Socialist Alliance

Issue No. 1840

FIREFIGHTER SYD Platt received nearly 5 percent of the vote for the Socialist Alliance in a council by-election in the Haverstock ward in Camden, north London, last week.

The Labour vote collapsed in what was previously a solid Labour area. The main beneficiaries were the Liberals, who won the seat from Labour with 746 votes. The Socialist Alliance, arguing for a genuine socialist alternative to Labour, got 84 votes, a credible 4.8 percent.
