Labour ‘will fight off neoliberal agenda’

JOHN McDONNELL vowed Labour will “end neoliberalism” as he addressed a 3,000-strong May Day rally in Glasgow yesterday.

The shadow chancellor also pledged to repeal the Trade Union Bill and called for “class unity” across the nations of Britain in the face of the “rotten Tory government.” Thunderous applause greeted Mr McDonnell when he brought greetings from the “socialist leader of the Labour Party.”

And he said:“Austerity has not been a political necessity but a political choice and we now have a historic opportunity to end it, reverse the cuts and ensure our social services are fully paid for by ensuring social justice in taxation.”

The march included RMT workers fighting against privatisation of the CalMac ferry service, the Glasgow school caretakers demanding equal pay and young workers in the fast food campaign.
