EVERY RESPECT activist and voter will want a copy of next week's Socialist Worker. It will have results and analysis telling the truth about what the votes show. The paper will be printed early, on Monday evening, and be with sellers on Tuesday. It will include:
Full results for Respect.
Reactions from candidates, supporters and figures in the unions and the anti-war movement.
Analysis of the overall result and the voting in Europe.
All the usual Socialist Worker news and features, including news from the PCS and CWU union conferences.
Rita McLoughlin from Manchester says there are already plans in her area: 'On Tuesday morning we will set up a stall at the railway station and have sales outside civil service offices and council workplaces. We will be visiting fire stations and selling at the main post depot. There will be more stalls in the city centre later in the day, plus we're going round shops in Cheetham Hill, where we stood a Respect candidate in the council elections. On Tuesday at about 5.30pm we are trying to get as many sellers together as possible to make sure the paper is widely distributed. We are trying to get everyone to ensure they take the paper to all the people they met during the campaign.'
To make sure of your copy give your name and address to your local seller or phone 020 7538 3305.
The timetable for the election results
THE ELECTION results will come out at different times.
Thursday night/Friday morning Local council election results.
Friday The count for the London mayor and assembly begins at 8.30am. The constituency results will start coming through in the afternoon. The mayor and the list results are expected at around 5.30pm (depending on the turnout and the efficiency of the technology!).
Sunday The result of the European elections in Britain cannot be announced until polling stations close in the rest of Europe. This means the results will be announced between 9pm and 10pm.
