Star date: 2nd December 2013

WHERE'S WALLY PROTECTOR BLOCKS BARTON MOSS IGAS GATE

A campaigner dressed as Where's Wally superglued herself to the entrance gates of the IGas drilling site at Barton Moss today to delay trucks trying to leave the plant.

Meanwhile three more arrests were made at the site today as campaigners against fracking in Salford accused Greater Manchester Police of `aggression'.

Following on from Monday, when a campaigner locked himself onto to a tanker that was attempting to leave the IGas drilling site at Barton Moss, today a campaigner dressed as Where's Wally superglued herself to the site's gates to also delay lorries trying to leave in another imaginative protest.

Earlier, ten trucks were delayed by over an hour trying to get into the site as campaigners walked slowly in front of them doing the `Salford Shuffle'. Greater Manchester Police arrested three people `on suspicion of obstructing a highway'.

Sophie Baxter from Frack Free Greater Manchester said: "I fully support the people down there who have given up everything to help protect our community against corporate interests. IGas, the Government and the local council continue to underestimate the strong public opinion against fracking.

"The police were very aggressive towards people this morning, all of the arrests were needless" she added "We will not tolerate this type of aggression from a police force that is meant to be here to protect the public and are currently seeking legal advice to take this further."

Those who have set up camp at Barton Moss and those who attend the now daily protests have called on more people from Greater Manchester and Salford to go down to the site and show support.

Coming very soon on Salford Star…

Jobs? Cheap gas? The truth from the horse's mouth…

The Police have confirmed that there is no evidence to suggest it came from the camp. By now though the camp have been dragged through all the mainstream papers and media.

David Funny Adolph Hitler said the same things as you/ As for the Viking I do not think Socialist Ideals were banded about in those far gone days The Brits wiped off the face of the earth in the recent past three different races off Aboriginals in Australia just one example of Capitalisation in motion do I have to go on

David whateveryerface, what the bleeding hell does "name one notable thing that any of the countries you mentioned has given the would (sic)" have to do with anything? As for why the left are doing so badly in the poles, I've no idea, all I can do is point out the obvious i.e. that privatisation has been a disaster for the consumer. Now if you think I'm wrong tell me why. By the way with attitudes among UKIP members I would not accuse others of taking us back to the stone age.

Ken, so the Vikings were law abiding humanitarians in there day, so the left have once again rewritten history, the Viking didn't go around raping and pillaging, I am sure if they had the weapons of today they would have used them, if there is one thing that the human race is good at and that is killing each other and that has happened since man has arrive on this planet and it will continue till we're wiped off it. Name a time in human history when there has not been a war or conflict, it's called survival of the fittest, even in the most peaceful societies, if you change the conditions negatively as we've seen around the world after major disasters and conflicts people turn on each other and the law of the jungle takes over.

@ken, name one notable thing that any of the countries you mentioned has given to the would, apart from Sweden, abba, I can't think of one thing they have given to the world, yes great socialist countries these, try living in Sweden where a can of coke will set you back about £8, but I do like how Sweden still have national service, you have to do two years, then you get to take your M16 assault rifle home with you to keep, probably why they don't suffer to much trouble with left wing demo's or drugged up thieving b*sterds, really ken your really are scrapping the barrel with these countries, if what these countries are doing is so great, why then isn't every other country following them, why is it all immigrants first port of call seem to be Britain, when you got these great socialist counties to go to. Tell me ken, what do these three countries you mentioned manufacture and export to the rest of world apart from oil and gas Norway, Denmark, they don't make anything of note. @ Bernard, if what is going on in this country is so bad, then why are the leftwing groups and parties not doing so well in the opinion poles, you'd think people would be flocking to them in their droves, just look at the Green Party can't get out of double figures when it comes to voting, you can't trust a bunch of sandal wearers to run the country, they'd take us back to the Stone Age given the chance.

Bernard Brough wrote Privatisation has been an unmitigated disaster. So privatisation's got a lot in common with socialism then. And who are the daft socialists trying to bring down the police helicopter with a flare, like I've said before, it's not the people on the right you have to be afraid of, it's the lefties who are the danger.

When the government allowed the private sector medical Companys to do breast implants apparently they used sub standard materials which were cheaper but turned out to be extremely dangerous to the patients health/ When the operations had to be reversed these people who were responsible for the transplants all appeared to have run out of money/ so the reversal operations had to be done on the NHS/ Hope this is not an example of things to come/PS because the gov is taking away our Access to the law and with it our rights to claim for accidents and injurys please excuse any wrong adjectives my computer is simply doing what it feels like

@Kenneth Mckelvey, your complaining about the privatisation of transport and the quality of the Arriva buses! Don't make me laugh, I remember when buses in Salford were that dirty you could literally not see out of the windows and if you sat downstairs at the back you got a good lung full of diesel fumes. None of the drivers gave a damm either because it was almost impossible to get sacked, oh yeah they could speak English but manners, pride, and professionalism didn't feature anywhere. A hot summer was often a problem as well with windows that didn't open although in winter you didn't fair any better either as drivers used to have to open the doors to see out during a right turn because they were that dirty.

Some of these protesters should try living in a REAL police state if they want to experience real oppression, brutality and abuse of human rights. These people are just a bunch of weekend socialists, brain washed at university by a system infiltrated by Russian spys in the 1930s, using the nazi threat as a cover. Now these idiot protesters want to force their parents, grand parents and their own children in to fuel povety by spending a major proportion of their income on heating their home, because we are at present so relant on imports. Shale is the key to ending that form of poverty, but the average brainwashed student brain is blinded its own selfrighcious principles

There is a grain of truth in what you say Ken, privatisation has largely mean't that the utility companies fell into foreign hands, to whom we now pay shareholders in other countries. Moreover, many of these companies do not pay tax in the UK , so we have lost out in many ways. Going onto Barton Moss, I'm afraid the press are giving too much credibility to the protestors, there seems to be a hard core of perhaps just 10 people, who are outweighed by the police. It is not worthy of the amount of news coverage given to it. Nor, is it properly representative of 70,000,000 UK citizens

"James Spiers, 29, of no fixed abode, returned to the protest camp in Salford after being granted unconditional bail at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday. ……….. Boarding school-educated Spiers used a bike chain to lock himself to one of the lorries moving in convoy from the drilling site at around 3pm on Monday. ……… Despite reports from protesters that police have been heavy-handed, Spiers said he was treated well in custody and spent his one night in the cell meditating and doing headstands." So it’s not all heavy-handed brutality.

Todays behaviour once again from the GMP was totally over the top. We are all here to protect the land and the atrocity that is Fracking the hell out of our future needs a voice and today the young lady sought to be heard. This came after the 3 arrests. We need to get the public more aware of things going on under their noses and if these spectacles for the media work to get attention then why not?

Well done and grateful thanks to the Protesters who are supporting us all . Police aggression is nothing new. The police have always done the bidding of their Capitalist Masters. Remember the Great Miner's Strikes ? We should never have let the Exploiters win .

When you said Wally had superglued himself to the gates, I thought Ian Stewart had got himself down there on the protest. So Wally's got two impersonater in salford, one in the council and one on the demo, but the useful one, is on the demo.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
