Can you tell the difference between Labour, Tories and LibDems?
As council leaders stand for re-election, can you spot the difference?
With TUSC candidates you can, across Southampton we won’t vote for cuts!
What is the difference between Simon Letts, Royston Smith and Adrian Vinson?
After Tory cuts to jobs and services, we now have had two years of Labour cuts to jobs and services. The Lib Dems continue to prop up the hated cuts coalition in Westminster.
No wonder 70% of Southampton doesn’t vote, when all parties dish out the cuts but see their own MPs and councillors sink their snouts in the expenses and pay trough and hand out contracts to their friends in big business.
People are suffering a huge rise in the cost of living though council tax, council rents, VAT and utility bills. Food banks are growing across the city.
What we need are more councillors, like Keith Morrell and Don Thomas in Coxford, Southampton, who refuse to implement the cuts and fight for the necessary funding from central government to meet the urgent needs of the city for jobs, affordable housing and community services for the young, elderly and vulnerable.
While the Labour council is celebrating 50 years of Southampton city status, the £30 million cuts planned by Labour for next years budget will guarantee more misery for the majority. Is this what Labour meant when they said they would be “Your friend in tough times?”
That is why candidates across the city are standing as Trade Unionists and Socialist Against Cuts to offer the only alternative to the austerity council policies in the city.
