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'.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

Before a full meeting of Salford Council this morning, residents campaigning against development on green spaces in the city held a demonstration outside the Civic Centre.

Representatives of campaigns including from Campbell Road, Duncan Matheson, Walkden and Buile Hill Park then went into the meeting to hear City Mayor, Paul Dennett, say that the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was "protecting green belt and green spaces", after Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood had accused the Council of "throwing residents to the wolves of rampant development".
