Clarke wants even more cuts - what should we do?

Ken Clarke is clearly competing with Peter Mandelson to sound tough on spending. He admits that if the Tories get in the cuts will be worse than under Thatcher. A cheery thought over our Sunday breakfast. Not.

We need to step up support for those Members of Parliament and Candidates who will stand alongside the working class in opposition to the coming attacks on public services.

We also need to campaign for alternative policies for the Labour Party and for the Peoples' Charter, as a set of demands, endorsed by the Trades Union Congress, around which to unite opposition to twenty first-century monetarism.

UNISON members and branches should be signing up to the Million Voices campaign - and working alongside colleagues in PCS in particular in the run up to the election to put pressure on candidates seeking our votes.
