Socialist Party UK : Come to Lewisham

The following is an email received by myself from Sarah of the TUSC.

A2ed supports the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition.

Now the election has been called we are getting a better response from people so please come out and canvas or leaflet with us to keep the Socialist Party councillors in Lewisham. This is an urgent task!

Please call me to let me know if you can come.

I met Jack from Basildon and he said he would come if he was contacted.

The manifestos of the main parties avoid the main issues of the day and are unstintingly anti-working class in content, pretending to offer choice. In reality, as we know, it will be more of the same... cuts, cuts, cuts...

Canvassing and leafleting

We're out Monday - Sunday at 11am, 2pm and 6pm for two-hour slots.

I know it's a lot to ask but there's only 20 odd days until 6 May. Once people know we're standing they are happy to hear there's an alternative to the sound-bite politics of the machete-wielding big business parties.

Take care,

Sarah Sachs-Eldridge

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
