1986. Politics: Manchester’s Chief Constable James Anderton — 6 Comments

  1. In the same Guardian article Beatrice Campbell claims that the famous drag ball in 1880 happened in a temperance hall “nearby” to Canal Street. In fact, if you look at the Guardian from 1880, you find that the hall was located at “Hulme Place, York-street, Chester Road” in Hulme. Nowhere near Canal Street.

    This must bring into question everything else stated in that article. Including the motorboats. How did they navigate the locks?

    People should bear in mind that there is a whole money-driven marketing industry geared towards talking up the current gay village area while painting everything about the past in a negative light. Articles that do that are more likely to may it into print.

  4. wow! i never would have expected this from James Anderton (a close relative of my friend, who she looks up to and takes inspiration from in her day to day life). Quite frankly, i am appalled. As a fierce ally myself, i may have to call off our friendship, knowing that she still supports him even now! she even wants to continue his legacy by becoming the new chief of police and enacting several laws against the gays. Yours fondly, holly.
