SALFORD TO SEE FIRST DONALD TRUMP PROTEST AS OPEN TOP DOUBLE DECKER TOURS THE CITY

As a prelude to the anti-Donald Trump protest in Manchester this Friday, 13th July, an open top double decker bus will be touring sites in Salford to spread the message that the divisive American President is not welcome in the UK.

With a huge demonstration in London expected on Friday, 13th July, and a demo in Manchester set for Friday evening, Salford is getting a mobile demo, when an open top double decker bus tours the city in the morning in protest at Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

The protest bus begins its journey at 9:30am from the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre on Liverpool Road in Eccles, where lawyers and supporters will be joining homeless people who attend the Breakfast Club at the Centre.

It will then stop off at Eccles Mosque, Salford Royal Hospital, the office of Rebecca Long-Bailey MP on Langworthy Road, Salford Precinct and the Civic Centre in Swinton, before heading into Manchester and, eventually, the Albert Square demonstration at 5pm.*

The double decker Trump-buster bus has been organised by Swinton-based law firm, Mary Monson Solicitors...

"The bus is a symbol of Britain as a place of diversity and inclusion and its use demonstrates the common journey we all make through life and the cooperative spirit which makes humanity great" explains Mary Monson, Founder and Director of the firm.

"We have chosen this form of protest to demonstrate that we, the people of Salford and Manchester, are united in our rejection of Trump's values and politics of division and hate" she adds "We are all potential refugees and the divisiveness promoted by Trump is not welcome."

However, all Salford's residents are welcome to get on the bus or to have a chat at the various stops around the city...

DJ is correct in the fact that he not said anything racist. He is accusing traffic wardens of being race biased, by picking on one group and not another. If what he has said is racist, then the people who accuse the metropolitan police of using stop and search tactics that discriminate against certain groups are also racist, which is a nonsense.There are also other areas in salford where different rules for parking enforcement seem to apply. There are parts of Ordsal where the wardens are less diligent, also parts in north salford where they are a bit thin on the ground. But try parking for a few minutes in the empty cul de sacs near Salford Royal. on you like a bricks.( they think your hospital staff dodging the staff car park.)POWER TO THE DRIVERS.

Bob the regular, you're not making sense! Why would you vote for someone you regard as "a gobshite"? Are you irrational or just perverse ? Is your hatred of Labour so extreme that you would lend your support to Donald Trump ?

Debra's right. Trumps a gobshite. The only times I voted was against europe in 1974 and again for brexit. It is a waste of time voting in Salford, in our glorious city we all know who the peoples choice is. However ,next mayoral election, if Trump was running against Dennett, I would be outside the polling booth waiting for it to open. Trump would trounce Dennett. lets have our own poll on the Star.Trump or Dennett. MY VOTE TRUMP. We need a heavyweight gobshite here to stand against our political elite like trump trounced old mother clinton. Did Clinton know how to treat men? men like her husband a serial fornicator. what was he up to on Epstein Island? And sexually misbehaving with young staff members in the white house. any normal woman would have cut his balls off. (hope rossis have got better)What has Debra got to say about the Clintons? nothing bad I reckon.

Some of the commenters on here need to do some research and not just get spoon fed by the right wing media. Trump has not looked out for his country, his ill judged tariffs and trade wars are putting American farmers and manufacturers out of business. In the meantime his America first agenda doesn't apply to his own business or that of his daughter. Trumps mar a lago club is seeking a waiver so they can employ immmigrant Labour despite many Americans wanting and needing the jobs in Palm beach. His daughter has all her stuff made in China and other third world locales and has waivers on the trade tariffs. Trump has even outsourced to China his merchandise for 2020 campaign, he's a hypocrite. The man lies constantly. He is a misogynist and racist whose divisive rhetoric and policies have meant attacks on Jews, Muslims, Mexicans, African Americans and Asian Americans have rocketed. He is working to stop access to legal abortion despite forcing at least one mistress to abort his child. That is why people are protesting. We don't want this vile man who is clearly unfit for the office of president to spread his disgusting policies and views here. He has conned his supporters into believing his lies because he has state sponsored propaganda with Fox tv (owned by that well known disgrace Murdoch owner of the sun newspaper and the news of the world who knew his journalists were hacking into messages of milly dowler when she was missing presumed dead) Trump only won because of Russian intervention, the same Russian intervention that likely skewed the brexit vote. Democracy is under attack, trump is being used by putin (who likely has financial leverage on trump, hence why he won't release tax records, and kompromat of trump money laundering) to destabilise NATO and the EU. Trump is a criminal who has spent years tax dodging, stiffing, small contractors and conning people, trump university anyone? No legitimate bank would lend him money because he is rubbish at business, hence his dependency on Russia He has been accused of sex trafficking and assaulting women who were then threatened and beaten to stay silent If you admire this man you are cut from the same racist, misogynistic and anti intellectual ilk. SAD

