According to The Gaurdian, recent research in February shows that in Salford there are ten job-seekers for every employment vacancy. Coincidentally, there are now ten candidates running for the post of elected Mayor for Salford.
Mike Scantlebury is the man on the left. The man on the right is Jesse James, the well-known bandit and bank robber. (He is wanted in seven counties.)
It’s no good me being all forthright and telling Salfordians they need to vote for a Mayor on 3rd May if they haven’t actually registered! That’s right, you need to get your name down on the list. Bouncers says, ‘If you’re not on The List, you’re not coming in’, and that applies to Polling Stations too. When you turn up on Thursday, 3rd May, you’ll need to be a name they recognise, or – well, we’ll be sorting out this Mayor business without you!
Well, shut that door! The City of Salford has finally made it into Wikiland, not for being a wonderfuel place to live, but because we’ve finally caught up with Doncaster – and got ourselves a properly elected Mayor. Well done us!
