Thousands of net readers surfed onto www.salfordstar.com to see Salford City Council pick up a massive 15 MARYS for everything, including the `Uncle Joe Stalin Award for Open and Democratic Government' and the `Go Stand In The Corner' Award For School Building.

Hazel Blears MP weighed in with 7 MARYS, including the Error of Judgement Award and the Hypocrite of the Year Award.

Other winners included Peel Holdings (4 MARYS), NWDA (3 MARYS), Central Salford URC (3 MARYS) and Urban Splash (2 MARYS)…
