If the Tories get back in, we’re in deep trouble. For me, this is the third year of living in fear of the bedroom tax. 

Every day is a day of survival. Benefit claimants have been suffering under the Tories’ humiliating attacks.

Welfare has been slashed to the absolute bone—and now Iain Duncan Smith has said he would cut £12 billion more.

In our Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) campaign we’ve met people who are angry at the Tories, but are also disappointed with Ed Miliband and the Labour Party.

That’s why we’ve got to have strong fighting campaigns both in the streets and the workplaces.

We have to challenge the idea that we need to pay off their deficit—there’s no more money down here. And we need to take on racist attempts to divide us.

The Bullingdon Boys have got away with it for too long—it’s time now to take it back from the rich.
