I have a question.
Does anyone have any knowledge of what names will be on this “Progressive List” for the GLA elections, apart from George Galloway’s?
If I can make a humble suggestion to Respect Renewal’s governing clique, I’d like to put in a good word for my favourite RR councillor, Harun Miah. He’s a man of passionately progressive political views, as evinced by his thoughts on socialism:
As for socialism, it does provide some sort of justice, some sort of equality. I agree with that. As long as it doesn’t breach the rights of others. Of course, Respect has socialism as an element, but it’s not the only element, is it? There are other concerns.
And what’s more, his knowledge of labour movement politics is just as formidable:
I do favour trade unionism. We need all the trade we can get, so we have to help them.
George, pick up the phone. You know it makes sense.
