Election 2015 smaller parties: Class War Party

Adam Clifford, one of seven election candidates for the Class War Party, said it "represents the working class".

It wants to double all benefits and the state pension, and it would abolish the monarchy and public schools.

Asked by fellow Daily Politics guest Stanley Johnson as to why Mr Clifford was dressed up as a woman, he replied it was "because this is a part of gender politics".

And he told presenter Andrew Neil: "I don't see how you can have a revolution without violence before you reach some sort of hippie Utopia, eventually"

This is one of a series of interviews with 22 smaller parties contesting seats at the 2015 general election.
