Some who followed Ken’s radical politics weren’t sure if they’d be welcome as they didn’t actually know him, but Ken’s family has made clear that they’d like to see people at the funeral.
Ken, a long-time socialist and anarchist, died aged 75 on 28th June this year.
For a long time he protested that “Salford Quays isn’t for Salford people” and questioned, like the Salford Star does today, where the jobs are for Salford people that are promised by redevelopers
In May 2012 the Liberal Democrats in Salford will face their fiercest attacks ever from Salford Labour.Cllr Merry will find every thing they can to drag their party down.We of course will be contesting seats within key Liberal Democrat wards,we carry no baggage,and i would presume labour will not attack us because they feel we don’t provide a threat.We can offer a choice to the people of this city and Liberal Democrats must realise we are the nearest they will get to what the party stood for before joining the Tories. Salford Conservatives will care little if you fail, the same goes for the National party i ask if any one wishes to join with us and fight Labour you are welcome.We have the ability to put out a message,and we are getting together new members to help canvass your area of choice. We meet each month and any one is welcome to come along to see if it’s what you want from a Political Group.
