomas, to which Hannah Clare promised the Green’s would, “Increase funding by 4 billion a year.”
“Give Mouslecoomb a chance. Ofsted needs to give us a chance,” pleads a member from the audience.
“Personally I’m very offended by your arrogant,” Cumiskey slams Miller, “You’ve wound me up!”
“You are trying to get a reaction from us, so we’ll write about you.”
“You were out of order.”
Miller comes across as knowing best, as he babbles shit for 10 minutes.
Local councillor Daniel Yates corrects Miller for an incorrect statement that he was leader of the council when something or another, did or didn’t happen!!!
Here we have LRM making the important distinction that money makes anything a success, not academies.
- Academy + Money = Works
- Academy + No Money = Fails
Falling back into the mantra of any politician, LRM promises, “Labour will give £5.5 billion above the Tories into education.”
Special Education Needs (SEN)
Concern from the parents and staff towards the ability of an academy run school to address the high-end needs of their pupils, MPS head Teacher let it be known in no uncertain terms, “Moulsecoomb has a voice but it isn’t being heard.”
Hannah Clare, “Greens will scrap Ofsted”, “it’s a very binary system and it needs to go.”
With a passionate speech by LRM, banging the table to drive home his point, “Sometimes the things we promise in manifesto do come true.”
Bold promises and bold plans from LRM.
“We aim to get rid of poverty.”
“Ofsted changes measurements and we get punished,” says Warren Carter.
“Joe is digging a few holes here,”-“Get the facts of the situation,” says Hannah Clare
Drawing to a close, aware of the promise to Headmaster Mr Sutton to finish on time, and acknowledging MPS high level of SEN’s, the next question went to the very heart of the unique situation facing MPS.
Moulsecoomb has a higher than normal quota of special needs pupils; how will you ensure it continues?
“I’m not up to answering your question,” confesses Graham Cushway.
A former pupil of an academy stood up at the back of the room and said, “academies would dump SEN children to ensure their figures don’t look bad.”
LRM reminds us, “Private school don’t get Ofsted’ed.”
Talking about anxiety and depression treatment, Ben Thomas adds, “I can afford it, but many people cannot.”
Nasty Party provocateur Joe Miller causes further uproar from the audience when he said, “Labour politician,” pointing to LRM, “has jumped on it as a bandwagon.”
Having reached the end of his tether, “I’m leaving because of you and your rudeness,” shouted Mr Cumiskey, storming out of the hustings in disgust at Miller.
A member of the audience lambasted Miller further, “You’re telling us we are all wrong, and you’re right.”
“Shame on you,” shouts another member of the audience.
Coming to the last question of the night:
How will you stop pupils coming to school hungry and not properly clothed?
LRM – “Free school meals and stop poverty”; to which got a healthy round of applause.
Graham Cushway – “Reform Universal Credit.”
Joe Miller – “Cutting income tax and raising the national living wage to £10 an hour.”
Ben Thomas – “Free school meals.”
Hannah Clare – “Increase personal income.”
A member of the audience summed up, “The Brexit Party have no policies.”
And finally onto the last )and most important) question of the evening, Why should we vote for you?
Baby faced Joe Miller, “I say what I believe. I may be wrong.”
Warmonger Graham Cushway, “I know more how to wage war, than I do about education.”
Hanna Clare, “Alexandra is in Strasburg voting and can’t be here. She will work so hard for you.”
Ben Thomas, “Devolution will be key.”
LRM, “Its an election about the future of our country. Labour have done it before and will do it again. Labour will leave no child behind. Vote Labour for hope.”
The clear winner of the evening (by a landslide) was LRM. While the obvious loser was Joe Miller.
- LRM: For his support of MPS and as the sitting MP
- Hannah Clare: For her support of MPS
- Cushway: For being honest enough to admit he didn’t know enough
- Thomas: A poor performance, left on the margins
- Miller: Dug himself into a hole and alienated himself by his own arrogance
My prediction for the Brighton Kemptown Christmas general Election is that Lloyd Russell-Moyle will retain the Brighton Kemptown constituency with a landslide.
Baby faced and inexperienced Joe Miller will score the lowest number of votes of any Conservative candidate in a Brighton Kemptown general election.
Clearly out of this depth, Miller recounted a bizarre example of his experience of poverty, by telling us about the time he had to sleep in his mum’s bed when he was 12 years old, desperate to convince the audience that he was once poor.
As LRM mentioned at the start of the hustings, “it’s rather bizarre.”
MATT TAYLOR PULLS OUT OF BRIGHTON KEMPTOWN 2019 GENERAL ELECTION – EVEN BEFORE IT’S BEGUN!
