A piece of cake

Elsewhere 110 papers were sold in Birmingham, 47 in both Dudley and Cardiff, and 39 in Salford Precinct, while in Camden 25 were sold both at Queens Crescent market and in Gospel Oak.

Meanwhile sellers in Southwark's East Street market, after selling 44 papers campaigning in defence of asylum seekers, got a treat when a stallholder gave each one a slice of carrot cake! Outside workplaces Socialist Worker sales this week included 28 papers at Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley, 7 at Coventry post office, 5 at Westbourne bus garage in west London, and 4 at both King's College Hospital and Blackfriars Road job centre.
