This weekend saw different ways of helping the growing number of homeless people in Salford and Manchester.

In Salford, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre (SUCRC) is trying to get homeless people to register to vote, using its own address so that a political statement can be made at the ballot box in the local elections.

Anyone who knows of a homeless person who isn't registered can get them to contact SUCRC as soon as possible, as tomorrow is the last day to register. Either call in
at 84-86 Liverpool Road, Eccles M30 0WZ, or phone 0161 789 2999.

Meanwhile, yesterday Party Protest Manchester held a KFC food kitchen in Piccadilly Gardens handing out free meals, while a sound system boomed out tunes. It was followed by a homeless march around the area...

"I think the councillors have listened to us but they tell us there is not a lot they can do because central government are making decisions that leaves them with their hands tied to some extent" explained organiser Emma Mohareb "Despite what they say I think there are loads of things they can do better...I have spoken to Andy Burnham and I don't think he is going to accomplish his mission to stop homelessness by 2020. It's not that I don't trust him, it is more that I don't trust his power.

"I think central government has strings over him" she added "I think moving people out of Manchester city centre where the support is seems crazy. What support are they going to get in places like Chorlton? It won't be as good as if they were central where they can come and get food. When they are in this type of accommodation they don't have money all the time, they will have to wait for their benefits to be set up so they have to come to the street kitchens.

"I'd like to tell Andy to come and work with people like myself and see what we can do, and to ask him if we can speak to someone higher, so they can hear where we are coming from" she explained "We need to speak to central government and they need to listen to people like me who have worked with homeless people for years. I work for free, I don't charge anything, so why not work with people like me to save money?

"I do try to do my best because at the end of the day we need a better country and a better city to live in" she concluded "I don't want my daughter to walk down the street in ten years and it still be a zombie town! Our government has allowed this to happen in one of the richest countries in the world..."

It seems to me that perhaps Emma Mohareb is perhaps from the other side of the river and does not know about "The root of the cause" (lefty speak)) of the homelessness . Dennett is Burhams housing Tzar. The root of the cause is mad hatter Dennett and his labour mob over zealously using the mad labour pathfinder policy. They got the name pathfinder from the RAF. The pathfinders were the small fighter bombers that marked the targets in germany for the big bombers to drop the big bombs on. This caused great damage and annoyance to the german people, much like the modern pathfinder project has done to us.Dennett and burnham know the poor and impovrished will always vote labour, along with a lot of working class people and educated well meaning idealists, but that is not enough to get them into power,and they know that. what they are doing, is getting ordinary people who are a bit better off into huge debt. when a recession comes,and one will,there will be turmoil when the next housing bubble bursts.People will then look to the left, or perhaps right. Perhaps Emma should meet up with the editor of this journal, perhaps he could put her straight as to why dennett will never solve Greater Manchesters housing problem. A guy from Canada i met once told me that the problem we have over here is that we have too many experts. how right. I can think of 2 guys knew who could not read or write, but they would have been more use to the housing problem,they were 2 of the best brickies i ever worked with. The ancient greeks or Romans used to say, " a man who does not know how to sow corn has no place in government". We should say "a person who does not know how to build houses should have no place in government" Look at our two bob the builders dennet and merry. one a bit younger than me, the other a lot younger than me. Can anyone ever imagine these two clowns ever doing any work on a construction site, but look how many pictures you can find of them with builders hats on and high vis jackets.Its a bit like these guys you see around town dressing up like motor bikers, but dont have motor bikes. At least the iron chipmunks got a couple of motor bikes.

NUMBER OF COUNCILLORS COULD BE CULLED IN REVIEW OF WARDS

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.

The Salford Star believes the officers are in line to share around £54,000 between them.
