SPICER WINS `EXIT STAGE LEFT' SALFORD STAR MARY BURNS AWARD
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the annual Salford Star Mary Burns Awards, which are given out to honour the most deserving individuals and organisations in the city for their stupid statements, dodgy dealings and iffy activities over the past 12 months.
This year we have another new category, the `Exit Stage Left' Award for which there were two contenders – Martin Vickers, Salford Council's Strategic Director, and Chief Executive Barbara Spicer. But the judges decided there could be only one winner. So dry yer tears and wave yer hankies for quit queen Barbara Spicer.
This way down the red carpet please…
