The Scottish Socialist Party has announced its bid to regain a presence in Holyrood next year through the regional list system.
Party spokesman Colin Fox said that the decision to contest next year's Scottish parliament elections "underscores the SSP determination to put our socialist policies before voters."
Six SSP MSPs were elected in 2003 but the party lost all its seats at the last Scottish Parliament elections.
The regional list uses a form of proportional representation to "top-up" the number of MSPs elected through the traditional first-past-the-post constituency system.
"As well as adamantly opposing job and service cuts, we will also be campaigning for free public transport, a massive boost to council house building and the scrapping of the hated council tax and its replacement by an income-based Scottish service tax," said Mr Fox.
"There has never been a more urgent need for socialists in the Holyrood Parliament as the four big business parties conspire to slash jobs and services."
Lord Feldman says that he didn't call grassroots Tories "mad swivel-eyed loons" while his accusers stand by their stories that he did.
