UKIP WINS SALFORD STAR AWARD FOR SELF DESTRUCTION
 

Star date: 4th January 2018

THE END OF UKIP IN SALFORD AWARD GOES TO...UKIP

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 11th annual Salford Star Mary Burns Awards, which are given out to honour the most deserving individuals and organisations in the city for their stupid statements, dodgy dealings and iffy activities over the past twelve months.

In the run up to the various elections this year, UKIP disintegrated in Salford with allegations of sleaze and racism, and resignations of its leading lights. For all intents and purposes UKIP is no more. So, ladies and gentlemen, whip yourselves into a frenzy for the winner of the Salford Star Mary Burns Award For Self Destruction – UKIP!

AWARD FOR SELF DESTRUCTION

Goes To...

SALFORD UKIP

What a wonderful year it's been for UKIP in Salford! As the Greater Manchester Mayor Election, the General Election and various local by-elections happened, the Party completely self-destructed in a haze of sleaze and racism allegations.

First up, in early April 2017, was the resignation of Salford UKIP's potential General Election candidate, Seamus Martin, who told the Salford Star he was "appalled" at the Party's 'so-called Integration Agenda', which he described as "Muslim-bashing"; adding that it was an "alienation agenda aimed at deliberately demonising one specific community..." that "made our party look and sound like the spiritual heirs to the Jew-baiters of the 1930s"...

"I do not wish to have my good name sullied by association with this odious agenda..." he concluded (see here).

Worse was to follow, however, at the end of April when Shneur Odze, Salford's ultra-orthodox Jewish UKIP Greater Manchester Mayor candidate, was accused of indulging in a 'sex role-play scandal with woman he met on bondage site' by The Mail on Sunday, and subsequent articles in the Salford Star.

As Mr Odze told the Mail "I've no idea what you are talking about", the Star printed transcripts of texts, allegedly sent to Cassie, the woman in question, where she was referred to as a 'filthy pig' as he asked her to organise a threesome (for full lurid details see here and see here).

While UKIP nationally continued to back its candidate, arguing that it was a 'personal not a political matter', the Star begged to differ, stating it was all blatantly in the public interest, although we resisted publishing the pornographic photos, the more disturbing texts and sound files we had seen and heard.

Meanwhile, Joe O'Neill, the Chair of Salford UKIP, resigned over the affair... "Morally I, and I believe many members of the voting public will feel the same - that trust and family values have been broken" he said "...The calls I received yesterday asked 'Do we support the actions of this individual?' I do not. In politics I firmly believe you live on your reputation and your moral standing; I hope I can walk away with mine still intact..." (see here)

Others also resigned, as Odze polled just 1.87% of the votes for UKIP in the Greater Manchester Mayor Election. In the subsequent General Election, UKIP in Salford failed to stand a candidate in Worsley and Eccles South, and polled a combined vote of just over 4,000 votes in the Salford and Eccles, and Blackley and Broughton constituencies. And that was the last anyone heard of Salford UKIP.

UKIP didn't stand candidates in the Claremont and Langworthy by-elections, and its @SalfordUKIP twitter account is mostly just re-tweeting mad Donald Trump rants.

So, ladies and gentlemen, acknowledge the kink in UKIP's armour, froth at the mouth a little and text "...before baby knew it she was naked on daddy's knee and blowing all the guys there, one at a time...Before a full blown orgy developed and baby was 'used' repeatedly..." for the winner of the Salford Star Mary Burns Award For Self Destruction...

Salford UKIP!!!

Dearest Readers, When one gets to my age, one of the pleasures of life is reading the “Despatched” column and NOT finding your name there! Another is attending the funerals of dear departed friends and not-so-friends, just to make sure they are dead. Incidentally, living on a income-restricted pension, a great money saving tip is to take a plastic floral display then returning the next day to reclaim it, ready for the next funeral! But I digress…… Recently, I was in conversation over a cuppa and Rich Tea biccies with a fellow resident (I think – or was it a mirror?) at the Heights Maximum Security Twilight Home for Politically Dangerous Nonagenarians. I should point out that Joe O’Neill, the doyen of the Conservative Socialist Ecological & Democratic Liberal Party is NOT a resident here….he is too young; neither is the “Thinking Voter’s Pin-Up”, Mary Ferrer. As the conversation progressed it became surreal; I was reminded of the famous Monty Python “Norwegian Blue” sketch between John Cleese and Michael Palin, set in a Pet shop. The conversation went something like this: “This Purple Party, UKIP, that which I voted for is dead!” “No it’s not – it’s sleeping!” “It is no more; it has ceased to be; it is bereft of life, it rests in peace. It is an ex-political party!" “It’s not dead! He’s pining for the golden halcyon days of the 1950s and is probably still in shock from winning the Referendum!” Then that made me think about democracy and referendums (or referenda, if you went to a Latin-teaching Grammar School!) and I thought I would have a look at the referendum results on the Salford Council website vis a vis the recent Langworthy By Election. It seems to me that on a single issue vote, the electorate cast their votes for the option of their choice; yet given the choice between political parties at a By Election or general election, people vote for the party whose policies are the least anathema to them. In Langworthy Ward, in the Referendum the “Leave Vote” was 70.12%; at the By election Labour won with 58.01%. True, UKIP didn’t stand but such a result cannot be an easy read for Labour and its Momentumites, knowing that the bulk of their vote in Langworthy must have come from “Brexit” supporters. Perhaps UKIP isn’t dead but is merely sleeping. Oh dear, I think Matron’s tranquillisers must have kicked in then to make me think like that! I’ll miss my jaunts around Europe on my Mobility Scooter when we leave the EU – the Scottish Highlands really drain the batteries! Perhaps the Award, should be held in abeyance – after all, remember the 2017 Oscars award debacle when the award went to LA LA Land? After all there’s nothing like a good close call election campaign to electrify the electorate and give the established parties a bloody nose!

AS HOMELESS SALFORD MAN DIES UNCLE ASKS WHY IT’S NOT BEING REPORTED

Star date: 23rd January 2018

'FOR ME, IT'S ALL BEING COVERED UP...'

Last Friday, a homeless man from Salford sadly died after living on the streets in Manchester city centre; the latest, many believe, in a spate of such incidents.

Now his uncle wants to know why his nephew's death was not reported and says "This is probably going on in every big city in the country, and for me it is just being covered up..."

From 196 properties being proposed by Selectric Investments Ltd, just one will be affordable, thanks to official Salford Council policy.
