General Election Called - Vote Socialist on July 4th

June 10, 2024

After 14 years of the Tories, our services and communities are crumbling and wages cover less and less. Millions will be glad to see the back of them – but we need a real alternative.

While running local councils in Birmingham, Sandwell and elsewhere, Labour have helped the Tories slash services and allowed landlords and property developers to make fat profits while social housing declines.

We can’t trust Labour to stand up to the super rich and powerful. We need an MP who can be a voice for working class people in Birmingham and beyond.

That's why Socialist Party members are standing in Erdington and Smethwick as part of a challenge by 40 Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition candidates across Britain.

Trade unionist and local parent Corinthia Ward is standing in Erdington, and was a key part of the victorious campaign by Birmingham homecare workers against pay cuts in 2018-19. And in Smethwick, local school worker Ravaldeep Bath will be the socialist candidate.

If elected, they will only take the average wage of a skilled worker in Erdington and use the position to organise local people to fight back against council cuts, bad bosses and cowboy landlords.

There is vast wealth in Britain - no-one should have to be cold, homeless or hungry. If the capitalist system won’t provide that, we need to change it for a socialist one that works for us!
