CONSERVATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE SHOOTING HORROR
 

Star date: 4th October 2011

TORY DELEGATE `SHOOTS' NURSES, TEACHERS, TRADE UNIONISTS AND FAMILIES…

Our photo, sent in by a Salford Star supporter, shows the attitude of a delegate to the Conservative Party Conference during Sunday's march by teachers, nurses, public sector workers, trade unionists and families, as he pretends to shoot them in full view of accompanying police officers.

While people were handed sentences of up to four years in prison for `inciting riots' on facebook during the recent unrest, this pinstriped suited Conservative idiot and his smiling mate will get away with it, we're sure. Unless, of course, David Cameron, the police and the courts prove themselves not to be hypocrites…

Police Sniper in Manchester

While David Cameron and George Osborne talk about `firing up the British economy', here's one delegate who pretends to open fire on ordinary people marching to defend their jobs, pensions and public services.

The incident happened in Albert Square, Manchester, during Sunday's March For The Alternative when thousands of people marched peacefully through the town centre and past the G Mex venue where the Conservative Party Conference was beginning. While there was not one single arrest during the protest, incidents like this could well have sparked a dangerous situation.

Yet the police officers present appear not to be taking any action, while a fellow delegate appears to find the mock shooting rather funny.

As David Cameron and fellow Conservatives tell the country to tighten its belt, take wage and pension cuts, and make do with less public services, this delegate shows the real attitude of those who are attending the conference towards the worried families and workers who felt it necessary to take to the streets on Sunday - mockery and hate.

The Salford Star calls on editors of all British newspapers to put this photo on the front pages and bring the smug pinstripe suited Conservative delegate to justice for incitement. Or is it one law for the working class and one law for the rich?

Wonder if plod have arrested the ignorant tory-toff twot yet , and charged the thatcherite scum with a public order offence , as they would had this been an ordinary person ? Have the two idle plod wasters been charged with neglect of duty yet ? HMMM, thought not . Isn't the impartiality of THE PLOD and ' british justice ' wonderful ? WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER ? NOT .

Cameron mentioned in his speach the improvements made in Wythenshawe since his visit a few years ago when a photograph was taken of a youth behind him as he walked on the estate, gesturing with his hand as if he was pretending to shoot the Tory leader. I do believe that that youth was arrested and charged with an offence. I haven't heard of any such thing happening to the Tory who did a similar thing at the Manchester anti-cuts demo. Indeed, there were actual police spotters on the roof of the AMC cinema building on Deansgate during the Tory conference who may have guns, which gives the whole situation a very sinister dimension.

Perhaps the Eton Rifles are here to protect their head boys. Time to sup up our beer and collect our fags.

Has anyone taken the time to find out who he is and why he was there? Probably a complete arsehole no matter what he represents but the whole article is a bit thin on fact. Over to you Mr Kingston!

Hmmm... looks like 'Gideon' to me. He should have been arrested: Breach of the Peace - but maybe there were no witnesses. ;-)

I think in the first case you will find that "the fellow delegate is actually part of Manchester City Council Security for the day. In the second instant you have no idea to what the delegate was reacting he could have been reacting to provocation from who ever he was aiming his gesture towards. Maybe he was an out of work mime artist who had lost his funding following the withdrawal of arguably overgenerous grants that the previous government was overly enthusiastic about handing out instead of targeting funding to the essentials of society and government. Whatever without the other perspective I find the piece completely spurious and without foundation . Keep your powder dry for the real fight on real issues. This is just a needless distraction from the real fight against the universal manipulator supported by all the main political parties.

Now we know why they are called the 'hunting and shooting brigade'. Well done to the Star for spotting and capturing this from the party of so-called Law and Order. I took a short cut up Peter Street on Sunday's demo and found myself face to face with Eric Pickles, who was looking down the road at the very loud demo passing on Deansgate and looking rather anxious. I told him it was massive, that he should watch the TV news and expect it to be bigger every month. 'Oh yes, that's right, it will' was his only reply. 3 million on strike on 30th November should wipe the smug grin off his face.

A perfect example of the true nature of the torybastards , and their plod boot-lickers . Lets have this smart-suited rioter arrested in a dawn raid ,and dealt with harshly by the courts - 10 years jail should do it , for incitement to murder .

NEW PLAY AIMING FOR SALFORD URGES WORKING CLASS PEOPLE TO ‘SPEAK UP AND BE HEARD’

Star date: 15th April 2018

WHO WILL FUND WORKING CLASS THEATRE?

A new play aiming to be staged in Salford, at the Kings Arms in June, is set to open up issues affecting the working class, "to encourage those that may have once felt lost, silenced or isolated, to speak up and be heard knowing that someone is listening".

The play, Oct.O.Pus, has a diverse cast that includes Coronation Street's Melissa Johns, but is crowdfunding for £1,000 to pay for props, costumes, set etc, as no-one funds proper working class theatre these days.
