If you did not vote in the last election shame on you all you have got the Government you deserve. Unfortunately the rest of us have to suffer. The lack of interest in voting amazes me carry on drawing your benefits while you can you obviously dont care.

I'm f-ing furious about the nature and extent of some of the coalition cuts, and I'm conservative!

I'll try to make it, but good luck to everyone if I can't. I agree with the action although it's got to be said it won't make any difference. The unions in countries such as Italy and especially France are far more committed to their cause than the British and so are the people. They are willing to do whatever it takes to protect their rights, whereas the British will make a taken gesture of defiance before allowing the right wing media to turn public opinion against any serious ongoing action. You may think I'm defeatist, I prefer to think of myself as realistic. The trade unions and the Labour movement as a whole has never recovered from the Thatcher years when the trade unions were strong, but badly run and badly led. Fight the cuts? yes, but alternative strategies need to be put forward. There are other ways to tackle the deficit problem which, although not politically acceptable to some, would undoubtedly work. A true trade unionist has never asked for anything other than what they had a right to. These are the most savage cuts since the 1920s early 30s, check out, The Battle of Bexley Square, and don't let the political rhetoric persuade you that these cuts are fair, they are not. Most people across society may be affected, but the poor and the sick will be affected far more. This is the one of the true faces of the Tories, the Dems are just along for the ride, but would be just as ruthless. Good luck everyone, 'the lights are going out and we may not see them again in our lifetime'.

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.
