As for the number of Labour Councillors who will get a meal and ticket it will be free,well more than likely paid for by you and me. They used to have a free season tickets in member services,i wonder with a bigger ground capacity will that perk still apply?
Sad really that we should soon see the mass exodus of the working class and poor from London.A city built on the blood and sweat of many soon to be taken over by those who are lucky enough to have JOBS!! to be honest this really sums up the mind set of the Tories a Party that would have let Liverpool die.
Shadow Health Minister Diane Abbott has apologised for any offence caused by comments she made on Twitter, after claims they were racist.
She said she had not meant to generalise when she wrote: ”White people love playing ‘divide & rule’“.
It’s issues like this that worry me,we live in a PC world in fear of what we say in case we offend and she makes statements like this. One rule for one?
To be honest where do the kids go?Labour for as long as i can remember have offered nothing in relation to amenities,jobs well when labour where in power they failed on that one and the Tories don’t class Northern kids as worth bothering with. The parents are more than likely to be kids themselves and the Schools let so many slip the net it’s freighting. The Social housing estates for many people have become areas of crime and vandalism and the reality is there is nothing much for these kids to do but drink cheap supermarket beer and cause trouble. Perhaps it’s time that some one took notice,i think the likes of Labour and the Tories reject out of hand people who don’t have the power to vote. They forget that these kids are our future Thatcher let one Generation die,can we afford another? i wonder when we look for the real reasons for the riots,should we not be looking a little closer to home.
Salford University spent £132,000 on a logo which claims it is in Manchester, i cannot understand that a University that faces a short fall in income and as to sack staff could pay this for a Logo. I wonder if the idiot that sanctioned it owns up?he should go down the Road with the staff that are being forced out. This is why people lose jobs Top heavy management over paid and bloody useless. I wonder will the Labour Council Leader have any thing to say? doubt it.
The City Council has been allocated 20 places for hospitality, two of which will be taken by the Mayor and Mayoress leaving 18 places available. An itinerary will be available nearer the time, but it is anticipated that you would need to be at the stadium approximately 2 and a half hours before the kick off for welcome, introductions, meal and pre-match build up.Any views?
When you invest in some thing you always seek a return,i wonder when will Cllr Merry and is colleagues’ be able to show us something from all the large scale investment of our cash within the city.
And of course public wellbeing, i look with interest to see any real stimulus within the city,but apart from the large influx of economic migrants i am a little concerned as to who is really flocking to the area to take up the challenge of a new era Labour always seem to promise us. The lack of willingness to debate unless the debate takes shape within a Labour filled room worries me as to the real confidence Labour have as to there success. Any one living within the city should be asking why do we have crime taking shape relative to the tragedy in ordsall .How long ago was one man blasted to death in a local pub,it seems that took little media interest, and of course that was not isolated. Are we so deflated and apathetic to allow Labour to go on unchallenged with out any one showing a little concern?.Perhaps we should be asking these people questions and see do the answers stack up.
“If there indeed is a north/south divide, then the Northerners have brought it upon themselves. I mean, for God’s sake, they keep ferrets and whippets, they wear flat caps and they eat pies with mushy peas. It’s disgusting. And they don’t seem to have developed a love affair with 4×4 vehicles, or Chelsea Tractors, as we affectionately refer to them. Those people ride buses and trains all the time and the only time culture impinges on their miserable existences is when they come to Wembley for the cup final.”
On Twitter, however, the former deputy prime minister John Prescott said: “Glasman. You know sod all about politics, economic policy, Labour or solidarity. Bugger off and go ‘organise’ some communities!”
Glasman – often described by the media as Miliband’s intellectual guru and creator of the so-called Blue Labour movement within the party – has revealed his frustration at the way Miliband performed last year, claiming he concentrated too much on preventing party division and defending Labour’s “toxic economic record” rather than offering a transformative new leadership.
Someone who speaks the truth?it’s about time someone stood back and looked at the reality of New Labour or Blue Labour what ever it calls it’s self today.The reality is Labour are standing in the side lines and shouting but offer nothing in real terms on how they would deal with the issues.Labour are a spent force a ship without a rudder gaining votes on the principle that the Condems are Bad and we are not as Bad.Where do we go? the Liberal Democrats offered choice but they have all but killed the party with crawling into bed with the Tories. If apathy within our Towns and Cities continue we will have little to choose from besides a party that butchers services to satisfy it’s backbone the rich or a Party with no ideas or credibility to it’s name.
