Labour stalwart backs Respect candidate for Manchester Central

Respect Party Press Release Friday 3rd August 2012

Former Labour MP for Halifax, Alice Mahon, is backing Kate Hudson, Respect candidate for the Manchester Central by-election on 15th November.

Mrs Mahon said: ‘Excellent news that Kate Hudson , General Secretary of CND and well-known political activist, is to stand in the Manchester Central by-election. I have worked with Kate on many campaigns. Highly intelligent and articulate she is totally committed to a fairer more equal society.

If we are to stop the privatisation of health, and education, the introduction of work for no pay, and a continuation of the lousy neo-con economics that have done so much damage to our country, then we have to start electing people like Kate who have the courage to take the fight for a more equal society to the heart of government. The people of Manchester Central deserve nothing less.’

Kate and the Respect campaign team will be taking their message to Manchester Central tomorrow, meeting at 10.30am at the party rooms at Hilton House, Hilton Street , Manchester M1 1EL . They will commence work in Bradford ward – the most deprived ward in Manchester .

Kate Hudson said: ‘Respect’s anti-cuts and pro-investment message is more vital than ever, as reports show thousands of public sector workers in Greater Manchester are earning less than a living wage. This is a disgrace. Respect will fight to end the poverty and deprivation that blights this great city.’
