United Socialist Party (UK)
The party was formed in Liverpool by a number of former Liverpool Dockers who had been active in the strike of 1995-1997. Other leftist groups such as the Revolutionary Democratic Group, WIRFI and International Socialist League became involved and the party experienced ideological and organisational conflicts - as the Socialist Labour Party had before it - between those seeking a more left wing version of the Labour Party and those aiming to found a multi-tendency revolutionary party.
TUSP stood in local elections between 2006 and 2008, retaining no deposits. Their website contains no new content since 2009 and the organisation appears to be moribund. To some extent its role was taken by the similarly-named TUSC (Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition) which emerged from the Campaign for a New Workers' Party with which TUSP had been involved.
