THE OTHER SIDE OF SALFORD
 

Star date: 5th May 2010

ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF SALFORD 

Today, we drove around Salford taking photographs of the other side of Salford – one that's a million miles away from the image being portrayed by MediaCityUK and The Lowry and the University of Salford. Yet all this is on the doorstep of these projects.

Welcome to the wreckage of Salford's regeneration – pictures speaking louder than a million empty words of politicians…

no-one has been to my door from any of the partys. if the candidates are not willing to meet the people how can the candidates ask for our support, by voting for them. Hazel Blears MP did come down to the estate of duchy{salford} some weeks ago to meet the residents outside the corner shop, but I, like others do not wish to converse on a street corner but its O.k at my frout door. I will be voting for the party not the person.

Good article. More of this sort of stuff please. What about a few voices from the streets of Salford to go with the pictures?
