Nick Chaffey, Southampton Socialist Party Sadly it wasn’t Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-austerity policies that were on offer in Southampton but his right-wing Blairite opponent, Labour council leader Simon Letts’ and his fellow councillors who have cruelly voted to close disabled services.

Solidarity with Portsmouth RMT campaign for a living wage at sea! Support the struggle against poverty pay on Condor Ferries, paying £2.30 an hour to Ukrainian crew, with the connivance of Portsmouth city councillors who refuse to lift a finger against this outrage. 16 July 2014 One million public sector workers were on strike last […]
