General Election 2009/10

RMT decides not to back "son of No2EU"

Prospects for the "son of No2EU" coalition for the coming general election look poor. The Executive of the RMT rail union has adopted a policy on the General Election that does not include backing the coalition.

The groups which took part in the "No2EU" coalition for the Euro-elections of June 2009 - the Communist Party of Britain (Morning Star), the Socialist Party, and the Alliance for Green Socialism - have been meeting since then to try to agree on a new coalition for the general election.

The RMT rail union Executive has voted not to back the "son of No2EU" coalition for the coming general election.

I am standing in the general election in the south-east London constituency of Camberwell and Peckham, against New Labour deputy leader and loyal New Labour hack Harriet Harman. I am standing to assert a workers’ voice in politics and build the fight for a workers’ government.

Shadow Chancellor George Osborne says he wants £23 billion of cuts. Yet this huge figure, involving deep cuts in the public sector and a massive attack on the living standards of millions of workers, will take him only one sixth of the way towards his stated goal of halving the deficit.

Jill Mountford is standing in the general election in the south-east London constituency of Camberwell and Peckham to assert a workers’ voice in politics and build the fight for a workers’ government.

As I understand it, the groups involved in No2EU have been discussing a follow-up for the general election...

The first thing to say is that we don't think of it as a follow-up to No2EU. We think of it as a plan for the general election.

Mike Davies, secretary of the Alliance for Green Socialism, one of the groups that joined the No2EU coalition at the Euro-elections in June, spoke to Martin Thomas about prospects for a further coalition for the general election.
