West Belfast based political activists we find it
disheartening that no left candidate is standing in
our constituency. Those that claim to be progressive
demonstrated the paucity of this claim through their
decision to legitimise the Bush/Blair war summit earlier
this year in Hillsborough.
is a source of much regret that we do not have someone
of the calibre of Eamonn McCann standing in this constituency.
McCann has demonstrated principled leadership on the
issues that have for long been at the centre of socialists'
the right to vote McCann is a privilege restricted
only to those in the Foyle constituency. Were we registered
to vote in Foyle, McCann would secure our No 1 preference.
After that our votes would be transferred to those
who come closest to the radical socialist vision articulated
by Eamonn McCann.
