SALFORD STAR WEBSITE OF THE YEAR!

The Salford Star has won the Website of the Year award from the respected, left leaning Lipstick Socialist blog site. Other winners included PCS trade union leader, Mark Serotka and the Spanish Miners.

The Salford Star has won the Website of the Year award presented by the well respected Lipstick Socialist blog site…

The Salford Star… "maybe not so well known outside the north west but it should be!" the citation states "…it is in the tradition of the local radical press of the 1970s and sits firmly on the side of the working class of Salford.

"Over the last year it has exposed the villainy of Salford Council and the new Mayor of Salford in their support for the interests of big business against those of the people of Salford" it adds "Not just featuring politics, the Star aims to educate and inform its readers about art, history and sport. Always cheeky and sometimes hilarious, it is on its own in trying to address the major issues, including the bankruptcy of local politics, and the struggle by people to hold onto the important things in life, including decent services and jobs."

We like that!

In other categories, Mark Serotka of PCS won Trade Unionist of the Year, the Spanish Miners' Strike won Most Hopeful Event of the Year and Campaign of the Year was won by disabled people fighting back against ConDem Government cuts.

What?!? No photo of the Mayor?!? Normally a Salford good news story would have him over like a flash to spinjack some reflected PR glory. Anyway, if the council is one of the worst things about living in Salford, the Star is one of the best. Real local colour. The award is well deserved, congratulations to everyone there.
