Anti-Cuts Councillor Don Thomas wins 1000 vote majority!

Congratulations to Don Thomas, re-elected as Coxford anti-cuts councillor by close to 1000 vote majority. He rejoins his anti-cuts councillor  Keith Morrell to continue to the fight against austerity and put an alternative forward on Southampton City Council to the axe-wielding Labour council. Southampton TUSC gave its active support to Don’d campaign as well as standing across the city in council and Westminster elections.

Celebrating outside the count with Don & Keith!

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) national steering committee held its first post-election meeting this week. Against the backdrop of a Tory-majority government committed to accelerated austerity, albeit one with the lowest ever share of support amongst the total electorate (24.4%), the need the build on the TUSC campaign to develop a socialist electoral alternative was recognised by all at the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) post-election national steering committee.

The meeting agreed a vote of thanks to all the 748 candidates – and their agents and campaign teams – who contested the elections on May 7th under the TUSC umbrella, polling a combined total of 118,125 votes.
