London TUSC candidate condemns Newham's housing 'expulsion' outrage
Speaking about Labour's plans in Newham to expel low income families from the borough, Alex Gordon, TUSC lead candidate for the London Assembly and President of the National Union of Rail, Maritime & Transport Workers (RMT) said:
"The contrast between the government's lavish expenditure on the 2012 Olympics and Queen's Jubilee with the treatment of families being deported from Newham like refugees in their own country is sickening.
This grotesque and authoritarian abuse of some of the most vulnerable families in London exposes once again a political system in London run by and for a rich elite, which treats the rest of society like cattle.
TUSC candidates in the GLA election are calling for affordable homes for all, a halt to council house sales and massive investment in a new program of high quality, green home building to provide skills, education and employment for Londoners."
