Lobby of Salford CLP: Hazel survives for now

Last’s night lobby of the Salford Constituency Labour Party meeting where there was a motion of no confidence in Hazel Blears went off really well. The motion, which could only be voted on by a small committee of Labour members, rather than the whole of the constituency party, was defeated, meaning Hazel Blears survives for now.

It did get the campaign really good coverage though. In the first week of the campaign, we’ve been on most national TV news and all the national newspapers. Its clear that the people of Salford don’t want Hazel as there MP and we can use this launch to make that wish a reality. So join the campaign, collect signatures on the petition and lets keep the pressure up.

Below is a selection of the news coverage of the protest. If you find anymore, email it to blearsmustgo@gmail.com and we can post it up.

Founding Statement

Over the last few weeks Hazel Blears has shown that she is no longer fit to represent the people of Salford.

In the wake of extravagant expenses claims and avoidance of Capital Gains Tax we believe that she has abused the system, which we find morally and ethically disgusting.

Hazel Blears resigned from the Cabinet (in the most undignified way) but she is still our MP and says that she intends standing at next year’s General Election.

It is down to us, her constituents, to make our feelings known and force her to resign as MP for Salford. Right here. Right now!

We would like trade union branches, residents and community groups and individuals to join our campaign – Hazel Must Go!

Together we can demand justice for the people of Salford.
• The Hazel Must Go Campaign is not aligned to any political party
• The Hazel Must Go Campaign is backed by the Salford Star plus many other Salford residents and groups
