#Manchester Labour Manifesto = April Fools Spoof, only worse.

april 1st spoofManchester Labour Party’s election manifesto seems to have been ‘inspired’ by a post on Manchester Climate Monthly.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the post in question was an April Fool’s spoof, in which we announced that the Council was going to get all 96 of its councillors to undertake “carbon literacy” training by the of the year, AND also get 100,000 of Manchester’s citizens similarly trained by the end of the year.

The Labour Manifesto  – see relevant page below – contains the headlines, but – of course – no specific numerical targets.  Funny that. Not.labour nonsense-page001

  1. Manchester City Council has in the past, funded graffiti on numerous occasions: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/manchester/3937897.stm. In fact, the Manchester Metropolitan University, regularly takes students out and about, especially in Hulme, to graffitit. So, maybe the Labour manifesto is a late April Fool’s Day joke!
