Stories like this really highlight Salford Labour in a nutshell

Three years ago, at a time of huge cuts, Salford City Council handed £300,000 to the Manchester International Festival as sponsorship for the Biospheric Foundation’s `innovative city farm’ in Blackfriars, with Salford Mayor Ian Stewart announcing that it was “money well spent”. Another £100,000 came via the Festival itself.

Now, the Community Interest Company which ran the Biospheric Project has gone bust with debts of over £100,000, including £46,893 owed to Salford Council. There’s also stories of dead fish, starving chickens, community equipment being held to ransom or wrecked, and exploitation of volunteers.

If it’s not one white elephant project going down there is another lining up for our tax pounds,all this while Aldi turf out veg at 19p a packet.
