    Vote TUSC


    0 Not allowed!
    PUBLIC OWNERSHIP, NOT PRIVATE PROFIT
    Stop all privatisation, including the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). Bring privatised public services, industries and utilities back into public ownership under democratic control, with compensation only on the basis of proven need.
    No to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and all secret austerity treaties.

    NO CUTS - FOR QUALITY PUBLIC SERVICES
    Re-nationalise all rail, bus and ferry services to build an integrated, low-pollution public transport system. Take Royal Mail back into public ownership to guarantee our postal services. Bring prisons, probation, and all other parts of the justice system back into the public sector.
    For a high-quality, free National Health Service under democratic public ownership and control.
    Stop council estate sell-offs and build high-standard, eco-friendly, affordable council housing.
    No to academies and 'free schools'. Good, free education for all, under democratic local authority control; student grants not fees.

    JOBS, NOT HANDOUTS TO THE BANKERS AND BILLIONAIRES
    Bring banks and finance institutions into genuine public ownership under democratic control, instead of giving huge handouts to the very capitalists who caused the crisis.
    Tax the rich. For progressive tax on rich corporations and individuals and an end to tax avoidance.
    For massive investment in environmental projects.

    EMPLOYMENT AND TRADE UNION RIGHTS
    Repeal the anti-trade union laws, reverse attacks on facility time and the right to collect subs by check-off for trade unions, particularly in the public-sector.
    Support the TUC's demand to increase the minimum wage to £10 an hour, and for it then to rise in line with inflation or wages, whichever is higher.
    Scrap zero hour contracts. Guaranteed hours and full employment rights for all. Cut the working week to 35 hours with no loss of pay.
    Invest to create and protect jobs, including for young people.
    Solidarity with workers taking action to defend jobs, conditions, pensions, public services and trade unions. Reinstate full trade union rights to prison officers.

    PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT - STOP GLOBAL WARMING
    Deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions - otherwise climate change, caused by capitalism, will destroy us.
    Invest in publicly-owned and controlled renewable energy. Oppose fracking.
    Move to sustainable, low-pollution industry and farming - stop the pollution that is destroying our environment. No to profit-driven GM technology.
    Produce for need, not profit, and design goods for reuse and recycling.

    DECENT PENSIONS AND BENEFITS
    Abolish the bedroom tax.
    Reverse cuts to benefits; for living benefits; end child poverty. Scrap benefit sanctions.
    Restore the pre-Thatcher real value of pensions. Reverse the increases imposed on the state retirement age, creating jobs for younger people.

    STOP THE ATTACKS ON DISABLED PEOPLE
    Promote inclusive policies to enable disabled people to participate in, and have equal access to, education, employment, housing, transport and welfare provision.
    Support measures to ensure disabled people receive a level of income according to needs. Equal pay for equal work.

    DEMOCRACY, DIVERSITY AND JUSTICE
    Welcome diversity and oppose racism, fascism and discrimination. Defend the right to asylum, repeal the 2014 Immigration Act and all racist immigration controls.
    Ensure women have genuinely equal rights and pay.
    Full equality for LGBT people.
    Defend our liberties and make police and security democratically accountable.
    For the right to vote at 16.

    SOLIDARITY NOT WAR
    No to imperialist wars and occupations!
    Justice for the Palestinians, lift the siege of Gaza, recognise the state of Palestine.
    No more spending on a new generation of nuclear weapons, huge aircraft carriers or irrelevant eurofighters - convert arms spending into socially useful products and services.
    An independent foreign policy, based on international solidarity - no more being a US poodle, no moves towards a capitalist, militarist United States of Europe. No to austerity and anti-working class policies, whether from the EU or Britain.

    SOCIALISM
    For a democratic socialist society run in the interests of people not millionaires. For bringing into democratic public ownership the major companies and banks that dominate the economy, so that production and services can be planned to meet the needs of all and to protect the environment.

      Looks like Len Goodman's love child.
      If we lived in a perfect place nobody would vote Tory.

      Thought trotskyists are revolutionary?

      TUSC will never get support because the British left are incapable of organising, let alone agreeing on anything.

      I use to roll with the Socialist Party (not the SWP, their bitter rivals). I was there when the TUSC was formed by the National Shop Stewards or whatever their name is in 2010, immediately the SWP tried to hijack the event, when they didn't have the support they turned their guns on them. It has never been an effective radical movement because it doesn't have the grassroots support.

      In 5 years during austerity, they've made no ground.

      Armed revolution I say, shotgun I wear the beret whilst I'm being photographed with a fist in the air.

      That wasted a few more minutes of my life.

      I heard their election broadcast on the radio at lunch. I thought it was a parody.

      Good to see Brighton political veteran, Dave Hill, still on the go. Whatever we think of his views, most of us will engage in this election by giving some thought to the government we'd like to see elected. But it does no harm to be reminded occasionally that a few people still have ideals.
      не съгласявам се!

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?
