Every Londoner is going to pay a price after the May 1 elections. New Labour betraying its roots has a lot to answer for. People's disillusionment helped lead to the election of Mad Boris as mayor and a BNP member to the London assembly. We are all going to suffer.
Our election campaign told a different story. People fighting back in the tenants movement, in the trades unions and in the community aren't looking for scapegoats. They are looking for someone to put forward the politics of hope, which none of the main stream parties is doing.
People were enthusiastic about the Left List campaign because they want policies that say society can be different, and strategies that argue that ordinary people can stand together and fight for change.
Although our 2,000 votes in this area were small as percentages, we know many of the people who were voting for an alternative and they represent those campaigning for change in Camden. We are proud to have stood together, because we believe our different communities have to fight together for a future for all of us.

There is life after Boris and we won't stop fighting now the election is over. That means continuing the campaigns to defend our services and taking on whatever Boris may throw at us, as well as making sure the BNP are not allowed to promote their facist views.
It also means continuing with the project of building a new political home for the huge numbers of people who have been disenfranchised by New Labour and who do not want to see a move to the right.
