I have been active in the labour movement for over 30 years, during which time I have been a member of the Socialist Party
I was Constituency Agent for Dave Nellist, Labour MP for Coventry South East, who is now National Chair of TUSC. During his period as MP from 1984 to 1992, along with Terry Fields and Pat Wall, he created the template of a ‘Workers MP on a Workers Wage’.
He took as salary no more than the average wage of his constituents. The rest was donated to community organisations and labour movement campaigns. This ensured that he remained in touch with the living conditions and problems of the people he represented. What a contrast to the greedy careerists who populate Parliament today!
I am proud to follow Dave’s example, and make the same pledge to live on the average (median) salary of Ealing workers if elected.
Labour has become just another pro-capitalist party, implementing cuts and privatisation.
This is why was TUSC was set up, and why we are standing in over 100 seats in the General Election. TUSC is your only vote if you are opposed to austerity and support policies in favour of the 99% , not the millionaires.
