Welsh Labour's Wank Tank

In August 2007 An ex-assembly minister published a pamphlet saying the Welsh Labour party is "unfit for purpose" and needs to be radically overhauled. That ex-minister was of course would-be First Minister and Merthyr AM Huw Lewis, who made the call in the first publication from Wales 20:20, a new Welsh Labour think tank set up by Huw Lewis and others to start debate about the party's future.

The 'think tank' describes itself thus:
Wales 20:20 is a new organisation with one main aim, namely to facilitate wide-ranging and inclusive debate under the ‘democratic socialist’ banner in Wales. Committed to renewing the Labour movement across Wales and remoulding the Welsh Labour Party as a policy driven, campaign minded organisation, we are governed by three simple principles:

1. To promote debate on a democratic socialist future for Wales;

2. To energise and renew the Welsh Labour Movement towards achieving its full potential, through winning the battle of ideas on Wales’s future;

3. To provide a forum for dialogue with progressives throughout Wales, working for a progressive consensus supportive of Welsh Labour’s vision for the future of Wales.

All very interesting, I'm sure. So what level of debate exactly can we expect to find on the site's forums? Here are just some of the topics you can find there:

adriana lima utube sex bikini juniors in school girls (March 21)

Forced Cum Eating Vids (Feb 10)

Asian Schoolgirl Rape (Feb 8)

...and many, many more.

Yesterday the Welsh blog Guerrilla Welsh-Fare noted:
I know it is difficult to constantly moderate content on debate but the fact that this apparently serious political website has allowed very explicit pornographic images to be left on their site without adult warning open to children is careless.

Huw Lewis’ staff member Luke Holland noted my original blog [published last Friday] so I can only assume the problems have been raised with the people behind Wales 20:20. I hope for the reputation of that think tank and for public decency they take the steps to either clean up the forum or take the link down.

This has been going on since at least the beginning of February, and taking into consideration Welsh Labour's recent internet own-goal it's hard not to be stricken with awe at the level of fuckwittery exhibited by the Party's interweblings.

UPDATE 16:27 The Wales 20:20 forum has been taken down...finally.

Seems reasonable to me - after all, otherwise they would have to discuss Labour POLICY !

Well he can spank his monkey and save us some cash now.

Nice to see the site supports Cyrillic script. Indicative maybe of political leanings or just wishful thinking.

what a brilliant idea! hiding a porn site inside a boring old political forum, where no kids are ever going to look... if all the porn sites could be persuaded to do the same then all the arguments for net censorship would fade away like the morning mist.

The jaw-dropping fucking moronic brain-deadedness of the party's attempt to us the electronic interweb is breathtaking.

If ever you wanted proof that politics and political parties attract utter fuckwits look no further than here and Dolly's abysmal Labourlist.

Ha!

Amazingly, the site (and the porn therein) is still up.

It is really surprising that a Labour forum would be so full of porn links after yesterday's revelation about Mr Jacqui Smith expensing his dirty movies?

Hahahahah! Fuck sake. Stupid bastards.

Although, how do we know this wasn't posted by Labour Party members. Maybe they like a bit of Asian schoolgirl rape?

Oh, and word verification is "busts". You can't make that shit up! Haha!

FFS don't tell Jacqi's husband!

Thanks for the link.

Glad they've taken it down although you would have thought it would have been done sooner considering when I first brought it to their attention. The fact that it wasn't brought to their attention sooner shows how well the political forum for debate was being used!

Incidentally i found the forum from a link on the AG website. So i guess its a Labour gift that keeps on giving!
