Martin Bell heads to Salford

Martin Bell to speak at Public Meeting in Salford

Former BBC correspondent,  Independent MP, anti-corruption champion Martin Bell has announced he will be speaking at a public meeting organised by the Hazel Must GO! campaign.

He will be joined by representatives from dozens of community groups and a representatives from trade unions and local people of all backgrounds. The campaign has been growing from strength to strength since Blears reselection back in June when she faced being disqualified to stand at the next General Election over her involvement in the recent expenses scandal.

During the crunch meeting to decide Blears’ future local people gathered outside Swinton Town Hall in a spontanious protest which received national media attention. The Campaign has since endorsements from Bob Crowe, Sue Bond and Ricky Tomlinson.

The meeting will take place at Salford Link, Chadwick Road in Eccles on Wednesday 16th September 2009 between 7pm and 9pm.

Items for discussion include discussing mounting a fair and democratic, people-led campaign to oust the current yet completely useless MP for Salford and Eccles.

It Seems Labour Aren’t So Sure About Salford…

Labour Party insiders tell us that Labour have now declared Salford to be a “marginal” seat for the next election. They’ve obviously realised the strength of feeling against Blears and plan to do everything to try and “reconnect” with the community. Basically, they’ve ignored us for years, but now defeat is a possibility they want to know what we think. Shameful!
For more on this and on Hazel’s own personal attempts to reconnect with you, the good people of Salford,  take a look at the Salford Star website.
