Communist Manifesto

Communist candidate Mollie Stevenson told the Newcastle East hustings on Thursday 16 April that “The capitalist system which caused the current crisis should pay for it, not working people.”

The Communist Party is to complain to the Electoral Commission that advertising giant JC Decaux has failed to erect its election posters despite money changing hands.

"Stagecoach and its chairman Sir Brian Souter clearly don’t believe in freedom of speech," said Communist candidate Mollie Stevenson today.

COMMUNIST CANDIDATE ATTACKS STAGECOACH ‘CENSORSHIP’

“Stagecoach and its chairman Sir Brian Souter clearly don’t believe in freedom of speech,” said Communist candidate Mollie Stevenson today.

Ms Stevenson, standing in the Newcastle upon Tyne East constituency, was reacting angrily to the news that her election poster at the Stagecoach bus depot on Shields Road was due to be covered over today due to ‘a complaint from the landlord’.  The poster was put up last Friday and was due to run till polling day.
