President Sean Hoyle

Following a resolution that was passed unanimously at January's LTRC, this region would like to place on record its support and solidarity with Sean with regard to his understanding and interpretation of Rule 1. 4. (b) To work for the supersession of the capitalist system by a socialistic order of society.

The recent media reports and character assassination by them of Sean are disgraceful and bear no resemblance to anything approaching fair and reasonable reporting.

The London Transport Regional Council share the President's view on removing the austerity led Tories out of Parliament and replacing them with a fairer Socialist alternative.

The President will continue to have the full backing of this Regional Council.

London Transport Regional Council January 2017.
