POLITICAL campaigners are urging people from Walkden and Little Hulton to help to force out Hazel Blears as MP for Salford.

Activists have formed a campaign group called Hazel Must Go! and plan to hold a public meeting at the Salford Link centre, in Chadwick Road, Eccles, at 7pm on September 16 to discuss ways of ousting her.

It follows controversy early this year when it was revealed Miss Blears broke MPs’ expense rules by claiming on three properties in a year.

She resigned from her position in the Cabinet as communities secretary in June but is still an MP.

A Hazel Must Go campaign spokesman said: “The campaign was born from the anger and frustration many of Hazel Blears’ constituents are feeling in the light of the scandals that have surrounded our representative.

“The Hazel Must Go! campaign is calling for her to stand down, right here, right now.

“We want as many people as possible to support us from all across Salford.”
