May Day

Happy May Day one and all!

On Saturday we had a march through Cambridge to defend the Public Sector. Bizarrely, on our way into the market square we bumped into the Bishop of Jerusalem. Apparently he was on his way to speak somewhere, but offered to speak at the rally. He eloquently described the degradation and suffering of those under occupation in Iraq and Palestine, and called for the troops to leave. One of those moments that you have to see to believe.

I've been in and out of Tower Hamlets several times in the past few weeks helping with the Respect Campaign. As far as we're concerned we're fighting to win, and the mood is fantastic. Tom, now joined by Sam and Denise, is also doing well in Romsey. There's no doubt that Respect represents a real option for ever increasing numbers of people sick of the rotten politics of the main three parties.

It's exam term so I'm forcing myself to do philosophy, which means I'll probably be polluting the web with rantings and ramblings over the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled.

Hopefully this year will, once again, put a major left wing election breakthrough in the same week as both my birthday and the International Worker's Day. Go on, vote Respect.

No RESPECT council but I reckon with the Labour people that are left it will b probs the most left wing council in the country.

Sorry that Michael Keith lost his seat. U didn't deserve to mate and are a commited moderniser of great integrity. Good luck personally and the new Tower Hamlets council in the future.

Great that Tower Hamlets will be a left wing council from now on.
I am not sorry that Micheal Keith lost his seat as he represented the worst policies of nulabour, privisation, sleaze and war. Sorry but the man had to go and good ridance I say.

Michael Keith represnted everything that was good abt nu labour. The man had modernising tendencies and was full of integrity. He represented true socialism whatever party he came from.
