`TORIES GO HOME’ MESSAGE FROM MANCHESTER AND SALFORD ON EVE OF CONSERVATIVE PARTY CONFERENCE
 

Star date: 3rd October 2015

ANTI-TORY FLASH MOB LIGHTS UP PICCADILLY STATION

This afternoon, hundreds of people turned up at Piccadilly Station to `welcome' delegates to the Conservative Party Conference by sending out the message `Tories Not Welcome – Go Home'.

Pig sweets were handed out, a giant knitted `Don't Stitch Us Up' banner was draped from the balcony, a choir sang anti-Tory songs and £50 notes were handed out stating `Taken from the poor and given to the rich'.

As last night's sound system continued to boom out beats in Piccadilly Gardens, further up the road at Piccadilly Station a flash mob appeared, aimed at any Conservative Party delegates getting off trains and heading for the Manchester Conference...

They were greeted by people handing out pig sweets, David Cameron himself handing out £50 notes stating `Taken from the poor and given to the rich', a community choir singing sweet anti-Tory songs and a giant knitted banner draped from the balcony reading `Don't Stitch Us Up'.

The hour long protest was well received by both Manchester City and Newcastle United fans en route to today's match, as most agreed with the message placards held up outside a store named Big Shots... `Tories Not Welcome – Go Home'...

The big protest against the Tory Party Conference happens tomorrow (Sunday), with a huge feeder march beginning at 11am in Salford outside the Museum and Art Gallery on The Crescent, while the main march begins in Oxford Road at noon. Over 100,000 people are expected.

MORE HERITAGE TO DISAPPEAR AS EWAN MACCOLL GASWORKS DEMOLITION BEGINS

A demolition team has moved onto the site of Salford's iconic gasworks on Liverpool Street, made world famous by Ewan MacColl's Dirty Old Town anthem.

Ewan MacColl's wife and songwriting partner, Peggy Seeger, slated the 'land grabbing' move and proposed an alternative use that could be "somewhere unlike anywhere in the world" when news first broke of the demolition last year. This has been ignored  and now another slice of Salford's dwindling heritage is set to disappear...

COUNCIL UPS PRICE OF BUILE HILL MANSION PROJECT TO OVER £20MILLION AS PLANS MET WITH SCORN FROM COMMUNITY

Last night, a packed stormy meeting of the Claremont and Weaste Community Committee left Salford City Council in no doubt that any plans to build houses in Buile Hill Park as part of a deal to restore the Grade 2 listed Mansion will be met with fierce opposition.

Salford Council's Assistant Director of the Environment revealed to the meeting that Salford Red Devils Foundation, one of the driving partners of the project, hadn't even signed the controversial Memorandum of Understanding yet – and that the £1.6million cost of restoring the Mansion would have to be met with £1million a year to sustain it, giving a figure of over £20million.
