On the day Gordon Brown officially declared the General Election will take place on May 6th, our candidate (David Henry) for the newly created constituency of Salford and Eccles launches his campaign blog.
David will be standing with electoral support from the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (T.U.S.C) under the banner of “Hazel Must Go” – the socialist alternative to the Blairite, war-warmongering, bank-bailing New Labour candidate Hazel Blears.
Keep reading both this site as well as David’s blog for all the latest news and articles as we support him on the campaign trail…
This evening the people of Salford will be able to select an alternative parliamentary candidate to challenge Hazel Blears at the next General Election, backed by this campaign.
Since November we have called on ordinary, local people to come forward and put their names on the list. We’ve had quite a lot of interest, but as you can understand running for parliament in one of the most closely contended seats in the country is no easy task.
We are pleased to announce Alec McFadden, Rachel Cavendish and David Henry will be speaking at a public meeting this evening – putting the voices of the people of Salford & Eccles back on the agenda.
The meeting will start at 7pm, Thursday 4th Jan 2010 at the Old Pint Pot Pub, off Salford Crescent.

Campaigners hand-delivered an “Open Letter” to Hazel Blears at her constituency office in Salford this afternoon. In September the Hazel Must Go campaign gave Hazel an ultimatum to step down by the 31st October or face a community challenge.
The letter outlines a 10-point manifesto and an explaination of what the campaign is all about.
