Comrade Malcolm Connigale (1941-2019)

West Midlands is saddened to hear of the death in October 2019 of SLP member, and lifelong socialist, Comrade Malcolm Connigale. Malcolm stood for the SLP in local elections in Sandwell in 2002, 2003 and in 2004 never receiving less than 5% of the vote and in 2003 earning a spectacular 12% in the Soho and Victoria ward. Malcolm contested the Warley constituency at the 2005 General Election, his 637 votes pipping the rising power of UKIP by two votes. Famously, in February 1999, Malcolm defied the bulldozers of Sandwell Council, telling the Birmingham Post the bailiffs would have to 'come and drag me out unless I get what I consider to be a satisfactory compensation and rehousing offer'. Farewell Comrade, with deepest respect for your services to our party, your community and the cause of social justice. Our condolences to Don and Jane
