From The Socialist newspaper, 25 May 2001

Socialist Alliance hits the airwaves

THE SOCIALIST Alliance election broadcasts went out on Tuesday 22 May and generated a huge response from people interested in socialism.

Socialist Party councillor Dave Nellist was the presenter of the radio election broadcast which went out on BBC and commercial radio.

And film director Ken Loach's party election broadcast appeared on BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5.

Actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, who plays Haley in Coronation Street has decided to switch her support from Labour to the Socialist Alliance.

She says that she finds Tony Blair "pseudo-presidential, egomaniacal and quite flippin' scary".

Julie commented: "Politicians clamour to be associated with Coronation Street. It's the common touch thing - let's make out we're just like ordinary folk because we watch Corrie, too.

"And it's also a nice distraction method: it's like, get everybody fired up about freeing Deidre, then they'll all be more interested in what's going on in Weatherfield than what's going on in Westminster and Iraq."
