FIVE WAYS TO AVOID THE ROYAL WEDDING

The official obituary reads: PUBLIC SERVICES – died in the Houses of Parliament, London after contracting a terminal illness on the 20th October 2010. Much loved by the public of the United Kingdom, they will be fondly remembered by all. 

It adds that the Public Services Funeral and Wake will be an opportunity `to share your experiences and memories of those dearly loved and lost'. The Obituary goes on to list the passing away of Welfare, Children's Services, Education, Immigration, the NHS and the Arts – listing in detail the ConDem Government cuts.

…`The NHS is on its deathbed, aged 63, after a brutal attack by Andrew Lansley. Unable to recover from cuts of £20billion, and cuts of 50,000 jobs within its service, the NHS went into terminal decline, leaving longer waiting times and inadequate patient care'…

`Welfare passed away after…brutal cuts to council tax benefit of £490million a year and disability living allowance by 20%, leaving families in destitution'

The Funeral and Wake begins at Manchester Town Hall with some speeches and is to be followed by a sombre parade down Oxford Road, Stretford Road and into Hulme.

"A lot of us obviously feel very strongly about such harsh cuts being made
to areas within the public sector that are already vulnerable" says one of the undertaker organisers "We feel it is not only unneccesary, but also cruel, with the worst off being affected the most, as is often the case.

"We have chosen to stage a funeral to show the irony of the situation" he adds "While a few get to celebrate a tax payer funded, exuberant occasion, the rest of society is left to pick up the pieces of a selfish and ignorant government. And if the government thinks that one day of street parties and a royal wedding will make us forget what they are doing to us, they are very much mistaken."

I sincerely hope this Wake will be the focal point for a determined fight back against this vicious , evil torycon thatcherite bastard government , and the pathetic , inadequate local council toadies ,who are implementing the cuts in a disgraceful manner . I would love to hang the lot of the traitorous scum .And I would pay for the rope.

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.
