Star date: 29th July 2018

DONALD TRUMP DONE 'PIG' STYLE FOR SALFORD EXHIBITION

Top Salford artist Matt Carroll, known as part of the Central Station team that creatively invented the 'Madchester' style for Happy Mondays, Black Grape et al, has produced a new work depicting Donald Trump, pig style.

The painting, plus another work by Matt and sister Maria, called The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent, is currently being exhibited at Salford Museum and Art Gallery as part of the Salford Summer Show.

The inner and outer pig of US President Donald Trump has been depicted to perfection in a new work by ace Little Hulton artist, Matt Carroll, and is currently being exhibited at the Salford Summer Show at Salford Museum and Art Gallery.

Matt always has his finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist, shooting to fame as part of the Central Station team that creatively defined the fluorescent style of 'Madchester', with album covers for the likes of Happy Mondays, Black Grape and James, and graphics that lived on t-shirts and flyers throughout the world.

Later, he wazzed Friedrich Engels up for the 21st Century in a commission for the print issue of the Salford Star*, and, last year, Matt, together with sister Maria, exhibited their Ups and Downs show at Salford Museum and Art Gallery which captured the inner and outer mayhem going off in the city of late.** The Trump painting continues this style...

"Originally it was going to be just a complete minimal abstract painting made up of three blocks of colour to represent Trump" Matt tells the Salford Star "But in the end I decided to give it the two reference points of the Pig eye and the Pig mouth to make it more recognisably Trump..."

Quite.

Meanwhile, Matt and Maria also have another painting in the Salford Summer Show, entitled The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent, which kind of says it all.

The Salford Summer Show: The Open [1] is part of the Salford Royal Academy Takeover at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, and runs until November.


The Trump painting is for sale at £2,500, while The Isolation of a Pencil Sharpener in a Desert of Discontent is priced at £600.

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
