A little bit about me

News

Some have asked me about how Anthony is doing during this cold spell and the sub zero temperatures.
So I caught up with him, and here are a few words to let everyone know he is safe and warm

The Timperley Wedge, a green belt area between Manchester / airport and Trafford.
This green belt area is now under serious threat, and we must protect the lungs that nature has created.

Greater Manchester Spatial Framework
The second draft of the plan is currently being developed, with a view to publish it in June 2018. Following publication of the draft plan, there will be a 12-week consultation with the public.
The statement that “3,300 residential units in a mix of housing types and tenures. Whilst the majority will be higher value, low density properties” is alarming

Trafford Conservatives have got this well and truly on their radar, and Trafford Labour have also singled out the Timperley Wedge for prime development.
The Trafford Lib Dems claim that they want to protect the green belt, but they want to build an additional 40 car parking spaces on Lark Hill a green space in the heart of Timperley.

Trafford is unable to maintain the existing infrastructure it has in place, with the roads collapsing, a mass of pot holes damaging vehicles. Plus oversubscribed schools and a local authority that is unable to cope as it is.

Back in December 2016 I wrote THIS Good Bye to the local Lib Dems. Well since then I did what I said I was going to to do, and joined The Liberal Party. 
All of a sudden the June 2017 snap general election was called, and to cust a long story short, I am now a parlimentary candidate for The Liberal Party. This is also going to add asa spring board for the 2018 local elections where I am looking forward to standing and campaigning back in my old Timperley Ward.

So to find out a bit more about the Trafford Liberal Party use THIS LINK to visit and find out more.

'I don't even like football' - Ex-politician Neil Taylor defends himself over 'horror tackle' after case of mistaken identity

Welsh left back Neil Taylor's challenge has been widely condemned as reckless and many fans looked to vent their anger on Twitter.

The messages started coming through as Neil and wife Sandra were enjoying a 10th wedding anniversary meal at the Hilal restaurant in Timperley.

Neil and Sandra are not football fans and at first had no idea what the messages were referring to. But when he realised, Neil responded to the messages with humour.

He said: '"My name is Neil Taylor but I do not play or like football. Tonight I went out for a curry and beer.......I have no connection with a football player called Neil Taylor."

Neil, who used to represent the Timperley ward on Trafford Council, later added: "1: I do not play football 2: I don’t even like football 3; I was in a school footie team aged about six (we lost every game)."

He even tweeted a photo of himself as a child and said: "Here is Neil Taylor when he was little. No aspiration to play football. Would grow up to enjoy curry and beer, oh and chips. "

He told Messenger: "There were threats coming through about what people would like to do to me. but I thought 'let's have some fun with this'.

"It didn't spoil the meal. I could see the funny side of it.

"But it is one of the most bizarre stories that I have ever been involved with."
