My friend David Henry selected as ''Hazel Must Go" candidate against Blears

My friend David Henry has been selected by the community in Salford who want to kick out their expenses scandal dogged MP Hazel Blears, nasty Blairite war monger to boot.

I am hoping that the Lib Dems and even the Tories give the excellent David Henry a free run...the left in Manchester are really getting their act together and Manchester could be short of a few New Labour MPs soon, I am certainly expecting Gayle O'Donovan to win as a Hulme councillor and she is battling hard for Manchester Central.

Looking forward to working to support Davie Henry.

Campaigners against Labour MP Hazel Blears have selected a candidate to stand against her at the next general election.

David Henry, 24, will canvass for votes in the Salford and Eccles constituency under the 'Hazel Must Go' banner at the poll, likely to be held in May.

Mr Henry, of Broughton, is a member of the Green party and is co-chair of Salford Youth Council.

The 'Hazel Must Go' campaign was set up by left wing activists in Salford, including trade unionist Bob Crow, following the MPs' expenses scandal last summer.

Ms Blears wrote a cheque for £13,000 to HM Revenue & Customs to cover unpaid capital gains tax on the sale of two flats in London when the scandal broke.

The Legg report revealed she had also repaid £225 for a glass shelving unit.

The Hazel Must Go group has issued a list of ten pledges which they want Mr Henry to put forward during the election campaign.

They include: no cuts in public spending; public investment in council housing and an end to school closures.

The North West regional organiser of the SP said that the meeting agreed that David would be standing under the TUSC banner. Have I been misinformed Derek? You say he's standing under a Hazel must go ticket.

Well done David, and Salford. It doesn't matter what banner he stands under. He's the sort of person we need to clean up politics!

This is about tackling a corrupt politician not branding. True some of the details need to be worked out but David is an excellent choice and has shown himself to be a great campaigner.

Crticisms apart, I sincerely hope David Henry every success.

Sleaze, Unemployment and cuts in public spending will be the main priorities of the Salford community.

The envirnment will be a secondary issue. I do hope the wishy washy greens know that will be script of the main parties.Aim high and cut your clothe accordingly.