Ex Royal Military Policeman and convicted stalker Matt Taylor, has pulled out of the Brighton Kemptown 2019 General Election, saying Facebook’s 30 day ban, is the final nail in his general election campaign.
Found guilty of breaking Facebook’s Community Standards, for sharing a video of maverick political Tommy Robinson walking and talking past the Houses of Parliament, Taylor despondently says, “all chances of waging a successful social media election campaign has been lost.”
“All chances of waging a successful social media election campaign has been lost.”
Unable to appeal, Taylor’s words land on deaf ears:
“I am the parliamentary candidate for the UK Moai King William IV Party in Brighton Kemptown and this ban prevents being from waging a political social media campaign in the General Election.
When I shared the footage of Tommy Robinson walking past the Houses of Parliament, I didn’t know that it went against Community Standards.
I’ve read and understand the Community Standards and don’t understand how posting footage of Tommy Robinson walking and talking is a violation of anything.
It was already posted on Facebook and was being freely shared. Facebook allowed it to be shared on their platform, but yet you’ve banned me for sharing it?
It doesn’t make sense, unless you received a malicious report from the Hoaxtead Research community, who made this report, specifically to sabotage my social media election campaign.
This really isn’t fair and I am the victim in this instance.”
Told by The Argus chief crime reporter Emily Walker that he has “no credibility”, Taylor’s public exposure, in equal measure with the other Brighton Kemptown candidates, took a nose-dive, after The Argus, (under the editorial-ship of Mike Gilson) omitted him from the list of candidates in the article, ‘General Election 2019: Who can I vote for in Brighton and Hove?’
The same happened to him in 2015, again under the editorial-ship of Mike Gilson.
The Final Nail in the Coffin – The Straw that broke the camel’s back – STOP THE METAPHORS PLEASE!
As this leaked email from Matt Taylor to his friend David Neilson reveals:
“I’m giving up on politics. I’ve had enough of banging my head against a brick wall.
I’ve got zero credibility mate and as such will never be taken seriously.
If Matt Taylor had no credibility, why has so much been done to silence him?
2015 General Election Campaign Sabotaged by a false arrest – Election campaign office forced to close-down
⦁ I never knew politics could be so dangerous
7 November 2019 – Omitted from the list of Brighton Kemptown parliamentary candidates in The Argus – Recalling the 2015 General Election when the editor of The Argus Mike Gilson did the same – Told by chief crime reporter Emily Walker that I’ve got “no credibility.”
8 November 2019 – Given a 30 day Facebook ban for sharing a video of Tommy Robinson walking and talking past the Houses of Parliament, preventing me from waging a successful social media election campaign.
“I’m tired of banging my head against a brick wall…”
Basing his assumptions of past experience, heart-crest-fallen Taylor predicts he’ll be excluded from all hustings and other election related events, which the other candidates would be invited to attend and participate.
“All I need to do now is tell John Wanoa the news….”
A GENERAL election predictor has forecast Lloyd Russell-Moyle would lose his 9000+ majority, to a 1000 vote deficit, giving the Conservatives the win, and losing his Brighton Kemptown constituency he’s held since 2017.
Easy come easy go.
At this early stage, it forecasts that Conservative Joe Miller will unseat Labour’s Lloyd Russell-Moyle by 1.8 per cent of the vote.
It predicts that both parties will take a lose vote share but Labour will be more affected, with the Greens, who did not stand in the last election, and Liberal Democrats taking large amounts of votes from Mr Russell-Moyle.
The Luckiest Boy in Parliament
Blissfully unaware he was the lucky recipient of a “progressive alliance” (or rather a secret deal done behind closed doors,) that guaranteed whoever the Labour candidate would be, he or she would win.
Interfering with democracy, both Green Party leader Caroline Lucas and Labour supremo Simon Burgess, make no secret that they took advantage of the machinations of democracy, to ensure Conservative Simon Kirby would lose his seat and secure a Labour victory.
Imagine the fury and disappointment when in 2015 Simon Kirby retained his constituency with a very marginal 690 majority.
I maintain that if my Brighton Kemptown 2015 General election campaign wasn’t sabotaged, Labour’s Nancy Platts would be the current Brighton Kemptown MP and Lloyd Russell-Moyle would still be a nobody.
“I could have, at best won the Brighton Kemptown 2015 General Election and at worse, enabled Labour’s candidate Nancy Platts to win the 2015 Brighton Kemptown election.”
I’ve written extenstively about the back room dealing between the Green, UKIP and Labour parties, chronicling their “Progressive Alliance.”
What makes it even more interesting is the response of Simon Burgess and lloyd Russell-Moyle.
