Part 2: SOCIAL HOUSING CONFERENCE LOBBIED BY BEDROOM TAX CAMPAIGNERS

The Housing 2013 national conference for social housing companies was lobbied this morning as Lord Freud, one of the architects of the dreaded Bedroom Tax, attended.

Protesters came from as far as Liverpool to join with Salford and other Greater Manchester groups to let the Lord-it-over-poverty creep know their feelings.

As yet more welfare cuts were announced in the ConDem Govbernment's Comprehensive Spending Review yesterday, anti-Bedroom Tax campaigners converged on the Manchester Central (GMex) venue for national social housing conference, Housing 2013, as its creator, Lord Freud, arrived to speak to delegates.

Groups came from as far afield as Liverpool, as well as from Salford and Greater Manchester, to vent their anger on the Lord – who has an eight-bedroom country mansion, and a £1.9m property in London. While he sneaked in a side door to avoid the protest, the unmistakeable chant could be by delegates attending the conference… `Axe, Axe, the Bedroom Tax!!!'

"I'm here to spread the message about the Bedroom Tax" said Maria Brabiner, of Salford Against The Bedroom Tax and now a veteran campaigner and speaker against the Tax "Lord Freud, one of the main architects behind the Bedroom Tax, is inside that national housing conference. The police are there guarding the steps because they want to keep us away

"We were also here on Tuesday to Lobby The Landlords and all the delegates were out here watching and listening, and they told us that the Bedroom Tax was being mentioned inside" she added "The campaign continues. The Bedroom Tax will be abolished, it's like the Poll Tax all over again…"

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
