THE PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY PLANS TO TAKE DOWN TORY GOVERNMENT
 

Star date: 5th November 2017

PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLY LAUNCHES PROGRAMME TO REPLACE AUSTERITY

"The Tories are not fit to continue in office...our movement needs to go beyond protest to organising to bring them down..."

The People's Assembly, which has roots in Manchester and Salford, has recently launched a pamphlet, In Place of Austerity: A Programme For The People, full of myths, truths, anger and solutions.

The Assembly has also called an Eve of Budget Protest to 'shine a light on Tory failure' for 21st November at Manchester Convention Centre.

The People's Assembly, which organised the huge demonstrations in Manchester during the Tory Conference recently and is linked to no political party, has launched a new 28 page pamphlet, In Place of Austerity: A Programme For The People, which doesn't mince its words...

"It is essential that we, together with the Trade Unions, continue to build the mass movement further to force the Tories out of office, and to help elect and sustain a future anti-austerity progressive government – which, of course, would be under fierce attack by the bankers, big business monopoly corporations and their pet politicians and media. This is the clear aim of the People's Assembly..."

The pamphlet bluntly states on its first page that austerity is "a crime against the people"...

"The real aim of austerity was to stabilise the post crisis economy in favour of the bankers and big business billionaires, raising the rate of profit at the expense of the working class" it adds "In that they have succeeded, and will continue to do so, if we let them..."

First the pamphlet gives the bad news about loss of jobs, pay freezes and pay caps, zero hours contracts, privatisations, cuts and poverty, before giving the alternative for 'rebuilding public services'; including restoration of benefits, democratic control of the NHS, the building of affordable new homes and abolishing student fees.

It is to be paid for by measures to bring in £100billion annually, including clamping down on tax avoidance, ending tax havens, a wealth tax of 2% on the richest one tenth of the population, raising Corporation Tax, introducing the Robin Hood Tax on financial transactions...and lots more.

The People's Assembly is also for a 'People's Brexit'...

"There is recognition that much of the People's Programme could not be achieved under European Union rules" it states "Many people who voted against Brexit did so because they feared what the next steps might be in austerity Britain. But many who voted to leave the European Union did so because of its fierce imposition of austerity economics and politics across Europe, its privatisation and anti-union directives and court judgements, and EU punishment of the people of countries that dared to vote for anti-austerity governments.

"We need to unite those who voted either way in the referendum in favour of a 'People's Brexit' – and integrate this into our growing movement" it adds.

For anyone who needs to argue against austerity policies being pushed in the mainstream media and by the Tory Government, this pamphlet is ideal...

Langworthy is part of the bigger picture. If Tories increase their vote share from disappointed Labour locals and from new builds the MP seat and Mayor seat will go Tory. Langworthy like Kersal is the testing ground. Teasing people to ditch Labour, the Tories will pick their best flagship name as part of the big picture. Crafty Tories. Felsey is either a daft man or he is incredibly bright to be a part of destroying Salford Labour. Who is the Tories real brain behind this masterplan? I am guessing it is a certain Councillor.

Reading between the lines Mr Circle and Mr Wrote do right to be afraid of Felsey getting picked by the Tories. I know Michael from his support at the Cornerstone and St Luke's and across the local community. If he wins Langworthy the Salford Labour is doomed.

On August 30th old Felsey said he "Would welcome the chance to be a Consercative candidate" . On September 13th he said people sould support Mike Pevitt in the Claremont election. On September 26th he said "Welcom back Labour" and on September 27th he said people should vote for Mary Ferrer in Claremont. I think in that time he was also going to ask Corbyn for memebersip of the Labour party, head a "vision trust for Saford reds" and probably many other things. Wasn't he doing to form the "Truth first" or "Hurt free" party or something. Somebody please pick him as a candidate (Michael raving Felse party?)just so he can see how unpopular he is. His trolling of nearly every article is very tedious.

I do hope thr tories do pick MJF as a candidate; then perhaps he will get the message, after the vote, that no-one is interested in his urging, his demands and his butterfly flitting from party to party. Of course even the tories are really not stupid enough to pick him.

Rather a one sided rant. I do feel Tories are trying to find modern solutions. In fact I fancy my chances if Salford Tories can pick me to be the Langworthy by election Tory candidate should election be called at some point. I know Langworthy residents are fed up to their back teeth as far as Labour policies can be thrown.
