Worst election result ever? TUSC gets zero votes

tuscAfter getting routinely thumped by the Elvis Loves Pets party in the Eastleigh by-election, where else can your vote go except … down?


All is not what it seems. There are dirty tricks afoot. It emerges that the candidate and his wife claim to have voted for TUSC. I smell a rat.

    Gower is a seat which until last Friday was the longest held Labour seat in the UK. It was lost by 27 votes to the Tories. The TUSC candidate took 103 votes.

    It’s had to come to any conclusion other than TUSC – by standing in a knife edge marginal and against a working class Labour Party candidate, who they know is committed socialist and was an elected union rep with PCS – were doing this to make sure Labour lost. They got their way. One less socialist, working class MP. Well done TUSC.

    Exactly Mike. Pure vanity politics. People have pointed out the same thing in Tower Hamlets where the Tories, Greens and Lib Dems have let in Lutfur Rahman’s candidates at the expense of good Labour ones.
