With a Tory majority government now elected for a five year term, the meeting of the Left Platform  on Tuesday 12 May is critically important.  As working class people face a Tory programme of harsh cuts, privatisation, and attacks on civil liberties including trades union rights, it is vital that the Left meets to discuss what role we can play in resisting the Tories.

We must ignore feelings of despondency, to get on with the job of organising the resistance to the Tories’ plans.  CLASS has begun by suggesting five ways to deal with the Tory government.

Be bold Labour

The election of the new Labour Party leader offers trades unions the chance to publicise a shortlist of key policy demands, invite all candidates to say where they stand on each, and publish candidates’ responses.  Jon Rogers explains that this would inform union and Labour members, and improve the links between the Labour Party and the trades unions.

Ian Lavery and Andy Burnham are two names being touted as possible candidates from the Left in the Labour leadership election.  We hope to hear more from the Socialist Campaign Group of MPs at the Left Platform on Tuesday 12 May 2015.  Register now to attend the Left Platform!
