Anti-poll tax campaigner Steve Nally is standing for TUSC in Tulse Hill, Lambeth, South London, on 25th July.
The old traditions of struggle are once again coming to the fore in Lambeth, which stood with Liverpool against Thatcher's cuts to local government.
Re-visiting old supporters to get nominations to stand, TUSC candidate Steve Nally, standing in the Tulse Hill by-election, was rebuffed by just one, only to receive a call the following day to say that, angry with Labour's choice of candidate, he wanted to nominate Steve after all.
Memories of how the Poll Tax was defeated run deep in Lambeth. In January, as TUSC candidate in the neighbouring Brixton Hill by-election, Steve defeated the UKIP bandwagon.
This time we're unmasking Farage as a tax evader. Unite members looking for a candidate who supports trade union rights are welcome to join us.
