Salford Council are now busy underway checking the signatures and making sure every thing is in order, and they have well over the numbers required, so it should ensure fair play from the Labour controlled council.
RWB Correspondent spoke to Gary Tumulty Salford BNP Organiser who said “I am delighted this has took place, and it now seems the council have to sit up and take note of what the public are saying, I for one signed the petition, I also met Geoffrey some time ago now to discuss the way forward and the extra push needed for this referendum,
“Geoffrey is not affiliated with any political party now, but the British National Party will be out campaigning for the YES vote, and if Geoffrey wants to accompany us round he is more than welcome.”
“Its very important we all work together and push the YES vote and then we get our say who is control, as the mayor of Salford” Gary concluded
