This country seems to have lost all its common sense and short-term memory. It’s as if the tabloid press has everyone in thrall. It’s not a pleasant place.
The Tories are making hay out of union bashing now and some people are swayed by this! Unbelievable.
The current wave of strikes are due to twelve years of deliberate government pay cuts, service cuts and imposed austerity.
They are now refusing to talk to the unions because their union bashing is making them more popular. Isn’t that obvious?
Without the unions we’d be living in extreme poverty, six-day weeks, no holidays, no maternity leave, no health and safety, no rights. Just look at those jobs which are not unionised.
Meanwhile, the rich get richer and richer. The tax dodging continues. The exploitation and corruption gets worse.
