Slugger Interviews with Small Parties May 3, 2011

Posted by Garibaldy in The Left, The North.

Alan in Belfast has been doing some sterling work interviewing representatives of the smaller parties and independents in the run up to Thursday’s Assembly elections (of which more tomorrow I hope). All posts include fairly in-depth video interviews. I don’t think everyone he wrote to replied, but many of the parties dear to the hearts of people who read CLR are included, including The Workers’ Party, Socialist Party, Green Party, éirígí, and IRSP, and there are also interviews with Brian Ervine and his predecessor as leader of the PUP, Dawn Purvis.

The interviews can be seen here.

Splintered Sunrise has been doing a whistlestop tour of the constituencies which may be of interest.
