Yet all three main political parties and the Green Party where it is in office support cuts, privatisation and the outsourcing of public services.
When the Labour Party was in office it privatised public services and dragged us into illegal wars demoralising millions of voters.
This allowed the Tories and the Lib Dems to lash up a coalition with a right wing agenda that did not appear in their manifestos.
No-one voted for austerity. No-one voted for NHS privatisation. No-one voted for tax breaks for millionaires and benefit cuts for the disabled. Yet all the main parties are going along with this big business agenda.
Southampton Tory leader Royston Smith (pictured) is the product of Labour's craven support for these policies as working people become increasingly disillusioned with voting altogether.
If Labour wants the votes of working people it better start with an agenda that reflects their interests and not those of the City or the European Union.
Unless the Labour Party wakes up to these simple facts then it will only benefit the far right.
A vote for Tusc offers a real alternative to the corporate status quo offered by the main parties.
