Politicians, speaking at the protest to stop the closure of two care homes in Liverpool, made false promises to silence families and lessen anger on 21 September.
Labour MP Ian Byrne claimed that Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson had, moments before the protest, told him to ask staff and residents not to leave the care home. This is an utter shambles. Residents are already being offered places in other care homes.
Although the organiser said that the protest was not political, protesters accepted Socialist Party leaflets on the issue. Somebody from the crowd also asked when this could become political!
The organiser did say staff need to be employed by the local council and "we are here to stay". Mayor Anderson said the cost of running the homes is too much for the cash-strapped council.
Like Militant - now the Socialist Party - did when we led Liverpool council, the current Labour council should refuse to implement cuts. If they don't, then we will stand candidates against them, who will defy the cuts.
