Rochdale’s nominally Labour MP Simon Danczuk likes to tell his party leadership of his “pro-business” credentials, despite his own less than stellar record in that field, what with now estranged wife Karen’s deli closing suddenly, and a company called Vision 21, of which he was a director, going bust. But one Zelo Street reader has been in touch to paint a less than rosy picture of Danczuk’s attitude to other business people.

Danczuk continued to be a director and majority shareholder in Urban Visions Limited after he became an MP, but it went into liquidation in June 2011, and was wound up owing £222,000 to creditors, including £113,000 to HM Revenue and Customs
Danczuk was selected in early 2007 to be Rochdale Labour Party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. The acrimonious selection process was delayed due to problems with postal voting and the local party passing a motion of no confidence in the selection process. Local members were concerned that the short-listing process was deliberately manipulated in order to exclude Afzal Khan, a Manchester councillor, who had received the highest number of nominations.
Sounds like having Danczuk as a Labour MP will do the Party no favours. Perhaps he needs to resign.