I put it to them that they interferred with Democracy by conspiring together to ensure a Labour victory in the Brighton Kemptown constituency.
Their sole intention was to stop Simon Kirby from regaining the seat for a third time.
A Mr.X Investigation has concluded there was collusion to corrupt the course of democracy in the Brighton Kemptown 2017 General Election
“Go spend your days doing something productive rather than conspiracy rubbish.”
“I am genuinely not in a position to know the answer, or to enquire about an answer to your question.”
Lloyd Russell-Moyle accepts the numbers.
Responding to the prediction, Russell-Moyle said, “I think to be fair it’s probably the other way round with the Liberal Democrats [and Greens] but we’re looking at around those kinds of numbers.”
Labour’s Nancy Platts, the current leader of Brighton and Hove City Council, ran for the seat in 2015. She lost to the then incumbent MP, Conservative’s Simon Kirby, by 690 votes.
Davy Jones, the would-be Green candidate in the 2017 election was stood down by the party in a “progressive alliance” pact to unseat Mr Kirby in 2017.
Russell-Moyle, who gained the seat, said, “Many Greens after the 2015 election came up to me and Nancy and said they bitterly regretted not lending us their vote.
“With the number of people came up to us, we would have won that election.
“I don’t want Greens to lend us their vote, I want them to know as their MP I have done them proud and will continue to do them proud.
“There’s a real danger you will get Brexiteer who didn’t vote for ban on fur and will be more than happy to see us with some Trumpian deal.”
The predictor, which can be found at electoralcalculous.co.uk, also forecasts that the Green’s Caroline Lucas will increase her vote share in Brighton Pavilion and Labour’s Peter Kyle will defeat Conservative Robert Nemeth in Hove and Portslade.
Nationally, it forecasts the Conservatives will get a 96 majority at the election.
Councillor Joe Miller said: “The only poll that matters is on December 12, we’re determined to get Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven back on the road to a brighter future, and as such I am taking nothing for granted.
“Every vote for any other candidate other than myself in Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven will result in us coming closer to an anti-Semitic Corbyn government.
“As such I will be speaking to the residents who I am seeking support from so I can represent them properly in Parliament right up until 10pm on 12th December.
“Whilst I may not be a man to hold down the speaker, or pick up the mace; I am one to not hold people down from their ambitions and I will pick up on their issues and concerns.”
Public Opinion of Lloyd Russell-Moyle isn’t as forgiving.
Brighton’s Argus Omit Matt Taylor, due to No Credibility Claim
The Argus, Brighton’s premiere newspaper has omitted to mention Matt Taylor’s name in their list of parliamentary candidates for the Brighton Kemptown Christmas 2019 General Election.
Giving each candidate equal and fair publicity, Matt Taylor was dumped for the second time in three elections.
The Argus – Travesty of Democracy
Revealed by their cheif Crime Reporter Emily Walker, it was revealed “the problem” was that I had “no credibility,” with the editor of the Argus Mike Gilson and as such, will never get equal and fair publicitity as the other candidates.
I left the following comment, in the comment sections of The Argus article:
General Election 2019: Who can I vote for in Brighton and Hove?
As always The Argus has omitted the inclusion of me, Matt Taylor, leader of the UK Moai King William IV Party and candidate for the Brighton Kemptown constituency.
As you know I came last in the 2015 GE with 69 votes, following a sabotaged election campaign, reported at the time by The Argus.
Again, my 2019 General Election campaign has been sabotaged, with my 7th arrest in 2 years by Sussex police, and the seizure of my computer equipment worth £2000, preventing me from waging a successful social media election campaign.
The Argus feels I have zero credibility and as such, doesn’t warrant the equal publicity as the other candidates.
It happened in 2015, when I wasn’t invited to any Argus sponsored Hustings or events.
I wrote about it –
If my election wasn’t sabotaged and I was able to have my 90,000 leaflets delivered through every door in the Brighton Kemptown constituency, the protest vote alone would have got back my £500 deposit (let alone the 691 needed for Nancy Platts to beat Simon Kirby.)
I’ve got more credibility than The Argus likes to admit, which is why Sussex police have been throwing everything they have against me to sabotage my election campaign for the second time.
The article above predicts Lloyd Russell Moyles will lose by a 1000 votes. Only I can save him and secure a Labour Brighton Kemptown victory.
My name is Matt Taylor and I’m the leader of the UK Moai King William IV Party.

MY FUTURE VISION FOR BRIGHTON, KEMPTOWN AND PEACEHAVEN BY MATT TAYLOR
SUPPORT MY CAMPAIGN – WWW.PAYPAL.ME/MATTHEWTAYLORGB
A week ago Saturday, YouTube viewers on Hampstead hoax promoter Matt Taylor’s channel were treated to the spectacle of the Sussex police banging on Taylor’s door and attempting to arrest him.
