No Richard what’s the French word when you feel you have been here before. I don’t wish to live under a Government that feels it should go on a moral crusade to shrink the state. Sit back and look at how the cuts have started to effect the people that you wanted to represent. Free school meals, Bus passes.Free swimming vat-state benefits, the sick the aged the jobless. no mention of the people who swindle millions in tax or the bankers. You can only blame Labour for so much. Yes i agree with you about Salfords Labour run council but that fight will come. I lived through thatcher i never felt i would see the British people vote for that again.In four years from now the Tories will be hated just like the days of thatcher the Liberals will be finished, but what i fear the most is what is to become of the people. If i never see inside a council chamber again nothing will stop me fighting for what i believe in and i will always despise conservatism.

Most of the North-West of England has now been subjected to a hosepipe ban as resevoir levels fall; this is in spite of record-breaking rainfall in Cumbria late last year. Hulme Green Party candidate Gayle O’Donovan stated that both individual consumers and United Utilities had a role to play in managing water conservation.
Speaking on BBC’s Radio Manchester Gayle said that there were a number of things consumers could do to reduce water wastage, including low-flow dual flush toilets and harvesting rainwater. She also said it was important to conserve water on an on-going basis not just at times like these as we are experiencing changing weather patterns and this is likely to become more frequent.
Gayle later spoke of the need for United Utilities, the North-West’s water company, to do much more to tackle water leaks.
She said “Out of every four gallons which is supposed to come out of our taps, one gallon is lost.
They lose nearly 500million litres of water a year due to leaks(old pipes, not reacting quickly enough to tackle leaks etc). Unites Utilities is the 3rd worse company for leaks in the country despite bringing in massive profits(500 million pre-tax per yr).”
PS: United Utilities have been in the news recently for other matters: see article here published in ‘The Mule’
