Gary Clark, a candidate for the Communication Workers' Union's (CWU) national executive and Socialist Party Scotland members, received 3,382 votes. Gary, who is branch secretary of Scotland No 2 branch says:

"I have never been prouder in my life with the election campaign. I have not been elected to the executive but put forward a clear socialist programme which has got an echo from thousands of CWU postal members all over the country. We put forward a strategy to advance the idea of a fighting programme and improve the conditions of postal workers. So I'm asking you all, if you agreed with what I have been putting forward, now is the time to get more involved in the CWU and support CWU Forward, the new left group in the union. And if you believe in my socialist message then take the next step and join me in the Socialist Party. Forward to socialism and solidarity to you all."

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
