Lynne Jones MP endorses Salma Yaqoob for MP
‘Retiring Labour MP Lynne Jones has dropped a bombshell on her party by backing a candidate from a rival party to replace her in the House of Commons.
Dr Jones is refusing to vote for Roger Godsiff, the Labour candidate in the Birmingham constituency where she lives.
Instead, she is supporting Salma Yaqoob, high-profile candidate for the Respect Party and a Sparkbrook councillor.
Her announcement is a blow to Labour’s hopes of holding on to the Hall Green constituency, where it was already facing a strong challenge from Respect…’ Continue reading at the Birmingham Post here.

Salma Yaqoob is standing for MP in Birmingham Hall Green
This May you have the chance to elect a new MP. Salma Yaqoob is a brave and committed campaigner. She will speak up for you.
– Fed up with politicians lining their own pockets?
– Angry at bankers keeping their bonuses?
– Let down by the lies that took us to war in Iraq and Afghanistan?
She can do it!
In the 2005 General Election, Salma almost won with 10,498 votes.
Lib Dems trailed in THIRD and Conservatives FOURTH.
Only Salma can beat Labour in Birmingham Hall Green!
Labour in trouble – Labour was shocked to have its majority slashed from 16,246 to 3,289 in 2005. Since then they have become even more unpopular.
Lib Dems struggling – Jerry Evans’ vote reduced by half in his own Springfield ward in 2008.
In 2009 they only polled 500 votes in the Sparkbrook by-election. Lib Dems are losing support and cannot win.

Birmingham City Council cuts alone will slash services and axe up to 7,000 jobs.
Labour, Tories and Lib Dems say there is ‘no alternative’ to cuts. They only disagree on when to wield the knife.
These are the same people who said there was ‘no alternative’ to war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
There is an alternative.
The Robin Hood Tax is one. It calls for a tiny tax on bankers which would have the power to raise hundreds of billions every year.
It could give a vital boost to the NHS, our schools and the fight against child poverty in the UK – as well as tackling poverty and climate change around the world.’
Respect and Salma Yaqoob are supporters of The Robin Hood Tax. We urge you to become a supporter too.
