HAZEL BLEARS EXPENSES SCANDAL
 

WORDS THAT COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU

Oh dear! People have been dragging up Hazel's past and kind of chucking it in her face. So here's some more, courtesy of Mary Burns...


Number 1...

"The qualities of Salford men and women shine through the adversity of their everyday lives. They were, and still are, people with courage, determination, wit and compassion, and they have an unrivalled ability to see through falseness and to expose insincerity." Hazel's maiden speech in the House of Commons on becoming an MP.

Number 2

"Our parents' generation saw political activity as something to benefit the community. Today, people see politics as something to benefit politicians. This is a travesty." Hazel speaking two years ago

Number 3

"I have always said that politics was in danger of looking like a way for people to benefit themselves, rather than serve the public. This is ... very unfair to all those elected representatives who champion their communities, work hard, make personal sacrifices, and don't expect much reward or thanks." Hazel answering questions in today's Guardian

I HAVE NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHY THE PEOPLE WHO SPEND THEIR LIVES IN THE PERVERBIAL DOO-DOO, ALWAY VOTE LABOUR - SINC COUNCIL ESTATES ETC. - ALWAYS THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOTHING, GET NOTHING UNDER LABOUR - EVEN THE BENEFIT BRIGADE HAVE TROUBLE FILLING IN THE FORMS LABOUR DEVISE TO STEALTHILY STRANGLE THE ATTEMPTS OF THE ARMY OF LOYAL LABOUR BENEFIT SCROUNGERS WHO VOTED THEM IN, THEIR HOPE BEING THEY WOULD BE GETTING HAND-OUTS IN EXCHANGE FOR THEIR VOTES - THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT IT TAKES ONE TO FIND ONE! AND THEY FOUND ONE ALRIGHT WITH HAZEL BLEARS - THIS MODERN TWO FACED TOKYO ROSE SHOULD BE TRIED FOR INLAND REVENUE FRAUD, DUPLICITY AND A TRAITOR TO THE ENGLISH SENSE OF FAIR PLAY AND DECENCY, AT LEAST AS IT USED TO BE.

Hazel Blears should be brought to justice before the courts like any other person would be and made to pay back everything she has claimed which were not required to do her job, and then she should be sentenced, like everyone else would be. At the end of the day Hazel Blears, like everyone else at the top of the Labour party is a Fabian Socialist whose logo is a wolf in sheep's clothing. You get what you vote for and if you don't know what you're voting for you get Hazel Blears and her ilk.

If the people of Salford keep this piggy Durecell Money Bunny as their MP. Then they deserve everything they get. Which has not been much in the past. And will be a lot less in the future. She certainly made personal sacrifices, she struggled hard to keep her hands in the Tax payers piggy bank. It nust ahve really hurt her banking the money. Does any think she would have paid the money back if the Daily Telegraph had not outed them all. Dont think so.

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
