Children’s Laureate and Novelist backs left of Labour challenge in the London Assembly Elections
Broadcaster, children's novelist and poet and the author of 140 books and fifth Children's Laureate, Michael Rosen has thrown his support behind the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (1) election campaign.
Speaking today Mike Rosen said:
“The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition offers us a chance to say we oppose what this government is doing - which is sacking people and cutting our services to help the bankers. We must use our vote to show we are not fooled by the idea that making people poorer will give people jobs. All it does is make rich people richer. Vote TUSC to say no to this.”
