SALFORD AND ECCLES MP REBECCA LONG BAILEY PROMOTED TO SHADOW CABINET
 

Star date: 27th June 2016

AMIDST LABOUR PARTY BLOODBATH REBECCA LONG BAILEY BECOMES SHADOW TREASURY CHIEF

As the Labour Party tears itself apart, with mass resignations from Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinet, Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long Bailey, has been promoted from a Shadow Treasury Minister to Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

Full details here...


As the Labour Party tears itself to shreds post-Brexit vote, Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long Bailey, has been promoted to Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinet.

Seema Malhotra, Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, was one of the dozen Shadow Cabinet members who resigned in the first wave of the anti-Corbyn coup, and this morning Corbyn supporter Rebecca Long Bailey, who was previously a Shadow Treasury Minister, became the new Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

Jeremy Corbyn faces a motion of no confidence and insists "Those who want to change Labour's leadership will have to stand in a democratic election, in which I will be a candidate."

As two more Shadow Cabinet resignations hit Corbyn this morning, the new Shadow Transport Secretary, Andy McDonald, explained why the Labour Party Leader should stay…

"He has a mandate to stay. It was only nine short months ago that he was elected with a massive majority. And I know that he hasn't been popular across the PLP. That's the understatement of the year. But it's the members who overwhelmingly embraced Jeremy's narrative. And I think some of my colleagues need to completely recognise that."

So far, Rebecca Long Bailey hasn't commented on either her appointment or the Corbyn situation


Update: 28th June

Barbara Keeley, MP for Worsley and Eccles South has resigned from her role as Shadow Minister for Older People, Social Care and Carers, as Salford MPs remain split on supporting Jeremy Corbyn.

"When you were elected I respected your mandate and carried on in my role in the Shadow Treasury team. I then accepted the new role in the Shadow Health team" wrote Keeley in a letter to the Labour Party Leader "Our Shadow Health team, headed by Heidi Alexander, has worked very well over the last nine months. However, much has changed following Heidi's resignation and I do not feel that I can serve in the new Shadow Health team.

"I am deeply concerned that the current state of the party means we will not be able to mount an effective front bench Opposition to the Tories in Parliament in future..."

The Chilcot report findings make me sick to my stomach that I supported Tony Blair and Labour with my vote and donations at the time. I now feel lies, deceit, hoodwinking and bullying in what I am reading. Labour MPs, Blair and his advisors must be put in war crime arrests. The Labour Party must be held to account for the 200 UK soldiers dead as a result of the unequipped and the wrong sending of them into war. I demand our 2 MPs to call for war crime prosecutions and demand no cover up. This is what they must do to prove the UK believes in Justice. I apologise for being a Labour supporter at that time, sincerely totally sorry.

Hi JC. Sorry to read you attacking UKIP. Let's be absolutely clear that I am not racist and I do not know anyone racist in UKIP. Now look at Labour who expelled a gay for 9 years. Labour who are a Party trying to explain their abuse of Jewish citizens. Labour that has MPs and Councillors owning second and third properties to push up rents for profit. Labour that in the 30 years where I was a member had Labour Councillors sent to prison over big expenses abuse. But getting us back to our local MP, will she resign when Corbyn is pushed, will she move home into Salford as promised at her election or will she be supported by the 43 Salford Labour Councillors not listening to the people but who instead support Jeremy Corbyn like brainless limpits glued to the Titanic.

There are some very good Labour Councillors and some very bad ones. As for UKIP I hope they never get a seat in Salford. They are a disgrace to our country. The way Farage stood up in parliament and said what he said in Brussels is disgusting. As for Salford UKIP they seem more bothered about insulting Labour rather than listening to the people of salford and coming up with cridible alternatives. Well done Rebecca keep up the good work.

