Campaign groups may unite against Blair

Fathers 4 Justice, the campaigning group behind a series of high-profile stunts is in talks with the UK Independence Party and the Countryside Alliance over an election pact.

Matt O'Connor, who founded the fathers' rights group, said the anti-EU party and the pro-hunting lobby are considering a co-ordinated campaign of direct action against Labour in the run-up to the general election.

He said: "There is the possibility of an alliance of groups coming together and forming a strategy to impact on Labour.

"Any one of these parties or groupings does not necessarily have the muscle on their own. But if we see the Countryside Alliance, Ukip and Fathers 4 Justice working together it becomes a very different animal - and an animal with teeth.''

Initial contact had been made with the Countryside Alliance and talks will take place once today's court challenge to the hunting ban has taken place, Mr O'Connor said.

Labour strategists hope that if, as expected, an injunction delaying its implementation is granted, a mass campaign of civil disobedience will be avoided. However, hard-liners are still determined to make their fury known during the election.

Usually dressed as superheroes, Fathers 4 Justice campaigners have gained notoriety for stunts including scaling Buckingham Palace.

One member even handcuffed himself to Children's Minister Margaret Hodge. The group plans to stand against Ms Hodge in her Barking constituency as part of its election offensive.
Fantastic, another group of individuals who are getting of their arrse to fight labour at the election polls.

They should join forces with the 'vote no for labour' campaign!

that would really make labour cack their pants!

I vote for UKIP anyway, but this is good news :twisted:
A vote for UKIP is effectively a vote for Blair, since you are splitting the opposition vote. I f we want to see him out that is not the way to do it.
I'm a member of the CA and if they start having anything to do with the shifty bunch of xenaphobes that is UKIP I want my money back. :evil: Not keen on F4J either these days, they're getting a little too silly.
Splitting the Tory vote is possibly the most stupid thing they've ever thought of.

In my darker moments I wonder just whose side the Alliance is on. They seem to be "running with the fox while hunting with the hounds" and unwilling to really go for NuLab.
Yep, im abit worried that the coutnry alliance are alligning themselves with the UKIP (and to a certain extent F4J)

They should really join forces with the organisation. That way, they could really muster some support.

Think about it

The number of servicemen and women and their families who are urined off with labour
The number of fathers who have been denied access to thier kids under new labour
The country alliance
Those opposed to the war (on both sides of the argument)
Those who want control over immigration
Those opposed to increaing centralisation of power to the EU

the list gets bigger and bigger
