Well John i am shocked no one had the guts to do the decent thing. One Labour seat down in 2010 all ready. I can see martin bell licking his lips. This really shows Labour for what it is, the people will turn on you with a vengeance.
As the vultures come out, and people call for blood i eagerly await the result. Will Labour have the B—ls to dump Hazel?

Research reveals that that over the last 12 months those who have been hit hardest are those with no skills at all with the sector with the highest rate of unemployment being ‘Unskilled’ at 28%.
The ‘Sales and Customer Services’ sector saw a 16% increase in unemployment with ‘Skilled Trades’ (engineers, technicians) following closely behind at 13%. Despite recent suggestions that this is a ‘white-collar’ recession, the report shows otherwise, with only a 5% loss of jobs in unemployment in this sector.
However, in the long term, the UK jobs market is likely to continue to grow despite the recent rise in unemployment figures. A more optimistic picture is projected for the labour market to 2017. The greatest increase in jobs is still likely to be in retail and business services, including computing and financial services. There are likely to be around 872,000 job openings for senior managers alone. Other higher level occupations are also likely to be in high demand, along with healthcare workers and personal service professionals, including hairdressers, childcare workers and carers. And benefiting to the tune of nearly 900,000 jobs includes recruitment agencies and security services.

A MAJOR union is urging its members to campaign to get Hazel Blears ousted as an MP.
The Salford branch of UNISON, which has thousands of members in the city – many of whom work for the council – issued an official statement today.
In it, branch secretary, Ray Walker says: “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.
”We would like trade union branches, residents and community groups and individuals to join our campaign – Hazel must go.”
He said the campaign was not aligned to any political party.
The union is holding its annual conference this week and General Secretary, Dave Prentis, threatened to suspend funding from the Labour Party. The union is the party’s second largest donor.
But Mr Prentis said the union was ‘tired of feeding the hand that bites them.’
Ms Blears, who was today spotted having her roots coloured at Claritys salon in Manchester, is expected to face a noisy demonstration when she attends a meeting tonight of her constituency party at which she faces a vote of no confidence.
She is expected to survive the motion but can expect a tough grilling, especially from members of the Swinton ward who are known to be angry over her conduct.

Go down tonight and john the demo. i wish i could but it’s not PC Personally have labour got the balls to do it, And if they did who do you think they would put in her place?
