Dennis Skinner, MP and 'Beast of Bolsover', appears for a live Q and A this week at a fundraiser for the Eccles based Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre.

Dennis Skinner is the latest icon of the left to show support for the Eccles based Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre (SUCRC), which is desperately trying to raise funds to cover huge cuts in its budget.

Following the successful Ken Loach evening at the Moston Miners Centre recently which raised over 6,000, Dennis Skinner appears within the same format a showing of his film, The Beast of Bolsover, followed by a live Q and A session. Plus speakers and live acts, including comedian Smug Roberts, The Northern Ramblers, From Carbon and Argh Kid. Paula Barker NW Unison and
Salford MP Rebecca Long Bailey are also supporting the event and speaking.

The outspoken MP actually started his political career as a councillor in Clay Cross, and editor of the Clay Cross Clarion, which had four pages... "We asked difficult questions of the council and printed the answers under the headline, The Truth" he recalls in his autobiography. Good job he wasn't doing it in Salford he'd get no answers!

Meanwhile, Skinner writes that, once an MP, he wasn't frightened of stirring it, famously opposing the Blair and Brown Labour Party Government on certain issues...

"I was prepared to vote against legislation I believed ran contrary to the interests of the working people and the principles of the Labour Party: academy schools, NHS foundation trusts, privatisation, PFI, up to 28 days detention without charge, welfare cuts and every Common Market treaty..." he writes.

Find out Dennis Skinner's views on current Corbyn policy at the Q and A, plus anything else that's vital to know in what should be a night not to be skipped.

"It's so good to have the support of so many good and famous people who come from the working class" says Alec McFadden, SUCRC Manager "All understand just how bad the Tory Government benefit system is."

The Centre represents and helps people who have problems with benefits, sanctions, work issues, homelessness and more...

"The income of our fighting centre has been cut by fifty per cent but we fight on, defending the interests of our vulnerable clients" McFadden adds "The money raised next Friday evening will help ensure that the Centre's vital role continues..."

For over a month, more than a dozen homeless people have occupied an old empty doctor's surgery in Eccles. The NHS owns the building but, ironically, wants them out and back on the freezing streets. Yet vulnerable people who have fallen through Andy Burnham's 'A Bed Every Night' net are being supported here by rough sleepers teams and grass roots outreach workers...

"We want to bring more people into this building because while we've got it we feel that we're saving people's lives" says Angela Barratt of Salford Street Support "The Salford community has been fabulous with us."
