Meanwhile, Swinton Councillor Heather Fletcher, who lives in the Kersal ward, went much further on a Facebook post, accusing Jonny Wineberg of being “economical with the truth“, and, Donald Trump style, accusing the Salford Star of ‘supporting the Independent candidate’ (see screenshot).
When Salford Star editor, Stephen Kingston, responded that the Star never tells anyone how to vote, nor endorses any candidate, the Labour councillor responded “I heard that the Salford Star paid for the Independent candidate’s leaflets”… (the Salford Star can’t even afford to pay to get its own magazine out!).
Grasping at straws? the star struggles hand to mouth where did the councillor hear this piece of news? i would love to hear the answer,.
