HAZEL WATCH – THE CLOCK IS TICKING
 

Salford MP and Communities Minister, Hazel Blears, is still rattling on about politicians `listening and responding’ to communities.  So why hasn’t she responded to our open letter, written and sent to Parliament last November?

Hazel Blears seems very concerned about `empowering’ `working class communities’, so almost two months ago, as constituents, we wrote to her asking how the Salford Star can get funding, as the magazine `empowers’ the working class community in Salford.  We’re still waiting for a reply. 

Now, had this been any old MP we wouldn’t expect anything different but this is a government minister, from Salford, who’s going around saying “The job of politicians and leaders is to listen and respond, to have the very debates that people in these estates are having or we risk losing touch with them altogether.”

Judging by our experience, Hazel can’t even `listen and respond’ to people in her own constituency, never mind anyone else in the country. We think that she is a very rude lady indeed…

If there are any MPs reading this we’d like you to ask Hazel in the House of Commons why she hasn’t responded to our letter…

You can read the open letter to Hazel here http://www.salfordstar.com/article.asp?id=10
And you can e-mail us if you need any further details:

The bleary one's idea of 'empowering' communities obviously does not stretch to giving them a voice. Much less to advance the great cause that is the Salford Star. Her stature is dwarfed only by her ignorance, which is clearly demostrated by her failure to even acknowledge your letter. That woman (I don't know why you refer to her as a lady, for she certainly is not)has lost touch with reality, let alone the people of Salford!
