Backing for trade union candidate

TWO ex-Labour supporters will tonight give their backing to a trade unionist candidate.

Southampton councillor Keith Morrell and former Labour MP Dave Nellist are set to speak in support of Darren Procter, the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition’s candidate for Eastleigh at a rally this evening.

They will be at the Locomotive Engineers Club, on Station Hill, Eastleigh from 7.30pm. Cllr Morrell, who represents the Coxford ward, was one of two councillors that split from the Labour party in protest at Southampton City Council cuts.

Mr Procter is secretary of the Southampton shipping branch of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) and a member of the union’s national executive committee.

The TUSC stands against cuts and privatisation.

"The TUSC stands against cuts and privatisation."

AND don't forget, the TUSC in Southy's very own words would Bankrupt the City, yet alone Eastleigh!

They would have a 'Needs Budget' which from what I gather is a budget that they chose that the Government won't provide, so they'll go bust.

It's like a load of kids who want lollies that the parents can't afford! Bring on the Monster Raving Loonies!

Give me strength............

HOLD PRESS, this article was posted 1:50pm on Tuesday, it's managed 6 comments other than mine.

The media blackout has caused a major backlog! I guess The Echo website must have crashed and deleted all the comments supporting the TUSC.

I bet TUSC are to ashamed to support your views. They're probably cringing reading your past posts whilst UKIP who have kept their gobs shut are wetting their pants at this opportunity.

Seems to me that all the many, many supporters of 'the fastest growing political party in the country' have decided THEY are going to boycott the media. How strange.

A question for all the standing candidates.


-

Why isn't (Defunct SHA) the South Central Strategic Health Authorities Fluoridation of Eastleigh's water an issue in this By-Election?..


We all know Nu-Labour is for Fluoridation is John O’Farrell?



1) Labour Party's Socialist Health Association advocate the Fluoridation of all drinking Water.



2) Labour Party's Socialist Health Association advocates the adding Fluoride to all Milk ( when all Milking Cows will be drinking Fluoridated Water ?)



3) Labour Party's Socialist Health Association advocates the promotion of Fluoride products in all Schools, Anti-natal sessions etc.

IT'S FINALLY POLLING DAY IN THE EASTLEIGH BY-ELECTION

Updated 11:06am Thursday 28th February 2013

10:23am

THE FLUORIDE PROTEST MARCH IS UNDERWAY AND ORGANSIERS ARE ANTICIPATING AS MANY AS 200 PEOPLE TAKING TO THE STREETS OF EASTLEIGH...

10:18am.

Just when you thought the protest marches were over, members of Hampshire Against Fluoridation are currently gathering in Eastleigh to make their voices heard.

They are planning a slow procession through the town to the Masonic Hall in Cranbury Road where voting will be taking place.

Their morning of action comes just weeks after health bosses admitted for the first time they don't expect fluoridation to be in place until 2014 - five years after it was given the green light.

The scheme, aimed at improving dental health, would cover parts of Southampton, Eastleigh, Totton, Netley and Rownhams.

Campaigners say the Strategic Health Authority (SHA) should now "give up" on the delayed project, saying it is "morally and ethically" wrong to fluoridate water while questions remain over its impact.

For all thee fluoride debate see our special section - click here.
