Kirkby Times, All the News, Views and Issues that Matter in Kirkby. In depth reports. Back from the dead -and heading for our 10th anniversey in 2012.
Welcome to Kirkby Times!
You should find it easy to use the website and you can find your way round all
the sections with the navigation bar at the side. All the older 2002/2003 news is still
here, some of it updated and there is now a basic search facility on the news page
where you can type in keywords to research local issues. The Website is updated
several times a week and is the biggest online source of Kirkby related issues
in the World.
An Independent Working Class website with news, views, reports, photo's and video's
you won't see anywhere else. More content than Knowsley Councils website, more sense
as well. The only website in Kirkby prepared to admit that some things are going
wrong! No spin, No Ads and no pictures of the Lord Mayor, unless were making fun
of him. Local News written by local people. On the spot reports and the stories
the local political players and Knowsley Council want to cover up. You won't
read this news in the Councils laughable 'news' paper: The Knowsley Challenge.
You will here. What's more, you can contribute an article and/or photos and have
The Elderly in the UK are being thrown on a scrapheap, left abandoned in 'care'
homes run by greedy bastards and under the 'protection' of Housing Trusts and Councils. Kirkby Times
will give a voice to the elderly, and praise them for there magnificence in
fighting for us. This was the generation which fought fascism so we could
walk down the street without the swastika flying. They deserve better than
hi rise hells and under-funded social services. Those who exploit the elderly
are scum, so too are the politicians who tell us there's 'no money' for their
care and provision whilst alweays finding cash for wars and, of course, to line their pockets and their mates pockets. We must fight those who would deny our old folk a decent life. This would be a war worth fighting!
The Hillsborough Football Disaster is an issue which is covered here. Many from Kirkby were
there in 1989 when England's worse ever sporting disaster killed 96 men Women and Kids.
The Cover Up began even before the dead were cold. Merseyside's Chief Constable was one
of the men named in Parliament as being part of a Police Propaganda team, who were
involved in passing the blame to Liverpool Fans. The cover up continues to this day.
First with reports on Sonae, read how the people of Kirkby are subjected to
record levels of pollution and suffer from record levels of lung related diseases.
Any connection? Is the Pope Catholic? All this and much more in the Sonae section.
Please keep sending in your reports regarding Sonae. We must fight these toxic
lowlife - that's means kick them out - and if Kirkby sticks together on this
issue - we will win - easily! In 2012 Sonae have now managed to cause the deaths of two workers - with others injured and of course the community loaded with pollutants which are free-flowing still. Yet another fire and series of explosions rocked the Sonae plant on 27 Jan 2012. The nightmare continues.
Reports on the local 'political gravy train', who's getting their hands on the grants
and who's selling out the people for a fast buck. Corruption in Kirkby is non existent
if you believe the Council's Newspapers and the Councillors. Actually, a Town with no
opposition is always going to have a degree of corruption. Deals, Contracts, and a
hundred other opportunities await for those not shy of a brown paper envelope of
two. The Labour Mafia must be dismantled so democracy can have a chance here.
Local Councillors must be judged by their actions - not their throwaway words.
The Kirkby Times will be there to make sure that local political players are not
acting in secrecy as they usually do. Many reports are kept from the public
domain; many decisions are made without the community's knowledge or consent.
Politicians promise open democracy but here in Kirkby our local councillors are
far from open. The ordinary people are the last to know anything.
Crime is a subject or reality which affects a lot of us here. Kirkby Times has a number
of articles relating to crime, and hopefully more people will take the time to email
reports. Who else is going to report on the fact some heroin addicts robbed your house?
Or that the Police took an hour to get a car out? Kirkby Times will include various
crime reports, not as some campaign to help the Police, but to simply report on what's
happening here. This web site is 100% independent from the Police and ALL authority.
Let's not forget the biggest crime in the UK in the way our wealth is distributed
to the rich.
Kirkby Times will go through a few changes over the next weeks/months and will
hopefully be faster to download. A bigger server will mean more multimedia content
- more full sized photos, more mp3s and videos and other features. Anyone local is
welcome to contribute stories, reports, photos, graphics or social commentary but feel free to comment if you have something to say.
Even if you think this website is the biggest pile of crap to hit the internet
- your views will eventually be published. Try to keep it legal - don't worry
about the size of your article - send in a book if you want.
