Breaking news: Bristol Respect Party collapses

News coming in that the Bristol Respect Party is in a state of advanced collapse after a Socialist Workers Party coup at a branch meeting on Wednesday.

Jerry Hicks, the controversial former Amicus convenor at Rolls Royce, came second in the Lockleaze Ward in 2006 beating Labour into third place and Paulette North came third in Easton this year against a very well-funded Labour campaign and the sitting Lib Dem councillor John Kiely, a very effective campaigner.

Full report from Liam Mac Uaid of Socialist Unity.
