Just 24 hours to go to the march for a future that works – join us on #oct20

There are a range of stories in the press today from Cameron’s crumbling plans for cheaper fuel, Mitchell mired in plebgate, doctors getting health checks, more MPs’ expenses, Google’s shares sliding, banks (rightly) being blamed for the recession and even Cadbury reducing the size of chocolate bars but not the price. If this makes you angry and wanting change then it’s almost here, because tomorrow people from across the country will march in Belfast, Glasgow and London to demand a future that works. The usual digest links to the top stories across the papers are below, but today’s message is a simple and singular one, march with us, and tell your family, your friends and everyone you know to join us too, it’s time to take the challenge to the Con-Dem coalition, it’s time to argue for the alternative, it’s time to make a stand and march for a future that works…