Welcome to Salford Lord Nelson. But sad to say you are blind to the fact that your Jeremy Corbyn is about to achieve what no other Labour leader has, including your Tony Blair example. Destruction of The Labour Party. I was a member 30 years and ran an MPs office making me know the destruction will be terminal. It means no future for your Labour. It will impact on Salford labour council because nationally they have no person suitable to take over their Leadership. Ditch Labour as you cannot stop it destroying a once great institution.

The problem is not Jeremy Corbyn . He is a fine politician . The problem is the blairite backstabbers out for revenge . After all , Blair will shorty be exposed as a war criminal in the Chilcott report .

I was feeling quite depressed with the increases in race hate from the right and age hate from the left, the completely bizarre hostility to democracy from the liberals and even the weather is especially crap. But there's a silver lining - the Labour Party are going down the bog big time, and all because they ignore their own voters. One anti-democratic party almost gone, let's hope the rest follow. Power to the People, Not the Parties :)

Sorry Ray to disappoint you but I have no anger about the drag comment. My performance was rather like John Tavolta in his Hairspray role as his amazing Edna. Me winning manchester pride karaoke gave me first prize to entertain 200,000 people watching the parade as pride queen. My performance was great fun and I do respect the real life of LGBT citizens. It is a great shame these people have to endure abuse.

Michael, answer the question , are you pitching to become UKIP "Gauleiter" for Greater Manchester? What did you think about Nigel directly channelling Adolf Hitler in Brussels yesterday -- "they laughed at me but now look who's laughing?" Hitler said these exact words at the start of World War 2. I'm fully committed to equality but my Liberalism stops at offensive and frankly degenerate representations of the female form, pace drag.

Hi Ray - Thank you for raising the question. You do realise the significance of The Labour Party's latest demise. Labour get more broken by the day. A vast number of its leaders are ready to defect. UKIP has people like me proving UKIP is inclusive. It is the party of the future. I will be pleased to carry a UKIP banner as either MP candidate in Salford/Eccles or in Worsley/Eccles or as Greater Manchester Mayor. If fact I would love to be their equality spokesperson. Do feel welcome to continue personal attacks, it only goes to show how Labour has lost its way on equality and inclusion.

So Corbyn has lost his vote of confidence by 172 / 40!!! like i said he was getting desperate rebbeca ??? You should of told him to get stuffed ! did you or any of the other Salford Labour councillors not listen to the people of Salford. Maybe as you live in chester you could not hear them. Only UKIP listen and want to work to make Salford great again. making bins 3 weekly as of this month does not help your cause ! Why anyone votes for LABOUR now makes my blood boil as ther are lots of UKIP people who are willing and able to do that job better !!!

Michael, dream on,come next May UKIP will be humiliated in Salford -- a bit like your pathetic bid for Mayor four years ago. Can you tell us will you take like a man/drag queen or will you spit your dummy out if you fail to secure the UKIP nomination for G.M Mayor?

I see from the votes some families were 5 to 1 for leave. Excellent. With Labour now destroyed rather than split and Conservatives shamed by their out of touch proof we must demand fresh elections in an all out Salford election. Only UKIP offers belief in a real future of success.

Promoted? More like she won it in a lucky dip. The looney left can keep voting jezza in, but the general public never will. Labour once again fail to capitalise on the tories woe's.

56.7% leave and 43.3% remain is 3 to 1?

This news gives clear indication that the Corbyn battle will not split the Labour Party but will extinguish the hopes of any future government win for Labour. Now is the time for UKIP to stand ready to pick up another 4million voters pushing into the win of 300 UKIP MPs at the coming general election. Locally UKIP is on course to become Greater Manchester Mayor bringing jobs into our local communities. Thank you people for backing the best of futures for our region.

Good Luck !!! Corbyn will be gone within the week lets see how long you last ? The people of Salford voted to Leave by 3 to 1. The People of Salford are not stupid. You and all the other councillors wanted to stay IN ! Giving our jobs/houses/doctors places to economic migrants over the people of Salford.

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
