TUSC BY ELECTION CAMPAIGN GETS GOOD RESPONSE!

 

TUSC supporters and TUSC candidate Liat Norris have done three very successful campaign stalls in Norton including outside the Co-op on Knypersley Road. This has led to us being invited by a local residents association to attend one of their meetings. And when Stuart went across the road to get some coffees from the Methodist Church drop in centre he was asked to explain to many people in there what our campaign was all about. And many of them were sympathetic!

One fella told us, “The trouble with this country is that we have too many riots when what we really need is a revolution!”

Our first TUSC stall in Milton again outside the Co-op was also well recieved by the people we spoke to. In fact, the brother of one of independent election candidates signed our petition and agreed that we need someone in the council ,”Who will fight to stop the cuts”. A woman told us, “It’s about time somebody stood up against this council’s cuts, thanks for what you are doing.

Our message is quite simple; Over the last few years this Labour run council has carried out £77 million worth of cuts. As a result swimming pools, care homes, children’s centres , libraries and many other vital services have been closed and thousands of council workers jobs have gone.

But the most worrying thing is that the council plans to cut another massive £100 million from our services over the next four years. If they are allowed to get away with this then there will be no services left. Therfore we have to get rid of the nodding dogs on the council who are dutifully carrying out the Con Dem government’s cuts. We need councillors who will FIGHT AGAINST ALL CUTS.

This is the reason why we, TUSC, are standing anti cuts candidate Liat Norris who will do just that – FIGHT AGAINST ALL CUTS. This is why we need you to vote for us.
In response many are saying they will vote for us and some say they will think about it.

Even young lads in Norton and their bonfire night guy support TUSC! Can you spot where the TUSC stickers are?

Our leaflet is also being well recieved. Last Monday evening Andy and John braved the heavy rain to do over an hour leafleting homes with our new leaflet. On Tuesday morning we recieved a text from a fella who was extremely impressed with what we had to say in the leaflet.

So impressed in fact he said, “How do I vote and where do I vote!”. We have now got him on the electoral register so he can vote for TUSC! He also said he was going to take the message of TUSC to his friends to tell them that “they now had an alternative to vote for.” We have since got another man added to the electoral register so that he can vote for us as well.
