Brent TUSC press release…Brent Central Candidate to Stand as “Workers MP on a Workers Wage”

Brent Central Trade Unionist & Socialist Coalition (TUSC) candidate John Boyle has declared that if he was elected he would only take the average wage of a skilled worker in the constituency and donate the rest back to campaigns fighting cuts, privatisation and austerity.

John said “This is an example of our commitment to follow through our words with action and be a genuine political voice for the interests of ordinary people”.

This declaration follows in the footsteps of Dave Nellist national chair of TUSC who was an MP for 9 years in the eighties and only accepted a workers wage for his whole period of office.

John went on to say “We reject the current political establishment where MP’s of all parties award themselves with huge pay raises and get embroiled in expenses and cash for questions scandals. I will stand to champion the concerns and campaigns shoulder to shoulder with ordinary people. I think this kind of stance is needed to win people back to politics and prove that we amount to more than a bunch of slick PR soundbites. I challenge other candidates in Brent Central who claim they are standing in the interests of ordinary people in Brent to back up their words and make the same pledge”.
