…who won’t contest the next general election.
When the next general election arrives in 2016 I will be 67, and I am very anxious that a new generation of Socialist Party public representatives are continuing, if you like, the work that the party and I have done for quite a lengthy period.
Questions would have arrived in the context of a byelection that if we won a seat, would Ruth Coppinger and me be standing in the next election.
Would it be possible for the Socialist Party to take two seats [in 2016]? I feel it is better to clarify the position now.
