Star date: 8th December 2017

COMMUNITY REVOLUTION PARTY TO STAND CANDIDATE IN IRLAM

A new Community Revolution Party, or CO:RE, launched in Irlam and Cadishead last night with a candidate set to stand in the Irlam ward at the next local elections in May.

CO:RE states that it aims "to give the community more control of matters which concern them the most...a community driven, revolutionary journey to get you the representation you deserve".

Amidst the traffic chaos, the farcical Barton Lifting Bridge wrangles and plans to build thousands of houses on the green belt, a new political party launched in Irlam and Cadishead last night called Community Revolution Party, or CO:RE, confirming that it's standing a candidate in Irlam at next May's local election.

CO:RE aims ďto give the community more control of matters which concern them the most...a community driven, revolutionary journey to get you the representation you deserveĒ.

The area has a history of grass roots activism, with the Community Action Party ousting Labour Councillor, Roger Jones, during the congestion charge 'debate' in 2008. Roger Jones subsequently won back his Irlam seat but faces competition from CO:RE, which has no connection to the Community Action Party.

CO:RE's candidate for Irlam is Darren Goulden, one of the forces behind the group Planning for Our Future in Irlam and Cadishead, which has been leading the community fightback against Salford Council and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) plans to build thousands of houses on the area's green belt.

Through the community backlash against green belt development, both in Salford and elsewhere, GM Mayor, Andy Burnham, is re-drawing the 'GM Spatial Framework'.

As that issue simmers, residents have been furious about the traffic congestion in the area, compounded by the legal row between Salford City Council and Peel Holdings over who is paying for the operation and maintenance of the new Barton Lifting Bridge.

"Having lived in the area for nearly all of my fifty years I couldn't see the area and the people ignored any longer, enough is enough" says Darren Goulden "We need a new way of doing things, a new party that can represent the community properly with the community at its heart.

"We need to revolutionise local politics, bring in better, more modern ways of communicating with the younger generation and the community as a whole" he adds "We deserve better. This is our community, this is our livelihoods, this is our future and it's time someone stood up to make this change happen, that is what I intend to do."

A statement from CO:RE adds: "For too long the communities of Irlam and Cadishead have been left feeling let down and under-represented in local government, relying on others to carry the baton.

"It's time for change, it's time to revolutionise community politics" it insists "We want to give the community the chance to control their own destiny. We feel this is how democracy should work - discussed, debated and decisions made by the people, for the people. With core values established from the outset we will ensure the community remains central in everything we achieve, with policies and a manifesto written by the community for the community.

"It's clear the traditional models of top down governance are no longer fit for purpose" it adds "We are clear as a party that in our community, decisions should be made closer to the people affected by them. We want to give our community their voice back and ensure they have the representation they deserve.  We want to give this community the chance to control its own destiny..."

Hi Cadishead Girl, myself and Darren have formed CO:RE with intention of becoming a registered party. This year though, with limited funds, we felt money would be better spent on campaigning rather than the cost of registering a party, if we can bring success as Independents then we know CO:RE can grow. Walk before we run. Hope this makes sense.

Cadishead girl has hit the nail on its head;groups such as CORE, are an incoherent group of individuals , not a disicplined political party! How would CORE handle differences of opinion amongst its eleÁted councillors? How would CORE councillors vote on matters not related to Cadishead?

Thanks for that retired socialist. Does anyone know if CORE plan to do this? Prefer to vote for a political party rather than an independent because one persons independent might not be another's??? I remember the Community Action Party!! They were terrible!!!

Unless you are registered as a political party by the electoral commission you are put down as independent,

If these guys are standing as CORE, why are they down as Independents??

i've just had their leaflet through the door. the local labour councillors in irlam and cadishead have been too complacent for a long time now. they've been more interested in maintaining the existing political balance than addressing what matters to the residents. marcus graham will be getting my vote

Could be a good move. Wasn't this the area where they got rid of Roger Jones on the congestion charge issue?

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CANíT GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAULíS CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

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.
