Bolton Conservatives announce shadow cabinet reshuffle

The Bolton News: Bolton Conservative leader David Greenhalgh Bolton Conservative leader David Greenhalgh

THE structure of Bolton Council’s official opposition party has been revealed.

Following the local elections last week, leader of the Conservative Party, Bromley Cross councillor David Greenhalgh, has organised a re-shuffle of the shadow cabinet.

Taking over as deputy leader of the party, following the shock defeat of Andy Morgan in Hulton ward to UKIP, is Astley Bridge councillor Hilary Fairclough.

Cllr Martyn Cox, who kept his seat in Westhoughton last Thursday, has been named as the Tory’s new spokesman for housing, sports, development and regeneration.

Meanwhile the shadow executive member for the environment next year will be Cllr Bob Allen, who represents Heaton and Lostock.

Cllr Mudasir Dean, for Bradshaw, is now the group’s chief whip.

Cllr Greenhalgh said the restructure meant the party has four members to shadow and challenge the executive cabinet members of the ruling Labour party.

He added: “I believe we have a strong team that will hold the ruling Labour group to account, challenge forcefully when necessary and put our point of view across, but not be afraid to agree with the ruling group when we feel it is in the interests of Bolton.”

Labour is in overall control of Bolton Council with 40 councillors.

The Conservatives are the official opposition with 15 members, while the Liberal Democrats have three councillors and UKIP two.

So nothing changes.

Labour Cllr. Linda Thomas follows in the footsteps of Cllr Morgan, overseeing the destruction of the NHS and all the other public services.

Just like the millions of people who helped Hitler rise to power.

Hitler (like Farage at present ) was a great speaker, who relied on fear and emotion in order to get people to support him.

The moderate political parties (as in the UK at present ) would not work together, although together they had more support than the Nazis.

The depression of 1929 created poverty and unemployment, (as at present ) which made people angry with the Weimar government (as at present ).

People lost confidence in the democratic system (as at present ) and turned towards the extremist political parties such as the Nazis.

The people of the UK have now turned towards such a group, with the help of Cllrs Peacock and Richardson of Bolton.

The group the EFD is a coalition of ten political parties – the largest being the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and the Italian Northern League, with nine seats – along with one independent. EFD is the most hostile to European integration among the groups in the European Parliament.

One of their leaders has a swastika tattoo,
One wants to rid his entire country of Muslims,
Another has a founder who suggested releasing the Ebola virus on migrants.

This is the class of 2014, the parties set to enter the European Parliament as part of the Union's most eurosceptic, far right, anti-immigrant intake of all time.

This year 2014 is the first time openly neo-Nazi parties will sit in Brussels as representatives of their nations - the United Kingdom being one of those nations.

UKIP and those who support them are a disgrace and an insult to the fallen of our nation and of Europe.

One of the problems with the conservatives is they have been held back by the liberal party in coalition. So the deeper cuts that are required have been held back therefore the deficit has not been wiped out as promised. After the last election the Conservatives should have hit the ground running with a “Shock and Orr” budget and wiped the deficit out in the first year

The moderate political parties (as in the UK at present ) would not work together, although together they had more support than the Nazis.

The depression of 1929 created poverty and unemployment, (as at present ) which made people angry with the Weimar government (as at present ).

People lost confidence in the democratic system (as at present ) and turned towards the extremist political parties such as the Nazis.

The people of the UK have now turned towards such a group, with the help of Cllrs Peacock and Richardson of Bolton.

The group the EFD is a coalition of ten political parties – the largest being the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and the Italian Northern League, with nine seats – along with one independent. EFD is the most hostile to European integration among the groups in the European Parliament.

One of their leaders has a swastika tattoo,
One wants to rid his entire country of Muslims,
Another has a founder who suggested releasing the Ebola virus on migrants.

This is the class of 2014, the parties set to enter the European Parliament as part of the Union's most eurosceptic, far right, anti-immigrant intake of all time.

This year 2014 is the first time openly neo-Nazi parties will sit in Brussels as representatives of their nations - the United Kingdom being one of those nations.

UKIP and those who support them are a disgrace and an insult to the fallen of our nation and of Europe.
Well said Puffin Billy. Couldn't agree more!
SO it's the EFD's fault that the EU created a platform for Nazis to be elected?

UKIP are not racist and are certainly not Nazis.

It's a bit rich you sitting down with Dogs in the Ukraine and claiming not to have caught fleas.

Oh and Puffin Blly, before you crack that old line of UKIP supporters are Racist Nazis,

My father in Law was a Desert Rat who fought in Africa then was in Italy, He was Awarded the M.M, he was a UKIP supporter, and he was Jewish.

You really are barking up the wrong tree with me
