    Martin Ralph, candidate of Old Swan Against the Cuts in Liverpool says on his election statement that he is also a member of the International Socialist League, a little known ‘Morenist’ group.

  2. Stephen Hall says:

    Eric Hyland is standing in the Bolton MBC area for Left Unity in the Tonge with The Haulgh Ward

    I think TUSC also have candidates standing in the City of Salford in up to 7 wards

    Jackie Armstrong is standing in Irlam & Cadishead Ward for The Reality Party (Barton Moss is in this Ward) who are amongst other things against fracking.

  3. Stephen Hall says:

    Correction: It’s Jackie Anderson standing for The Reality Party in the Irlam Ward (which is adjacent to Barton Moss)

    The Salford City Council candidates standing for TUSC are:

    Cadishead: Diane Cawood
    Barton: Susan Wright
    Swinton South: Steve Cullen
    Little Hulton: Terry Simmons
    Broughton: Alan Metcalfe
    Ordsall: Sally Griffiths
    Irwell Riverside: Graham Cooper
    Claremont: Matthew Kilsby
    Weaste & Seedley: Paul Quinn

  7. Harry Blackwell says:

    Old Swan Against the Cuts Martin Ralph 296 8.5%
    3rd in a very crowded field (behind Labour and UKIP, but ahead of Green, Liberal, LibDem, Tory and English Democrats).

    (NB Martin Ralph is a member of the International Socialist League, an organisation based in Liverpool linked with one of the splinters from the Fourth International associated at one time with the Argentine Trotskyist factionalist, Nahuel Moreno. The ISL have recently been permitted to join the International Socialist Network, a split last year from the British SWP. The ISN have supported Left Unity.)
