Today, Peel Holdings/Peel Group, under the names of two of its companies, Manchester Ship Canal Developments Ltd and Peel Investments (North) Ltd, failed to get an immediate possession order to evict the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp.

At the Manchester Civil Justice Centre this morning, the judge rejected the argument from Peel's barrister for the need gain a possession order as quickly as possible, and adjourned the hearing until 10:30am on March 6th to give the Barton Moss protectors more time to get their defence case together.

However, the judge would not allow oral evidence to be heard at the forthcoming trial, only written witness statements.

Speaking outside the Court after the case, Vanda from the Camp told the Salford Star "This was the outcome we expected and needed and we're all going to go away and discuss what we are going to do to defend our side."

The adjournment means that this Sunday's anti-fracking carnival – Gig At The Rig – will definitely go ahead…

The people who are against the protestors on Irlam Moss should keep in mind they were Like minded people who run down the protesters who wanted bans on the dumping of Untreated Nuclear Waste/ The H Bomb/The Vietnam War/ Nuclear bombs on Greenham Commen /Anti Aparthied/ Etc/ Money Mad Torys and their Governments called them the Looney Left/The Don't Look so Looney Now/PS The Head of EXXON who stated Fracking was safe is suing a Fracking Company who has started Fracking near his Home/ Fracking is very dangerous if you cannot see that go back to school.

The courts seem to be the only thing between a police state. These are such dangerous times and we REALLY need to wake up and stop this. Our "police" force is completely out of control.

All these assaults on the public by the police] Maybe that's why this Self serving government are taking away our Rights And Access To Legal Aid / Never forget the Torys and some of the Royals were the Biggest Admirers of Adolph Hitler in his early years / Imprisonment for Trade Unionists/ Protestors / etc / Some Torys are still admirers of Latin American Dictators/ The protester's on the moss are doing the people of the UK A great Service This dispicable government and Tax Evading iffy Concerns like Peel Estates are doing the exact opposite/

Hi everyone. Solidarity to you all. You are doing our country proud. We need to protect our land from this dangerous money making fracking. The people do not want fracking. Why should we all step back and let government corporations destroy our land and environment. We live on a tiny island and the land is already suffering from earthquakes and holes 25ft deep just appearing. We don't need further problems from fracking when there is so many different energy resources we could use. As for the police. I have watched all of the videos and I have to say I was not only shocked to the core but sickened to the pit of my stomach. There behaviour was not that of a police officers as I thought police were meant to keep the peace not intimidate, bully, and physically assault innocent peaceful protesters!!! The police should be up on charges for their violent attacks on innocent protesters. I was mortified at the state of the protesters after being attacked by the police. Blood, bruises and God knows what else. The world is watching them. They need to stop their thuggery and violence. It is not the way the police should be run. Sending lots of love and hugs from Runcorn. Solidarity comrades♥♡♥♡♥

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
