The BNP are racist fascists. The Labour party, Lib dems and Conservative are all status quo. English dems and Independent are far too weak. That leaves UKIP and that is why I help Andrew Townsend. :-)

If the Tories come to power the country deserves all it gets. Although not ideal Gordon Brown has thw country at heart.

We were out on Tuesday Evening in Langworthy canvassing on David Henry's campaign. We came across Hazel with 3 activist (that she has dragged in from out of the Area). She made a quick exit when she saw our Hazel Must Go Leaflets. Anyhow vote for David Henry and Andrew Behan in the Ordsall Ward. We are very happy to knock on your door for a chat unlike Hazel.

Thursday, 22nd April 2010 My daughter came to visit me tonight before going to work. Hazel Blears and supporters came to canvass in the road (the first time we've ever seen her) and parked either side of my daughter's car blocking her in. She had to wait nearly an hour before they returned and she could leave, now late, for her minimum wage job. This kind of lack of consideration is hardly likely to persuade a first-time voter to cast her vote for Labour - they could at least have left her a tin-opener to enable her to get out!

ARTISTS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN CONTROVERSIAL URBAN SPLASH SALFORD DEVELOPMENT

Star date: 15th October 2018

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
