Class War to march on Purley’s Tory HQ for election launch – press release

Class War to march on Purley’s Tory HQ for election launch

For immediate release

Class War agitators led by its Croydon South candidate Jonathan Bigger plan to descend on the Tories’ constituency office at 12.30 next Saturday (28th March). It was there, in January 2014, that current MP Richard Ottaway rang the police on a group of constituents delivering a petition, among them Jonathan Bigger.

Class War, which grew out of the notorious 80s tabloid of the same name, will then march through Purley. Our message to the people is this: There is a class war raging in the UK. The rich fund the main political parties and that’s who they represent. The rest of us suffer. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Every year since the banking crisis the UK has produced new millionaires and billionaires. At the same time we have seen the poor forced to use food banks to survive and many people evicted from their homes. It doesn’t have to be like this. We can fight back. We can end their chaos.

In Croydon South on May 7th we need to stop the Conservative Chris Philp from getting elected. Philp is a millionaire property developer who has already criticised one housing scheme in Purley for having too much affordable housing. He wants poor people to live elsewhere. He also wants to see workfare where the unemployed are used as slave labour for big business. Labour does not represent the working class in challenging Philp and his policies for the mega rich. Emily Benn works in the City for a Swiss Bank. She is the daughter of a Lord. There is only one working class candidate in this election and that is Jonathan Bigger.

Jonathan said: “I want to bring the rich and powerful down a peg or two. With our policy of a 50% Mansion Tax we will be able to generate revenue that can go back to real people. We can double the dole and the pension. I want to see a 4 hour working day with no loss of earnings – it’s time we started to benefit from the luxury that technology brings by having the extra time that only the rich seem to enjoy. It’s time we stood up for ourselves and each other by giving them a kicking.”

On May 7th we can kick the toffs out of Croydon South.
