Boarded Up Bay Horse Pub In Hyde
It is sad to see grande old pubs like this boarded up, even if it was until fairly recently emblazoned with Labour Party posters at election times. This pub was also the place where Labour Party activists such as Adam White used to meet Labour's secret helpers to interfere with democracy at election times. Basically the Labour mob would bus in fanatical extremists from Manchester and beyond to distribute smear leaflets and intimidate opponents, often the smear leaflets were illegal or filled with lies and half truths but as a rule they did have the desired effect from Labour's point of view as they helped persuade enough non-Labour voters to abstain from voting and thus ensured that the Labour trough dwellers remained in office.
On a positive note I see that the weight restriction and "do not follow sat nav" sign has been installed at the start of Matley Lane. I suspect this video I posted back in December may have played some small part in bringing this about which can only be considered as a good result.
