British National Party activists from Salford have once again been campaigning and leafletting in the latest in a series of days of action in Walkden. reports organiser Gary Tumulty.
Salford's activists were joined by a team from Bolton the day after boxing day to prepare for a by-election in the area following the death of a Labour councillor, and we have been continuing to canvass and leaflet the area since, regardless of the deep snow last week, and on the whole, the response from the residents has been very positive, with comments such as "About bloody time you lot showed up" being the general consensus. continued Mr Tumulty.
Keith Fairhurst, deputy organiser added, Walkden North is virgin territory for us, and I'm heartened by the fact that we were well received, and that our message is one that resonates with the residents, especially our anti-war campaign "Bring our Boys Home". Many locals made less than complimentary comments about the war-mongering "old gang" and were keen to encourage us with our campaign.
With every election campaign, there is always a need for extra bodies to help with leafletting etc, so if anyone can spare a few hours, we would be very grateful ,Please contact Gary Tumulty firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07909674006. Help us make THE breakthrough in Salford. concluded Mr Fairhurst.
