From The Socialist newspaper, 30 April 2015

Why I'm standing for TUSC

Terence Anderson, TUSC council candidate for Normanton (Derby)

I first came across TUSC on a campaign stall in Allenton. I realised we had the same ideals. I would like to save the NHS, nationalise our industries, defend public services.

Labour councillors are voting for cuts because they are scared they'll be kicked out of the party. Surely they can see what the cuts are doing to our community. Is it that they can't say no to cuts - or is it that they don't want to?

This is why I joined TUSC in this fight. On being asked to stand, I said yes. Why would I not grab this opportunity to represent my community?
