The People Before Profit party

While they didn't take part in the virtual hustings, the socialist People Before Profit party attracts sizeable support in Brockley and Telegraph Hill, maintaining a high-visibility presence with posters in a number of shop windows along Brockley Road, which is either ironic or a withering commentary on the state of Brockley business.

While at the Mayoral and Parliamentary level they stand no realistic chance of election, they are hopeful of securing some Councillor representation. When we spoke to Brockley Ward candidate Patrick McGinley about his (seperate) campaign on behalf of local Council leaseholders (about which more soon) he was hard at work printing leaflets, with disaffected Labour voters a key target. His platform is based on restoring transparency to local government, providing more facilities for local young people and improving the accountability of the Council's housing budget.

So how big a factor do you believe the People Before Profit will be in this election?
