Liverpool: Standing against 'death by cuts'
Socialist Party member Charley Cosgrove is standing for TUSC in the Knotty Ash ward in the Liverpool city council byelection on Thursday 15 November.
The byelection follows the resignation of a Labour councillor. Like all TUSC candidates, Charley would vote against the cuts and privatisation.
Liverpool's Labour mayor, Joe Anderson, said the cuts would mean: "that people will die - end of." But Anderson and the Labour council are continuing their cuts drive. School uniform grants are one of the latest victims.
Campaigners are leafleting and canvassing the ward, particularly around the Dovecot and Broad Green Hospital areas, building support for TUSC by promoting the anti 'death by cuts' message across the city.
