SALFORD GENERAL ELECTION RESULTS
 

Star date: 7th May 2010

BARBARA KEELEY HOLDS WORSLEY AND ECCLES SOUTH 

Barbara Keeley has held onto her seat in Worsely with a majority of 3154 and 43% of the vote.

Boundary changes make comparisons with the last election pretty pointless as the constituency has changed drastically. But on a total vote of 41,884 (compared to 37,014 last election) her majority has been slashed to 4,337 from 9,368 at the last election. The turnout was 57.8% (53.3% last election).

Perhaps the first thing that Barbara can do when back at westminster is to ask about non executive board members of the Salford Royal Trust. In 2008 they filled out members interest it was a surprise to see none registered by a certain M.Halsall.(I'm fairly sure I saw him out campaigning with the newly elected member for Salford)Hazel Blears.

You know what, as much as I view the Conservative Party with utter contempt I actually feel slightly sorry for Iain Lindley. He appeared devastated on Friday morning at the count. I'm a little sorry I didn't get a chance to chat to him and wish him all the best - it's only polite. I didn't see much of Garsden, Townsend or Whitelegg, all newcomers to the Salford political scene. However I was astonished to read Friday's Manchester Evening News in which she was quoted taking the credit for all the campaigns which Iain himself was actually more involved with. Boasting loudly that her success was due to her involvement in the the North West Green Belt campaigns and St Saving Georges High School. From my own brief involvement with both as a member of Salford Green Party and Co-Chair of Salford Youth Council it's fair to say Iain has been at the forefront of these campaigns. I'd never vote Conservative but I have to say Iain put a LOT of work in, Keeley had an easy ride Compared with Blears I have always had a little more time for Barbara Keeley, I'll still work with her of course but I'm unimpressed by her comments. As Barbara was leaving the Worsley & Eccles count I shook her hand and congratulated her and she wished me all the best. Which is more than I can say for Blears who was so incredibly rude to her own fellow candidates, she refused to shake hands with anyone but the Conservative. She literally pushed me out of the way when I went to congratulate her. What a disgraceful way to treat a constituent, let alone a 'democratic opponent'. Blears was more than happy to exchange several firm but friendly handshakes with us at Salford Question Time a few weeks ago, there are photos somewhere. I'm glad it's all on film!

PEPPA PIG COMMUNISM GRAFFITI GOES SUBVERSIVE IN SALFORD

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
