Susan Archibald, Dunfermline, Scottish Socialist Party

Link / contact details for potential supporters:


i. what do you think is the most important issue in this election?:

Make poverty history

ii. why did you make the decision to stand in this constituency and for this party (as an independent)?:

I made the decision to stand as candidate in Dunfermline because I believe In fighting for ordinary people like myself. Fighting for local issues in our communities.


iii. what kind of vote are you expecting on May 5th?:

If I could get 50 new members for the Party I would be quite happy.

iv. aside from the vote what are you hoping to get out of this campaign?:

A sense of achievement knowing that I have done my best to fight for local issues in Dunfermline West.


v. in your view what is the greatest threat to our civil liberties at the moment? :

Tony Blair.

vi. Blair has taken us to war three times since coming to power (not including the occasional ad hoc bombing raid) in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. Can war ever be justified? :

There is always a hidden agenda behind war. The true facts are never disclosed. They bring up the concept of terrorism when it does not exist, for their ulterior motive to create fear, panic, and most importantly, WEALTH for the government.

vii. There is very little left to privatise in this country, if you had your way what would be brought into public hands? : 

Everything, the public should draw funding to buy one thing at a time, which would create jobs for local people. A revenue for future projects to create wealth in local communities, towns & cities which would then bring better resources & a sense of wealth & community spirit to all. With their first project that has been purchased they can raise enough money to start up the next. Taking small steps in each community can create wealth & understanding & equality between local people, to raise awareness of local issues and take the decisions out of the government's hands. 

Some environmental campaigners have started talking about nuclear power as a way to bring down CO2 emissions - what do you think of this? :

This topic of conversation will always go round in a circle & never be constructively addressed. We need to redress the situation, NOW. 


 ix. Asylum and immigration will be central issues in this election. What action on this issue would you like to see the next government push through? :

Inclusion & equal opportunities for all.

What question do you wish was on this list but doesn't appear? :

Does Labour actually know what working class means?
