From The Socialist newspaper, 29 March 2007

For the millions...

not the millionaires!

Vote Socialist Alternative on 3 May

THE ELECTIONS on 3 May will be the last with Tony Blair as prime minister. Unfortunately, his policies of low pay, cuts in public services, privatisation and warmongering will continue after he goes.

Hannah Sell

All three big establishment parties are competing to see who can do most to help the billionaires. Gordon Brown has made it absolutely clear he will continue with Blair's privatising policies. He has said he will 'accelerate' reform in the NHS, and has earmarked another 50 million worth of public assets for privatisation.

The Socialist Party is standing in these elections to offer a Socialist Alternative. Our candidates are listed on the right. We are standing alongside other socialists in the Socialist Green Unity Coalition.

However, we are also supporting all those candidates who are genuinely fighting privatisation and cuts. This year these will include NHS campaigners, local government workers and pensioners - many of whom have decided to stand in different local areas in order to oppose the cuts.

Socialist Party member Ian Slattery is standing on behalf of Huddersfield Save our NHS in Crosland Moor & Netherton ward, where Socialist Party member Dr Jackie Grunsell was elected with a landslide majority last year.

Nine days after the local elections the Campaign for a New Workers' Party will be holding its second conference. We aim to bring together socialists and anti-cuts campaigners who contested the elections to discuss how to build a new mass alternative that stands for the millions not the millionaires.
