A stinging tirade is being launched by the BNP as the party slams Salford City Council for money-saving projects while their senior members are still overpaid.
Gary Tumlty attacked ‘stupid ventures’ like asylum seeker week, slammed NHS translation services and branded Salford City Council’s Chief Executive Barbara Spicer and Mayor Ian Stewart greedy.
In a controversial interview with MM Mr Tumulty spoke out about a range of social issues and presented the BNP line.
With housing policy already causing problems in Salford with an upcoming bedroom tax and a landlord licensing scheme, Mr Tumulty was keen to suggest different measures.
He said: “Our policy on housing in Salford is 'Local Houses for Local People' this is one of the most commonly discussed problems with us in Salford.
“There is an unfair bidding system which favours some people before others, scrap the bidding systems and get back to allocating house fairly.”
The unsavourily undertones were present in every response, after demanding that NHS ‘pen-pushers’ take pay reductions to avoid cuts to frontline services – he then attacked translation in the NHS.
He said: “Interpretation and translations services for consultations are eating a massive hole in the budget it must stop.
“If people need translation services, unless British indigenous languages, they must pay for it themselves.”
As well as the attack on a valuable service for those who need it there was also a thinly veiled attack on education policy.
When asked about the BNP’s alternative to cut backs in schools Mr Tumulty said that the BNP favoured a system of educating ‘our own’ British children, further indication of their controversial party policies.
However, under the hate, there are some hints of the BNP touching on issues that would appeal to some people, although when they do it is usually laced with hidden motives.
While the high wages of many council workers is a contentious issue that would rile many residents of Salford, they seem to use it as a precursor to more unnerving beliefs.
Mr Tumulty said: “Over paying chief executives such as Barbara Spicer who is paid well over £200,000, greedy councillors claiming 'special expenses' and an over paid mayor, Ian Stewart on £69,000.
“He then appoints a further 13 'assistants', jobs for the boys, to do his job, costing in the region of £3,000 extra each.
“The council must stop wasting money and place back into the communities, remember Salford belongs to the people not the authority's or people running it namely Labour.”
Any hint of rational views and a connection with normal people is short lived however and Mr Tumulty is soon back to pushing the dangerous underlying themes of BNP policy.
When questioned about the claims in the BNP manifesto that British people freedom is becoming limited by the EU Mr Tumulty gave a questionable response.
He said: “Well when you have bureaucrats who no one voted for in the EU dictating how the country is to be run, and what rules we must abide by, there really is no freedom, that's called fascism.
“It’s time to control our own country and withdraw its membership of the EU, I will also add that it costs around £57million pounds a day being in there.
“We can’t afford it and it is time to call a referendum and leave.”
