I believe it's crucial to offer people an electoral alternative to austerity. There 100% has to be an anti-austerity party standing candidates in as many places as possible.
I'm facing a lot of the issues that TUSC is campaigning on. I'm a young woman, a student, in mountains of immediate debt and struggling with rent.
You can't underestimate the difference it makes for young people seeing someone in the elections who is genuinely one of them.
I'm not a career politician - I hope that I'll be a breath of fresh air in the election next to all the stuffed shirts parachuted in for their careers!
The NHS will be crucial in this election. A lot of people are genuinely frightened about its future in the hands of the capitalist parties.
I think that the housing crisis will be a major point this year as well. Rents are almost half of monthly income now, and council house building has all but ground to a halt.
I've done a lot of work on housing in the York area, presiding over a new not-for-profit letting project at the University, so I'll be making housing a main focus.
It wouldn't be by cutting benefits and services, for a start! The money is available, it's just that the wrong people have got hold of it. Resources could be easily managed to meet the needs of the 99%.
Money should be invested in public services instead of lining the pockets of private shareholders. Public services should be run in the interest of the people.
The commanding heights of the economy must be nationalised for the good of the country. Nationalised industries run far better than private ones: East Coast rail for instance.
It was the cheapest and most efficient sector of the railways before it was bought out by Virgin. All that privatisation does is encourage a race to the bottom for workers' wages and conditions.
The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) is an electoral alliance involving the RMT transport union, the Socialist Party, other socialist groups and leading members of other trade unions. This May TUSC is standing 135 candidates in the general election and 619 in the local elections.
