I work at the University of Hull and sit on the UCU LA committee as membership secretary and campaigns officer. I’m also a member of the Green Party, as I see this as the only viable anti-capitalist economic policy based party out there. They have an MP in Caroline Lucas who campaigns against all public sector cuts and for social justice. This would by my plan should the good people of Newland ward in Hull care to vote for me in the local elections. Vote Green – say no to neoliberal party politics and corporations that avoid taxes and only satisfy senior managers and shareholders. Say no to political parties that spread racist views to split society by fear and those that demonise and exploit the weakest in society, making them pay for the excesses and failings of capitalism. Say yes to communities and not-for profit cooperatives.
