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!

PROTEST AT THE LOWRY AS STUDENTS GET DEGREES

Yesterday, as students received their degrees at The Lowry, Professor James Newell and UCU supporters were outside raising awareness of how the University of Salford sacked him, after 27 years service, for basically failing to chase money in what has become a national cause against the marketisation of education.

Almost 3,500 people have signed a petition calling for Professor Newell's reinstatement, as he told the Salford Star that marketisation "is the essential issue that underlies the exorbitant fees that students have to pay..."

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.
