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.

Standing against Harriet Harman

Author: 

Mark Osborn

The Alliance for Workers’ Liberty plans to stand against the Labour Party’s deputy leader, Harriet Harman, in the next general election. Harman is MP for the working-class constituency of Camberwell and Peckham in south east London.

As Secretary of State for Social Security, Harman fronted-up New Labour’s attacks on the welfare state following the 1997 election. She has slavishly followed Blair and then Brown, and voted for the Iraq war.

We hope this strike will be the start of a strong campaign by the public sector unions which will beat back the New Labour government's plan to drive down real wages across the public sector for three years.
