Spelthorne election campaign
In Spelthorne we got 176 votes, but you could hear a pin drop when I warned the mainstream parties of the links we have built with local trade unionists who will fight the cuts to come.
If someone had offered us unanimous support from the local RMT and from activists in the FBU, the POA, the cabin crew strikers and Unison, with half a dozen potential new Socialist Party members thrown in for good measure, at the cost of four weeks hard slog and about £2,000, we would have taken them up - this election gave us all that and more.
Well done to each and every TUSC candidate, campaigner and activist and to everyone who had the confidence and faith in working people to vote socialist and vote TUSC.
If you still haven't joined the socialist party, now is definitely the time.
Paul Couchman, Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition
