SALFORD MAYOR CHRISTMAS CARD HORROR
 

Star date: 24th December 2013

`LET THEM EAT CAKE'… SALFORD COUNCIL CHRISTMAS CARD

It's not often that the Salford Star is speechless but having seen this year's animated Christmas card from Santa hat-clad Mayor Ian Stewart… we are, er, speechless!

It shows the Mayor, his Deputy and the three remaining senior Council officers going into an oven and then dancing into a `gingerbread town hall'. Takes the biscuit? Let them eat cake? What is the message? We're speechless!

Full cruel yule card horror here…


OMG! What were they thinking when Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart decided to send out this animated Christmas card to staff this year?
 
At first the Salford Star took pity – maybe it was designed by one of the two winners, age four and six, of the Mayor's Christmas card competition. But no, it appears not…their's are infinitely better!

The horror e-card shows Mayor Ian Stewart along with Deputy Mayor David Lancaster, and the three Council senior officers who are left – Sue Lightup, Nick Page and Ben Dolan – coming out of an oven as, er, gingerbread people, and then dancing into a gingerbread town hall.

We're still trying to work out the subliminal message to staff who face £millions of cuts in the New Year…er, `Let them eat cake'?...

Or perhaps it's to do with the seasonal story of the Gingerbread Man`Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!'… But then, look what happened to him…

Whatever, it is truly gross and not to be shown to excitable children or those of a nervous disposition…

Sorry people of salford I forgot to sign it . Yours truthly and sincerely Mayor. Ian Stewart , elected dictator of salford.

A complete abuse and misuse of the council IT system. The three strategic Directors should be disciplined as has and would happen to workers lower down the food chain. Only 2years ago scary spicer handed out mass bollockings to council workers who shared a joke on the it system. Disgraceful,!

What a brilliant clip, it's that good you can not even see the Puppet strings on the arms of the mayors cronies. I am sure it will cheer up those in Salford that are suffering because of mayor Stewart, too many to mention but I am sure they will all thank-you Ian.

OMG how much taxpayers money was spent on producing this crap? Do the people featured not feel any shame? And third question is, can the mayor name just one member of staff who actually wanted a Christmas card from him? This is a SICK joke the mayors position is now untenable, he must resign. Now that would be a lovely present for all the staff and the people of this city.
