In councillor O’Niell’s world those of us who work hard for a living and buy goods with our earnings are as much to blame for being robbed as those who steal from us. The message from Cllr. O’Neill is ‘don’t buy anything nice with the money – it you do then it’s your fault that you’ve been burgled’.
As it happens I’m too busy paying my mortgage to own anything that would make my neighbours especially envious, but I cannot believe that anyone councillor O’Neill represents would share his views (unless they happen to be burglars).
O’Neill has shown that he’s out of touch, just as he crossed the boundaries of acceptable behaviour with his Nazi slur – he should resign.
Edit: as a couple of posters have pointed out – it is possible to construe cllr. O’Neill’s post in two different ways, and it is quite possible, and indeed probable that his post did not come out as intended. If this is the case, and I have indeed mistaken his intent then I apologise unreservedly for my mistake. As Confucious once said: ‘in literature, clarity is everything’.
Do you not think its Sad,well in four years a have fought hard and achieved results, Prior to the council i worked as an Appropriate adult along with my full time work, visiting Local Police stations helping any one who needed my help, all levels of our community.I helped to clear the Black Harry, Fit Benches and plants and Establish the Cutting of the Fields,Fight so many cases over the past years i have lost count. But now i support Burglers and should resign? I wish these so called intellectuals sat back and smelt what the real world was like.I see he offers an apology but sadly i bet the post stands.I am unsure who is really out of touch.Perhaps the residents will decide that point?
I visit the valley on a regular basis two days ago i was informed of more burglaries taking place. To put it in one word i felt incensed i tried to say if people thought about what they bought and asked questions perhaps the people who commit the crimes would have no one to sell their ill gotten gains to and the crime my reduce in an ideal world.What saddens me is a view i have just read on one Salford Liberal Democrat Blog. I suggest you read it and it may give you some idea of the person. I for one felt dismay this person had been the victim of this type of crime.He may think of me what he wishes but i would not wish this disgusting crime on my worst enemy. I for one was glad to see the council sponsored DNA marker pens. I do not wish to take this any further,people can read into my comments what they wish.If we still have the right to comment.I would ask the people in Swinton South One question if you have needed help what quarter it as come from?
I Believe they have someone one for the valley crimes shame it was not a week earlier when two young girls where robbed. I wonder do these people understand what it’s like to come home to your house and finding some scum bag as been in.I Have faced the experience when we lived in Broughton, The sad part is are the people who buy all the goodies don’t forget you are as much to blame for the rise in this crime.
Funny when i wrote this post i was blaming the people who buy stolen goods, but according to The Liberal Democrats i am blaming the Victims for buying goods? I am at a loss on how some Liberals Minds work. According to them i should resign? well i think i will take a chance at the Ballot Box and put forward my record If that ok.

House-building to hit lowest levels since 1923 as housing waiting lists hit record high
The number of new homes built in England and Wales in 2009/10 will slump to its lowest level since 1923 – fuelling fears that a chronic shortage of housing will leave millions of people trapped in overcrowded and substandard housing for a generation to come, warns the Federation.
The National Housing Federation has forecast that house-builders are on course to build just 122,700 homes between April 2009-March 2010, 18,000 fewer than were built over the previous financial year, as a result of private developers scaling back developments following the onset of the recession.
The house-building figures for 2009/10 will be the lowest total since 1923/4, when just 86,000 homes were built, if the war years are excluded. It will be the second successive year that numbers have fallen significantly, after 2008/9 saw only 140,950 homes built, compared to 176,660 the year before.
