Socialist Party election appeal

Funded by you - not by big business

The Socialist Party is standing election candidates as part of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition. We are asking you to donate to our campaign.

All the big capitalist beasts lurking round Britain's political establishment are waking from hibernation and subsidising the parties of the rich in this year's general election. The Tories' rich donors give most, though all the pro-austerity mainstream parties are building piles of cash.

Take Ukip, the reactionary anti-immigration party that occasionally paints itself as an anti-establishment outfit. It wants rich people's money and is proving that it is basically a very right wing, pro-austerity Tory party.

Richard Desmond, who made his fortune from porn magazines before taking over Express group newspapers (his firm still owns 'adult TV' channels) says he will give Ukip hundreds of thousands of pounds. Multi-millionaire Patrick Barbour backs Ukip because he wants a much 'flatter' tax system, which would hit his bulging wallet far less!

We, however, are funded by donations from working class people like you! As articles in this week's Socialist show, TUSC fights for the millions not the millionaires and puts forward a real alternative to the politics of austerity.

Please give generously. You can donate on www.socialistparty.org.uk/donate, phone 020 8988 8777 to make a card payment, or post a cheque made out to "Socialist Party" to PO Box 24697, London E11 1YD. Please mark your donation "election appeal 2015". All donations should be in by 30 April 2015.

Thanks this week to, among others, Mick Whale who donated 400, Gerry McGinley (Huddersfield) 25, Neil Adshead (Rotherham) 10, Ross Saunders (Cardiff West) 100, Helen Jones (Cardiff West) 50, Adrian O'Malley (Wakefield) 100, Margaret Trotter (Hackney) 50. Delia Hazrati (East Kent) 200 and Kerry Brier (Leicester) who donated 20 and said: "Good luck to all comrades standing for a better society for the masses."
