From The Socialist newspaper, 14 October 2009

Socialist stands for NUT vice-president

Socialist Party member Martin Powell-Davies is standing for election as vice president of the National Union of Teachers.

He told The Socialist: "Job and pay cuts, attacks on pensions, increasing workloads, more classes without qualified teachers, the dismantling of comprehensive education through academies and trusts - this could be the future for teachers whoever wins the general election. But not if we organise behind an effective strategy to defend education - that's why I'm standing in this election."

The election starts on 28 October.
