SALFORD STAR FUNDING APPEAL
 

Star date: 22nd June 2010  

NO EVIDENCE FOR REFUSING SALFORD STAR FUNDING

This morning, Salford Star's appeal to Salford City Council's Cabinet was deferred until July.

Salford Star had appealed against Salford City Council's ruling that the community centred magazine didn't meet its criteria for funding because it was `overtly political' and `unbalanced'. Councillors noted that in the officers' reports there was no proper evidence submitted to back this up.

Officers now have until the next Cabinet meeting to provide serious proof that the Salford Star is `overtly political' and `unbalanced'.

I agree totally. Even the famous George Monbiot highlighted the Salford Star as one of few truly independent local papers fiercely promoting Salford and standing up for people's rights - plus - and this is the biggest plus - the Star is produced by yer actual citizens of Salford. It's not produced by professional journalists who live in Cheshire. It holds the powerful to account! that's what local media should do.

And it would be a lot cheaper than a certain Orchestra that is looking really good value for money now!

I discovered Salford Star about 6 months ago. My impression is that it is a fearless publication dedicated to exposing corruption and incompetence by those who rule us. It also supports the City of Salford and it's people, giving a voice to those who otherwise would go unheard. It promotes the positive aspects of Salford too, giving much needed publicity and support to local artist(es). As for being "unbalanced", of course there is a lot of criticism of a "Labour" Council. They are the ones in power, and making all the decisions! Maybe if that same Council spent more time getting it right, there would be nothing to criticise? I truly worry about the (almost total) lack of Democracy and accountabilty in this great City of ours. SUPPORT THE SALFORD STAR!

Tomorrow night, Thursday 26th April at 7pm, there's going to be a further public meeting at De La Salle Sports Club to reignite opposition to a proposed huge housing development on the Duncan Matheson Playing Fields, off Lancaster Road.

Over four thousand people have already signed a petition, as Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, seems to have done a u-turn, from originally opposing the development to supporting building on the playing fields.

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?
