Danczuk rejected and humiliated

Date published: 09 June 2017

Disgraced former Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk was completely humiliated in the General Election polling a mere 883 votes after running the nastiest election campaign in Rochdale in living memory.

Rejected by Labour as its candidate, Danczuk was well and truly rejected by the electorate of Rochdale attracting an embarrassing 1.76% of the votes cast - losing him his deposit.

Rubbing salt into Danczuk's monumental ego, his attempt to cost Labour's Tony Lloyd the seat with a despicable smear campaign backfired as Mr Lloyd won with the largest majority ever recorded in the constituency.

Churlish to the very end, Danczuk refused to be interviewed and stormed out of the count hours before the result when it quickly became obvious he had failed in a quite spectacular fashion.

The people of Rochdale can now rejoice that Danczuk is finally history, no more sex scandals, no more expenses scandals, no more milking the system for every penny he can get, no more lurid headlines in the national media dragging Rochdale through the mud time and time again.

Danczuk's love of Twitter is also biting him back as he gets a mauling and is mocked mercilessly.


Paul Taylor, Danczuk's former brother-in-law, posted: "Oh dear Simon, I thought it was you not the party that people voted for! Good riddance and karma has caught up with you."

Peter George Owen‏ posted: "I am absolutely delighted that the odious Simon Danczuk has lost his deposit in Rochdale."

Luke Mackay‏ posted: "Poor old walking Shakespearean tragedy Simon Danczuk has lost his deposit in Rochdale."

Dr. Helen Finch posted: "And Simon Danczuk out? Truly the goddess is smiting the enemies of womankind tonight."

Daz posted: "Simon Danczuk
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My oh, my what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay."
