Salford Mayor Breaks UK Road Laws

Camping Out With Labour

Turnpike House Salford, local authority public building home to the city council’s refuge collectors, licencing and other frontline service departments, has become the latest victim to Labour Mayor Ian Stewart’s crooked unlawful ways.

On the public owned site there is a car park provided for council staff for 1% of their annual salary, and for visitors for the standard tariff of £2:50 per hour, or £3:50 per day. It appears to be one rule for you and one for the Labour Party as the mayor Ian Stewart who has decided to take up 2 spaces and park a deluxe touring campervan, without paying a single penny at the back of the building.

Stewart who is paid currently £69,000 of tax payer’s money for the role of city mayor, no stranger to public anger as he was once caught up in the expenses scandal claiming more than double the amount set whilst his life was short lived in Westminster, once an MP for Salford he claimed £18,000 for staying away from home, a further £18,968 paying for the cost of running his office and to top it off an eye watering £102,000 on Labour staffing cost, travel and stationery along with up to £4000 a month on food allowances.

Morning Mr Mayor

Furthermore to the mayors embarrassment exposed by the British National Party Salford Branch Stewart is still hitting the Westminster gravy train by renting out a second home in London he also acquired from the tax payer, for £1300 to Gerry Sutcliffe Labour MP for Bradford South. It was also published on parliament records Stewart received £27,361 for 'interest on mortgage during the years of 2008 and 2010. With Sutcliffe paying Stewart a further £1300, for the 'accommodation costs' since 2011 the Labour Mayor is set to take an additional £31,200 in payments from the tax payer.  

In a seedier sinister plot it was established Stewarts campervan once off the road at his home in Liverpool Road Irlam, is now back on the road at its new home in the Weaste public premises Turnpike House with no road tax, and has not been since March 2012, so the question is asked was the motorhome drove to its new home with no valid road tax or insurance.

No Tax With Labour

Commenting on this issue the DVLA say “Under the Motor Vehicle Insurance Regulation Act 2010 – any vehicle can be insured, but it is illegal to insure any car / van or motorhome with no road tax, as it would be invalid and subject to criminal investigation.

Under Operation Wolverine any motor vehicle that is not insured can be removed from the road and taken to compound and Greater Manchester Police would be looking to seize any vehicles not complying with the UK road law.

Stephen Lawton, Enforcement Officer Salford City Council added “There is no exemption for any one parking down at the council buildings and everybody is expected to pay, he confirmed the campervan that has been parked at Turnpike House for almost a month would now be under investigation after receiving many complaints from staff and the general public”.

Red Area Mean Law Breaking

A representative from NSL who hold a multimillion pound contract with the council to enforce civil laws and parking tickets said he had been instructed to leave the campervan and not to issue tickets, regardless if it had a parking permit or not, but could not tell us who has instructed them under the data protection act.

Gary Tumulty, acting North West British National Party from Salford said “Ian Stewart is a crook, we have always said this. Labour think they are above the law, but in the same respect no one in the council really challenge’s them, because they are not held accountable to anyone other than the beast that is called Salford Labour. It’s not fair that we all have to comply with parking laws and pay our way, the mayor is penny pinching, move the motorhome or just pay your way starting with the road tax”.

We did manage to get hold of the Labours City Mayor Ian Stewart who said in his best Scottish accent “No comment”.

Show your disgust to Labour and consider switching your vote to someone who cares, The British National Party we expose the corruption from council level upwards and will continue to do that until we remove all the traitors who have sold the British people out for their own personal greed.
