How low can one get ?
Can you get any lower than a local authority selling a burial ground that was in public ownership that contains the resting place of 313 Swintonians, which includes a World War 1 soldier, a soldier who paid the ultimate sacrifice which means it is a War Grave, something traditionally in our country we are suppose to respect ?
The Manchester District Association of the Unitarian Church who accepted a fee from a developer to release a covenant that protected a burial ground from development, which means the final resting place of 313 Swintonians has been put at severe risk ?
Asda and their cohorts insult the deceased and surviving relatives by trying to pretend they stumbled across by accident bodies in wasteland, in their pursuit of another supermarket at any price the Asda Price) and that these bodies happen to just appear by accident, when in fact they have known for 3 years it was a burial ground, made a payment to the church to have the covenant released and the those resting are going to be dug up and bagged up as though they are sacking a bag of potatoes ? (see my previous blogs)
In return for granting planning permission, which would result in the exhumation of 313 Swintonians from their final resting place, Salford Council is probably going to accept around £10,000 or more from the developer/planning applicants in return for them granting permission ?
In trying to inform local people about what is happening, the history and importance of the site which is of significant historical value, what I believe to be morally wrong, a few local people would clearly have their Asda supermarket at any price and try to ignore the fact that in order to get this supermarket a burial ground is being disturbed and removed (as long as its not my grandma or grandad they shifting!) mentality ????