Taylor refused them entry, and after a long and highly entertaining back-and-forth which included Taylor calling 999 and claiming “fake police” were attempting to “kidnap” him (shades of Neelu!), eventually a compromise was reached: he was to appear at the police station the following Monday, 23 September, at 5:00 p.m.
Monday came and went with no word from Taylor—unusual given his tendency to bleat publicly about his every fart and whistle—and while we heard a few rumours that he had been arrested, we could find no official confirmation, and thus refrained from reporting.
Pull the other one
On Tuesday, 24 September, Taylor posted a picture of the Storr on the Isle of Skye, claiming that he was in the “Scottish Highlands” and commenting, “Sussex police will never find me here, hehehe”.
Odd that he could somehow afford to flee Brighton for Scotland, when only a couple of days earlier he’d been telling the police he could not afford bus fare to the police station a couple of miles away, but whatever.
There followed a string of videos of ever-increasing bizarreness.
On 25 September, Taylor sang-boasted, “I’m free…to do what I want…any old time”, and “you will never catch me!”
In a second video released that day, billed as a “Matt Taylor Arrest Up-date”, he stated:
How can I put it delicately? I’m going to do everything in my powers to resist arrest, and as I have said, I had no intention of going up to the police station at 5:00 p.m.
So what happened was this, okay, I’ll tell you what happened. I was walking out of my house at 5:45 on Monday. An unmarked police car pulls up beside me and says, ‘Matthew Taylor, get in the car’.
And it doesn’t end with a talking police car.
According to Taylor, he fled the police on foot, and somehow managed to make his way to Scotland, with the police in hot pursuit. Fortunately for him, a passing alien spacecraft picked him up and flew him to the Moon. Yes, he really says this. No, he is not seven years old. We think.
In subsequent videos last week he alternately claimed to be hiding out from the Sussex police (and their talking vehicle) on the International Space Station, and then Antarctica. (He also posted a long shaggy-dog story about how he shit his pants whilst on a trip to Washington DC, and somehow managed to get into FBI headquarters and leave his soiled underpants in a toilet there. Aren’t you glad we watch these videos so you don’t have to?)
Finally, on Saturday, Taylor made a brief, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it confession: in a video titled “Sussex Police have sabotaged my election campaign, again!”, he claimed to be a victim of police corruption. Nothing new there, but…
“They misused their powers to sabotage my 2015 and 2019 election campaigns”, he says. And at 0:54, “In 2019 they arrested me for harassment—with intent of violence”.
Now we’re getting somewhere.
Given these titbits of information, it sounds as though Taylor was indeed arrested last week, probably under Section 4 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.
This is the charge on which Rupert Quaintance was found guilty in 2017, and consists of “a course of conduct which causes another to fear that violence will be used against him, and the defendant ought to know that his course of conduct will cause another to fear that violence will be used against them….”
Two further videos, posted to YouTube on Sunday, offer a bit more detail: “A charitable appeal to replace the IT equipment stolen by Sussex police” tells us…well, you get the picture.
Police, arrest, IT seized for examination. Taylor putting out the begging bowl. No mention of Scotland, aliens, the ISS, or Antarctica. [Or poo bombs, thank Christ—Ed.]
Curiously, at one point in this video, a devil’s head appears, glowing red eyes and all, behind the question, “Who is @laughingdevil1?”
According to Google, this is the name of a Twitter user who describes themselves thus: “Fighting Antisemitism. Investigative Journalist behind labour antisemitism map.”
What this has to do with Taylor’s arrest and tech confiscation, we do not know.
In a second video yesterday, titled “Matt Taylor Arrest Update #2“, Taylor returns to his Scotland/aliens/Moon/ISS/Antarctica story, and claims that it was “UK Callum who was feeding Sussex police my secret locations”:
Only God knows who this bloody UK Callum is, isn’t he, eh? He must be a police informant! He must be a special witness, I reckon.
Gosh, if we didn’t know better we might think that was a veiled reference to the Hampstead dad, who Taylor has accused of being associated with this blog. Wonder why he didn’t just come out and say the name, though? Could it be that Taylor’s bail conditions prohibit the naming of certain individuals?
In summary, we think it’s safe to say that Taylor was indeed arrested last Monday on suspicion of harassment causing fear of violence; that the police removed his computer, phone, and other tech equipment for examination; that Taylor is currently on bail; and that his bail conditions forbid him from mentioning the name of the person he is suspected of harassing.
We really don’t know why he couldn’t have just come out and said all that in the first place.
