HAZEL BLEARS HUMILIATED BY PRIME MINISTER
 

HAZEL ROASTED BY GORDON

Star Date: May 20 2009

Gordon Brown last night totally roasted Hazel Blears in front of the whole country, saying on the national news that her behaviour was "totally unacceptable"…


There's been the bath towel and tv scandal of Hazel Blears' expenses but it was her non payment of Capital Gains Tax on the £45,000 profit she made when selling her pad in Kennington in 2004 that finally brought the public wrath of Gordon Brown down on Hazel's tattered image last night.

During the Prime Minister's press conference he was asked about Hazel and thundered "It was totally unacceptable behaviour. I do not support it…"

He continued "Hazel Blears has paid the money back. She has done so on the advice of me and other people. But she has not broken the law, she has not broken the rules."

Just "totally unacceptable behaviour"…

While other naughty MPs are being de-selected by their local political parties all over the country, in Salford the Labour Party has said that they're sticking by Hazel…

It's always been said that the Labour Party could put a donkey up for election in Salford and it would get in, now it looks like they've got a genuine one…

Avoiding Capital Gains Tax is rather more serious than horse manure and glitter toilet seats. Brown describes it as unacceptable but she says that he has full confidence in her. Strange. If you were to burgle £13k from a house then hand it back, is that OK? If other MPs are suspended for claiming on already-cleared mortgages what is the difference? Hazel Blears. Superhero.

Hazel should've been de-selected by the local Labour Party (or even done the decent thing by stepping down herself) but since she will be Labour's candidate for Salford and Eccles at the next General Election I'm increasingly looking forward to standing against her as an anti-Hazel Independent.

If Hazel Blears had any morals she would resign immediately. The only reason she has repaid the CGT is because she was forced into it. In my opinion this amounts to fraud !!

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL POLICY BITES SALFORD COUNCIL ON BUM DAYS AFTER IT RECOGNISED 'PUBLIC CONCERN'

Just a few days after Salford City Council bemoaned "there has been widespread public concern about...the large number of schemes that have provided no affordable housing at all", a new 14 storey apartment scheme in Greengate seeking planning permission will not be providing any affordable housing at all – thanks to Salford City Council policy!

The application has already met with objections from Blueprint Studio and owners and residents of nearby buildings about the impact on the character of the area.
