One difference is in China they would protect local heritage. I see Salford Lads Club in the photo where young volunteers have helped raise £750,000 of their £1m target fund to save this Club. Why will Salford Labour Council not put £250k into Salford Lads from those millions lent to Salford Reds and give Ordsall local heritage a community lifeline?

The mayor and labour cuncillors do what they want in salford. No one is held to account. This week both spicer and lightup highly paid officers of the council, were strongly criticised for neglect in the manchester eve news. The response from the overpaid Mayor.........nothing! Neither have been disciplined . Come on mr Mayor do your job!!!
