The current crisis in housing, education, health and pollution are part of a wider crisis in a capitalist system where wealth is concentrated in the hands of the few by the exploitation of the many. I believe the solution is not nationalism and scapegoating of different sections of our community but a fair redistribution of wealth with essential services like energy, transport and housing put into democratic public ownership.
The only way to do this is with a political party run and financed by its members rather than big business. With over half a million members, the Labour Party is the best for the job. So you can make a good start by voting for me, Mary and Emma on Thursday 3rd May in Fair Oak and Horton Heath.
In recent years Mary and I, together with local people, campaigned outside Fair Oak Library against its proposed closure. We found a lot of residents, particularly parents and retired people, relied on the library and it brought those generations together. We were successful in our efforts and at that time the Council found extra funding to keep this important facility open, but many of us would like to see an end to such threats of cuts.
