TORIES AND UKIP HAVE MORE CAMPAIGNING FUNDS
The Tories are on course to become debt free as a party for the first time in the party's history.
The Electoral Commission might be able to declare the Tory party debt-free by August.
In 2010, the Tories spent around £17 million on campaigning for the general election.
UKIP has some of the richest people in England as donors.
LABOUR DEEP IN DEBTGordon Brown's New Labour suffered defeat because Labour voters just folded up their arms and did not vote for any party in 2010.
In 2010, New Labour had spent £8 million on general election campaigning.
Now Labour has debts of around £12 million, according to the Electoral Commission, by end 2013.
Labour is in the process of losing the automatic signing-up of millions of union members to the Labour party.
UNITE union (biggest contributor to Labour) will cut its donation to Labour to around £1.5 million by affiliating just 500,000 members of its 1 million members, and review the number annually.
Why does not UNITE take all of its members' affiliations now from Labour?
The GMB union has already cut funding by £1 million to Labour.
Why does GMB not take all affiliations now?
Labour's massive debts makes them dependent on union cash.
HOW TRADE UNIONS COULD SAVE LIVES FROM MAY 22, AS WELL AS FROM 2015?
Labour's ageing voters are conservative on welfare and immigration, and more likely to be within the squeezed middle, so that is why Labour is the party losing votes to UKIP, not the Tories.
Labour does not represent the working class today at all, who actually are made up of:
- working poor,
- poor pensioners (with all sources of pension or lack of it giving income below £12,299 a year (2012 figure),
- half of women 60-66 in working poor, losing state pension payout at 60 and worse to come from 2016.
- See if you lose most or all of your state pension: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/state-pension-at-60-now
- homeless / unemployed / enslaved in Workfare young people
- disabled and chronic sick losing benefits, forced onto Workfare slavery even above 60
This working class is at least 13 million who struggle to make ends meet each day.
Why are trade unions not putting forward a billboard poster campaign to give brand awareness to a party with trade union in the party name and union members within it?
Trade Unionist and Socialist Against Cuts
(links on my personal website's home page: www.theswansnewparty.org.uk
And other parties with a socialist agenda for the working class, that offer such things as rising wages of council frontline staff by cutting management pay:
ASK YOUR TRADE UNION TODAY TO TAKE AWAY AFFILIATION FROM LABOUR
So why are you, as a union member, not asking your trade union to disaffiliate your membership from Labour?
Ask your trade union why they they are not paying for more billboard posters and newspaper advertising for such socialist parties as the above?
Below are some of the reasons why Labour is bad for you.
LABOUR IS NOT THE PARTY OF THE WORKING CLASS
Labour began welfare reform, brought in Atos that pays no corporation tax, invented the Bedroom Tax, will continue Tory spending plans and be even harder on welfare reform than the Tories in 2015, and will continue Workfare.
Labour agreed with the welfare cap, driving people out of homes in London and so losing best opportunity for work.
New Labour brought in the sanctions regime and replaced unemployment benefits with the Jobseekers Allowance, where the Jobcentres refer sanctioned claimants now to food banks.
Labour has never once said about leaving people with no money for food by sanctioned benefits to young families / old / disabled/sick / young homeless.
In a nation where food banks only feed you 3 times in a year.
Whilst everywhere else in the developed world, the poor are fed every day in local government / charity canteens giving a free cooked meal and hot drink.
The economic recovery is mostly just happening down in London.
UK is a leader in low pay, with a legal minimum wage nowhere near a living wage and way down the league of the developed world as a percentage of the average UK wage of £31,000 per year.
Low pay has flat-lined down to the levels of 2002 and before.
The economic recovery is being driven by insecure money from low income self-employment, zero hour contracts, part time casual of the working class today (people below half of average wage around £31,000 per year) and so hitting hardest:
- young people,
- women and
- ethnic minorities.
Half of people in poverty are those in work.
Labour has again and again sacked Labour party members, who as councillors have voted against council funding cuts to frontline services.
HOW LABOUR MPs COULD BECOME SOCIALIST TODAY?
If Labour MPs actually cared about the working class, then sitting Labour MPs would convert immediately to the socialist parties offering the wellbeing of millions of people today and running on those party tickets for 2015 general election.
And Labour MPs would support the socialist candidates running for councillor posts in May 22 elections of such as TUSC.
