Socialist Party says

Thursday's elections showed anger and fragmentation

Running up to the May elections the Labour Party right wing - with the full backing of the capitalist class - set out to damage their own party's chances in order to achieve what is, for them, a greater goal: undermining Jeremy Corbyn. The anti-Semitism uproar - initially relating to comments made by Naz Shah when Ed Miliband was leader - was a cynical attempt to try to prepare the ground for a coup against Corbyn, hoping that the local election results would then provide further ammunition.

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) stood parliamentary candidates across Britain.

The results were uneven. In some areas TUSC candidates received small but encouraging votes.

In Tottenham, north London, Jenny Sutton increased her share of the vote to 3.1 percent from 2.6 percent in 2010.

TUSC election results

TUSC only stood against councillors who were not prepared to pledge themselves against making cuts.

Super-Thursday elections - the TUSC results

The final Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) results from Thursday's elections are in. In total 43,309 votes were cast for TUSC candidates, a good showing for a clear 100% anti-austerity message.

The highlight of the campaign was the performance of the UNISON national executive member Roger Bannister, standing on behalf of TUSC for the mayor of Liverpool, who came in fourth ahead of Britain's governing party, with 4,950 votes (a 5.1% share). For the second time, following Tony Mulhearn's result in the 2012 Liverpool mayoral election, TUSC has outpolled the Tories in Britain's eighth biggest city.