Well my my haven't I shown peoples true colours. Not one thing I said is racist, I pointed out something council employees do that is biased towards a racial group for fear of upsetting them, I can only imagine who much your unisex panties would twist if I mentioned the fact that from time to time at said Mosque walks into the middle of a main road (illegally) and stops traffic just so people can leave and not have to wait at the bothersome zebra crossing like everyone else. Donald Trump is the democratically elected leader of the UK's biggest allie, he was invited to visit the UK by it's own democratically elected leader, it is all perfectly legal and above board. I must have missed the open top buses when genuine world leaders/despots came visiting the UK, or is it there wasn't anything done but Trump bashing is the trendy thing for Left Wing do on a ropes to do. There is good news though as it's raining, as we all know most left wing types need a good shower they can do it on the open top bus while they all sing Kum ba yah and compare sarongs.

Sorry,Slurp,you've got it wrong - the majority of Salfordians want "Working Class Self Emancipation", not state dependency! Emanclpation will come when workers consciously counterpose their economic and political interests àgainst those of the bourgeoisie !

DJ makes a valid point and is labelled 'racist' - the responses pretty much back up his point. Oh well. One thing I do agree on is the sign saying 'Deport Theresa May' in the attached gallery. At last, the 'left' and 'right' unite as one...

Trump is not without faults but, Once upon a time we had a polite, articulate,highly intellegent , well educated prime minister who thought it a good idea to sack most of our steelworkers and all of our miners and put them on the dole and give them money for doing nothing, at the same time destroying the communities these formerly well paid workers lived in.Rightly ,the lefties and the unions opposed this. Now America has an impolite,inarticulate, thick,gobshite of a president who puts all these workers back in jobs in his country as he prommissed he would.How come our lefties and unions do not give him praise for this.Thing is though,how can America spend 2billion dollars, give the public a choice of candidates like they do in the primaries, then end up with 2 arseholes like Clinton and Trump to chose from?

Linda Robson -lived in the area for a fair few years now and i've never been particularly aware of a proud tradition of socialism. Admittedly i've lived in Worsley and Swinton most of my life so 'Salford's' traditions might have gone over my head. That said i think you make it sound like its universally accepted fact when i think its just a bit lefty myth making that local lefties like to tell each other. What is truly genuinely accepted by almost the entire world is Salford's fondness , sorry addiction, for state dependency . I think you've mistaken this for an enthusiasm for socialism.

I would like to see some of our parking Gestapo dish tickets out to some of Mr Trumps redneck supporters. The allegations made by DJ are not unfounded. Go see for yourself.

I have a girlfriend who got a ticket in Salford from Salford Council. Not near Eccles Mosque on a Friday. Salford Council pursued her relentlessly for this even though she hadn't done what they said. I know that for sure, I know who the "guilty" party was.She moved to Lincoln and they had the bailifs round ,all the shit. We took Salford to court, in Lincoln,2 appearances, they even sent the boss of parking services to plead their case. They actually won, but we said we would go all the way to human rights court with what they did.They bottled it and agreed not to pursue it if we didn't appeal.RACIST BEHAVIOUR BY SALFORD TRAFFIC WARDENS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. ALL TRAFFIC OFFENDERS MUST BE TREATED IN A FAIR MANNER.

Hooray for some sanity in the world, okay it's a great PR for the solicitors but so what! This is a brilliant idea so taht the voices who know that Trump is a mysoginist megalomaniac can protest his presence in the UK. Salford has a proud heritage of socialism and our people have travelled the world supporting causes. Where the hell have all the working class Tories come from? Have they forgotten their heritage?

DJ you sound like a disgusting racist, and an all round sad excuse for a citizen of this city. I'm telling you now DJ, when Jeremy Corbyn becomes Prime Minister, people of your ilk will have to be careful when expressing their loudmouthed and bigoted views. Equally, deplorable scum of the calibre that is Donald Trump, will no longer be welcome here... Take your racism DJ, and piss off somewhere else.

How moronic. This had better not impeach on normal folks lives as they go about their business, do these idiots not have anything better to do. Will the bus be at the Eccles Mosque at the same time as Friday prayers? maybe they'll see the total lack of action by the traffic enforcement officers to all the illegally parked vehicles that are ignored for fear of the enforcement officers being labelled racist. TRUMP IS WELCOME. TRUMP IS WELCOME. TRUMP IS WELCOME.

Do not include me in your actions. I am not united with this crowd of left wingers. An advert for a law firm and publicity for the MP. President Trump is looking after his country and his people which is more than most of our politicians do. Save your protests for those despots that spend the billions we give in foreign aid on new personal jets and arms.
