“British politics has hit an all time low in the eyes of the public. And for good reason. Our politicians betrayed us by uncritically following America into illegal wars, causing untold pain and suffering to families here and abroad. They sat idly by as the banks recklessly gambled billions on the financial markets, creating the conditions for the current recession. Too many have become tainted and discredited by sleaze and expenses abuse.
We need politicians who put the common good before themselves and their party. Derek Wall is such a person. He has a passionate commitment to social justice, both here and abroad. He has a long record of campaigning for a cleaner, healthier and balanced environment.
I am proud to support him and I urge you to do likewise.It’s no good just complaining about our current crop of MP’s. It’s time to change them!Please give Derek Wall your full support and help elect an MP you could feel proud of.” – Salma Yaqoob, Respect Party leader and Birmingham Councillor.
