MANCHESTER PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLY SUGGESTIONS FOR TORY BUDGET TAXES ON SANTA AND CARING THOUGHTS

Market Street in Manchester City Centre became a showcase for Tory Government pre-budget suggestions this afternoon, with 'Theresa May' and 'Philip Hammond' liking the idea of taxing everything from the northern rain to Santa himself.

It was all part of a Bodge The Budget performance from Manchester People's Assembly, and a pre-amble to the organisation's big Eve of Budget Rally to Shine A Light On Tory Failure, this Tuesday 21st November at 6:30pm, at GMex.

Christmas shoppers on Market Street in Manchester City Centre - right in the midst of the den of festive capitalist iniquity - got a whiff of the true Tory Government this afternoon, as performers from Manchester People's Assembly took to a soapbox to ask for pre-budget suggestions.

'Theresa May' and 'Philip Hammond' screeched through a loud speaker, with cheerleading from the 'Queen' and 'Bono', to goad passers-by with some novel ideas for new taxes and tax cuts...

"Rain will be taxed" insisted 'Theresa' "We all know that it never rains down south; we're all fine, but you northerners will need to pay for it, why should you get all the rain and not be taxed?

"While I will pay to not get old" she added "All of you, when you are old...well, it's your own fault! We're also very aware that if you are wearing hats and jumpers it means you are not using your heating at home...so, we are taxing those. We are also taxing cuddling up and caring thoughts..."

In the background were Theresa's 'magic money tree' and a signpost to Paradise Papers havens, as 'Hammond' decided that flights to the Cayman Islands, Jersey and the Isle of Man would not be taxed. And champagne would now be the subject of tax relief...

"We believe it's an essential part of everyone's diet, so at our conference next year we'll be having a lot more champagne that will allow us to get a lot more merry, especially the interns" he slurped "We get excited by the idea that they will get very drunk... unfortunately to pay for that we're going to have to tax other things..."

Suggestions included taxing young children, cute puppies and kittens, daylight and... Santa...

"...We cannot have foreign people coming into our country and giving gifts to the British people without being taxed" he decided. Wrapping presents with Scotch tape will also be taxed as... "Obviously it comes from Scotland and they are all deviants... we want everyone to go back to using English Sellotape..."

The agitprop style Bodge The Budget street show drew laughter and applause from shoppers, and helped to publicise a bigger and more serious Eve of Budget protest at 6:30pm this Tuesday 21st November on the steps of GMex to Shine A Light On Tory Failure.

"The Tories have come out of the election and meekly said that austerity is over; we want them to show their hand and really prove it with the budget, which we don't think they're going to do" explained John Graham from the People's Assembly "It's a lie and we want to draw attention to that.

"Today we were collecting Tory ideas for the budget, like taxing daylight and clouds, while reducing tax on flights to the Cayman Islands; things that benefit rich people" he added "The public response has been great."

GMCA TRIES TO AVOID VEHICLE CHARGES FOR CLEAN AIR ZONES

Today, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is meeting to discuss options for reducing air pollution in the region.

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
