Great Manchester Police -GMP names three constituencies in expenses probe


A file relating to alleged electoral fraud in three Greater Manchester constituencies has been passed to prosecutors, police have confirmed. Conservative Party electoral expenses during the 2015 General Election are being investigated in Bury North, Cheadle and Hazel Grove, said Greater Manchester Police.
Thirteen police forces in the UK have asked the Crown Prosecution Service to consider charges.
The party was fined a record £70,000 last week for breaking election expense rules.

PS  Majority in our constituency  voted Remain last year but YOU betrayed our trust and voted Brexit. Why should I trust you again.


I'm struggling to find the point you are making. Could you clarify please?

Thanks to Andrew for the informative explanation about the 375. Is this sort of knowledge in the public domain or are you "in the know" professionally?

Just nosey.  Amazing what you can find in the depths of the internet,!

Thanks to Corium for your clarification.

To build on Dave's point, a more pubby walk starts from the Beehive in New Mills, takes in the excellent Beer Shed in New Mills then continues along the Sett Valley trail ,via the Printers Arms at Thornsett before arriving in New Mills where you can take your pick from the George, Pack Horse , Royal Hotel or Dutsons. Ten past the hour up until 11 pm your 358 chariot awaits to bring you back to Marple. Three and a half miles and Four Good beer Guide ticks ( and a shoe in for next years guide for the Beer Shed ) - whats not to like?

Err, not according to the generally published results which have Hazel Grove voting 52.2% leave.  That figure came from the Stockport Council website originally, but the page appears to no longer exist. Wikipedia (not the most reliable of sources I know)  still shows that figure

Henrietta was simply asking you to explain your comment that it's "nightmare land". It seems quite a reasonable request and that's a very odd response to it.
Thanks, Admin :)

Good for you Henri! I've found people to be very generous when I've been on the Poppy Stall in the Co-Op and ASDA in recent years.

Anyway, great that we are talking about this and that there's a new team on the job for 2017.

A special email address that you can use to contact the organisers has now been set up.

Just use poppyappeal@marple-uk.com to send an email to all three of the organisers mentioned below.

If it's the blue flag with the gold 3 wheatsheaves & the sword it's one of my neighbours who seems to buy a job lot of random flags & fly them. Never knew this was the Cheshire flag.
It looked a bit odd when I was driving past. Wasn't it upside down?

I hope Wragg has a humiliating defeat.

Small minded little englander that 'earns' £74k, still lives with his Mum and voted to cut disability benefits.

He has voted to cut school funding which leaves all schools in the local are much worse off - www.schoolcuts.org.uk

He hasn't responded to a great many enquiries or requests for support from friends and neighbours.

For those who share this view search Facebook for GetWillyOut or WomenAgainstWilly
I don't vote for his lot but I think it's a bit unfair to complain because he lives with his Mum!

Why are there no actual street collections in Marple? The customers used to be a lot more generous to poor frozen collectors out-of-doors than they were when I last collected which was in the old Co-op. Even a hard stare at the people who were trying to avoid us didn't work, despite placing myself where they practically had to climb over me to get out of the store.

I used to be very good at street Poppy collections when I lived in Marple in the early 1980s. My coup was £10 note from a Japanese gentleman (yes he did ask what it was all about and I did explain.) The prime morning spot back then was outside the post office on Stockport road. Stand in front of the door, not near enough to block the entrance but close enough for people to have to walk round you. I always did well there!!

Despite my advanced age I'd still be prepared to stand in the street if required. I once chased a thief down Market Street after he snatched the collecting tin out of the shop I was in. He abandoned the tin after a 100 yards or so (he threw it at me!) - I think he was embarrassed by this harpy in a pinny running after him yelling "STOP THIEF" at the top of her voice!
