Galloway victory shows potential for another upset says London Assembly candidate
Trade Unionist and Socialist London list candidate Nick Wrack said:
“George Galloway’s overwhelming win in Bradford West shows that Labour can no longer take its working-class voters for granted. Labour has paid a huge price for its support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and its endorsement of the government’s austerity policies.
“Millions are facing cuts, unemployment, pay freezes and the privatisation of public services they depend on, while millionaire bankers and bosses continue to pick up massive salaries and bonuses. Why should ordinary people pay for a crisis they didn’t cause? There is a deep discontent with the three-party consensus and this result shows that the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition has a real chance to win seats in the London elections on 3 May. Labour should be prepared for another upset.”
TUSC (1) candidates are standing on a platform of opposition to all cuts to public services, jobs and wages. To defend social, political and trade union rights, equality and freedom for all and for a new party that speaks for the millions, not the millionaires.
