All out to unseat Bob Blackman!

Harrow East's Tory MP Bob Blackman is a right-wing extremist. He's opposed equal marriage, called for the reintroduction of the anti-gay Section 28, has retweeted anti-Muslim hatred and a post by far right leader Tommy Robinson, as well as backing the bedroom tax, austerity, cuts to taxes on the rich, trebling tuition fees, privatisation of the NHS, and other assaults on the working class. rs21 will be organising a canvassing session, giving us an opportunity to put our ear to the ground in this general election campaign, and put popular grass-roots pressure on a far-right candidate. Be there on time. All welcome!
