It seems like Mr Moulding as got it in for Cllr Antrobus, i must admit it’s really funny to see the Pictures of the Derelict properties in Swinton North and Labour appear to have let those slip. Don’t do as i do do as i say the Labour motto?The sad part is Mr Moulding and Cap are old news Mr Hulton in Irlam as shown Cap for what they are.

SALFORD COUNCIL MILKS OLD AND ILL FOR £123,000
Salford Council is to introduce a charge of £3.50 a day for those who use its buses to attend day care centres – despite the service users stating that they couldn’t afford the charges.
The Council estimates that around 350 people use its transport around twice a week, meaning that some of Salford’s poorest people will have to find an extra £350 a year or more.
UK unemployment rose by 129,000 in the three months to September to 2.62 million, as youth unemployment rose above a million.
The jobless total for 16 to 24-year-olds hit a record of 1.02 million in the quarter and female unemployment was at its highest for 23 years.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the jobless rate hit 8.3%.
The number of people out of work and claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance rose by 5,300 to 1.6 million in October.
The news comes as the Bank of England’s governor Sir Mervyn King said Britain’s economy could stagnate until the middle of next year.
The Bank cut its 2011 and 2012 growth predictions to about 1%, warning the global economic outlook had “worsened”.
The news from the latest labour market figures is almost universally gloomy. It’s true that the rise in the claimant count (those signing on for Jobseeker’s Allowance) of 5,300 in October was less than expected and well within margins for error in a total of 1.6 million.
There were slightly fewer redundancies in the three months to September than in the previous three months. But record youth unemployment and the highest overall unemployment level since 1994 speak for themselves.
The number of workforce jobs is the lowest since 2004 despite the increase in population. Insufficient jobs are being created because of low growth and that seems unlikely to change next year.
The unemployment rate of 8.3% is the highest since 1996 and the total number of unemployed people the highest since 1994.
The number of women out of work increased by 43,000 to 1.09 million, the highest level since February 1988.
The unemployment rate was highest in the North East, at 11.6% and lowest in the South East at 6.3%.
Home Office ministers faced a fresh crisis last night after being rebuked for manipulating drug-seizure figures in an apparent attempt to generate good publicity for the embattled Border Agency. Sir Michael Scholar, the chairman of the UK Statistics Authority, condemned the department for a “highly selective” briefing to journalists which claimed that the amount of heroin and cocaine detected at ports and airports had soared – just days before properly audited figures showed seizures had fallen.
The row comes as Theresa May, the Home Secretary, faces a public battle with the former head of the border force, Brodie Clark, who has accused her of destroying his reputation.
