The Trade Union and Socialist Coalition has announced its candidate for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner in the General Election.

Wally Kennedy, a long standing activist and former Labour councillor, will stand for election in Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner against incumbent Conservative MP Nick Hurd, Labour Party candidate and Queensbury councillor Michael Borio, Liberal Democrat Josh Dixon, UKIP candidate Gerard Barry and Green Party campaigner Karen Pillai.

TUSC was formed in 2010 by the late Bob Crow, general secretary of the RMT, alongside other leading trade unionists and socialists to provide an anti-cuts alternative to all the main parties at elections.
