PARTY LEADERS DEBATE HECKLER BACKS BEZ AT SALFORD PRECINCT
 

Star date: 4th April 2015

`TASTELESS' CAMERON GETS SLATED AGAIN OVER DISABILITY CUTS

Victoria Prosser, who famously woke up the Party Leaders' Debate at Media City this week by heckling David Cameron, slated the Prime Minister again today as she spoke at a We Are The Reality Party rally opposite Salford Precinct.

To huge cheers, she backed Bez's bid to be MP for Salford and Eccles, and laid into "tasteless" Cameron for using his now-deceased disabled son during the debate while cutting Disability Living Allowance for many people... "He claimed it for his son but he won't let you have it" she said "I don't think that's right..."

This afternoon, outside the old Broadwalk Library opposite Salford Precinct, Happy Mondays and New Order tracks banged out of the sound system, in between speeches urging people to back Bez and the We Are The Reality Party in their bid to take the vacant Salford and Eccles seat at the May 7th General Election.

Girls dressed in Reality hoodies registered people to vote on the spot, others handed out party leaflets and, under the temporary gazebo, special guest, Victoria Prosser, who heckled David Cameron at the Party Leaders' TV Debate this week, was slating the Prime Minister again...this time with no bouncers ejecting her, only a bloke with a pig mask and fake police outfit egging her on...

"Cameron's disabled son died five years ago and he brought up that deceased son in the Leaders Debate which I found a bit tasteless" she said "He claimed Disability Living Allowance for his son; he's a rich guy, he didn't need to claim that Disability Living Allowance but he did and now he's cutting it for all of us, telling people who have serious illnesses that they can't have it. He claimed it for his son but he won't let you have it. I don't think that's right."

Victoria also explained why she had a go at the Prime Minister about servicemen during the Debate...

"After they've been abroad, maybe fighting in active service, they come home and quite a lot of them end up with no place to go, no jobs and a lot have mental health problems...and a lot of them end up becoming homeless, and some are homeless right now on the streets of Manchester city centre and probably in Salford as well" she explained

"So those people who have done a job, thinking they were serving queen and country actually end up fighting illegal wars paid for by our taxes, and when they come back from there they have no support from the government or the councils" she added "So when I heard David Cameron talking about them I felt like I should stick up for them. And after I said that, I felt that I had to stick up for everyone because all these posh people in positions of power over us, whether that's in the government or the local council, are not looking after our interests..."

Victoria then continued what she might have said if she'd not been rudely interrupted the other night...

"We're having all these problems with benefit sanctions and Bedroom Tax – why isn't there a tax on all the extra bedrooms at Buckingham Palace instead because they can afford to pay it?" she argued "I know most of us can't afford the demands the Government is putting on us. Even if you're in work nowadays the money just doesn't go as far as it used to because everything costs more. They always want more back from us but we're not earning any more. People are really struggling and I just think it's time for a change.

"How long are we going to let people who have never lived around here, who have never lived the type of lives we're living, tell us that they know how to run our lives better than we do?" she asked "We need to start making changes for ourselves because we can't trust them; they're not working in our best interests. The Reality Party is Salford people; you can vote for them to listen to our views. Get your voice heard because for sure David Cameron isn't listening. He wants your money and your life, and is not prepared to give anything back."

Victoria's speech was cheered by everyone watching, including people passing by, those seeking selfies with Bez and Reality Party helpers. Later Victoria joined Bez, the pig-masked `policeman', her daughter and others, doing a conga to singer Darren Nesbit's `We Are The 99%'.

Finally, Bez himself got on the mic... "They're taking away our NHS, they're taking away our legal aid system...we can't let this happen" he said "So we need to organise together, show solidarity, show people that we're not having this. Let's take responsibility for our own lives..."

The We Are The Reality Party Campaign Tour hits Swinton Shopping Centre next, on the 18th April, followed by Eccles Shopping Centre (25th) and a Salford Street Parade on 2nd May.

Spin, spin, spin, by the (not so) Reality party. What the Tories proposals in fact are is to subject DLA & PIP to std income tax thresholds. So the story of the bloke who won £10m on the Euromillions but was still claiming DLA should be a thing of the past, at the same time DLA & PIP rates for the poorest are to be increased. The only people who need to be worried about this change are the rich selfish bastards that claim something that although they are entitled to do not need (that means Cameron would not get it under the new system). And just for the nasty posters out there about to respond to my comment with claims that I am a rich evil Tory bastard, no I will not be voting Tory this year not for this reason but others. I do however belive in the facts being know, so people can make up their own minds with regards to how they wish to vote.
