ARE LABOUR AND UNITE ON THE SAME SIDE, OR NOT?
Is it just me, or is it a tad odd that this letter, pictured right (click to enlarge), came from the same union as the Prime Minister was talking about, reported in this in this article saying:
“It is the wrong time, it is unjustified, it is deplorable, we shouldn't have a strike,” said Mr Brown. “It's not in the company's interest, it's not in the workers' interest and it's certainly not in the national interest.”
I was just wondering you see, because, to my way of thinking it's a bit thick for them to be supporting a government that calls their actions deplorable...
It's like saying, 'what you are doing is wrong, but could you give us more money so that we can get back in and keep our trotters in the trough, although clearly we don't think you should have any better conditions.... or pay.... or job security.... But if you don't give generously, WE won't have job security, and that REALLY matters..... Thank you.
What a bunch of...... Oh, I can't think of a suitable word, but I'm sure you can.
PS> If you are in Unite, and you want to stop supporting a government who feels very disagreeably towards you (deplorable was his word). here is a downloadable form you can fill in.
