Socialist Unity site over June
Jim Jepps, editor
On June the 10th the European, GLA and local elections
take place. This is clearly a very important time for the left. Many of
us are rushing around doing anti-fascist work and trying our damnedest
to build the left vote because we recognise the results of these
elections will profoundly effect the shape of things to come.
Before June the 10th we will be carrying our usual
mixture of reports, news and discussion and we hope that people of
different persuasions and coming from many different traditions will
feel free to contribute to that debate.
Directly after June the 10th we will be running a
comprehensive election service up dated as soon as humanly possible
after the results are announced. We will cover many of the European
election results and look more deeply into the possible implications of
the results here in the UK.
On Friday 11th there will be an initial assessment and
breakdown of where you can find the results on the BBC, etc.
On Sunday 13th there will be a preliminary series of
articles on the local election results, and the GLA campaign.
On Monday 14th there will appear our full
coverage of the results and assessment of the elections in the evening.
(The European votes will not be counted until the Sunday)
Over the course of the week we hope to print further
assessments of late results and we'd like to invite you to submit your
responses to these elections and what you think it may mean for the
This can be long or short as we will be printing an
'in brief' selection as well for those who like their comments short and
to the point.
Hopefully by the following weekend we will have
prepared a downloadable election analysis for distribution at the
extremely important post election meetings that are being organised in
various places around the country.
If you'd like to write in with suggestions, contributions, or reports
please feel free to e-mail me at
firstname.lastname@example.org you may like to check out the
submission guidelines first of course.
