    Also you still cant string an understandable post together, so I suggest if your party wants to get any votes they need to dump you to gain a modicum of chance to get any votes.
    Also geoff51 last local elections (2011) I got the second highest result for the TUSC in Southampton.
    So keeping me they stand a more than a modicum chance.
    That you may have but if i remember correctly the BNP got more votes in Harefield ward than the TUSC!
    Hardly riveting results Southy and not exactly good portents for May"

Unionists call to rethink cuts

Daily Echo: Anti-cuts: TUSC candidate Perry McMillan Anti-cuts: TUSC candidate Perry McMillan

MEMBERS of the Southampton Trade Unionists & Socialists Against Cuts (TUSC) party will urge city councillors to rethink cuts when they meet to agree a budget on Wednesday.

TUSC candidate Perry McMillan, anti-cuts campaigner Gavin Marsh and Andrew Howe from Youth Fight will make a deputation to the meeting to oppose cuts of up to £14m proposed this year by ruling Conservatives.

Mr McMillan, a former Labour councillor, said: "Since I was deselected for opposing cuts in 2003 we have had a New Labour run council, a Lib Dem council, a Lib Lab council and finally a Tory run council. All have made cuts.

“If others are not prepared to fight the cuts then stand aside for those who will.”

He said TUSC would be fielding candidates in every ward in local elections in May in support of striking trade unions, in opposition to all cuts, and for a budget to “meet the needs of the many not the millionaires”.
