GRAHAM STRINGER IN BROUGHTON
 

Star date: 7th May 2010

STRINGER GAINS BROUGHTON FOR THE MANCS

Graham Stringer eased his way into Salford with a 12,303 majority in the new ward of Blackley and Broughton in the late, late General Election result announced in the very early hours of this morning.

Many have questioned why Salford places like Broughton and Kersal  have been thrown in with Manchester wards Cheetham, Crumpsall and Harpurhey, so much so that the count was at Manchester Town Hall. Now Stringer's job is to prove to  people that he knows where Salford is and can empathise with our problems. Otherwise it's just another Manc takeover…

Full result here…


BLACKLEY AND BROUGHTON RESULT


Graham Stringer: Labour – 18,563
James Edsberg: Tory – 6,260
William Hobhouse: Lib Dem – 4861
Kay Phillips: Respect – 996
Bob Willescroft: UKIP – 894
Shafiq-Uz-Zaman: Christian Party -161
Derek Adams: BNP – 2469

Turnout: 49.44%

There is a bit of an "anti-manc" vibe yes but it's sentimental and it's hardly as if Salford as a City in it's own right is being dissolved. People in Eccles are just as upset about loosing their constituency to Salford & Eccles and Worsley & Eccles South. Ian Stewart was popular. One of the underlying reasons Blears' was nominated for de-selection last June. The ridiculous thing is - the new boundaries of are defined by the banks if the River Irwell, based on the 'population decline' with so many homes being demolished (yet marked for regeneration). The population of Broughton has dropped by 40% in recent years, but there is a predicted growth in population It would make a lot of sense to restore four former constituencies of Eccles, Worsley, Salford East & Salford West if not Worsley, Eccles and Salford. Blackley should be 'Manchester North'. It seems the majority of Parliamentary candidates agree on the boundary change issue, except Blears!)

Broughton and Kersal belong in SALFORD. The only consolation to the good people of the biggest part of East Salford subjected to 'the Stringer invasion' is the ousting of Blears. Strangely enough most of them have no idea who represents them now!

What is the problem with Manchester on here? I enjoy reading this website and wish the Star all the best, but really, maybe this anti-Manc vibe is part of the reason Salford lags behind in so many ways?

Strange something Manchester council are doing....elsewhere Sale East has become Sale East and Wythenshawe...another Manchester invasion perhaps? As much as a candidate may be worthy, how is a candidate expected to manage to completely different areas, run by different councils and divided over different matters? What happened to local people running the show?

Graham is a brilliant MP, and the Majority in the 2005 election was just over 12,000. He will do a brilliant job representing Kersal and Broughton. He has the experience and the passion to represent his constituents!

TENSION, 'BULLYING' AND POLITICAL DOG FIGHTING IN LOCAL ELECTION CONTEST

While the local election campaigns around Salford are pretty mild at the moment, in the Claremont ward it's all kicking off, with the LibDem candidate, Stef Lorenz, accusing Labour Party supporters of 'bullying', and the authorities of complicity.

Stef has been blocked from putting up posters in the local Height Library for a jumble sale and art auction in aid of restoring the old Height Youth Club, been forced to stand down as chair of that campaign and has been met with a volley of political abuse on social media. What's going on?
