That will of course be the same unions who put the Labour party into power and watched and even applauded whilst they messed up so completely.
Could somebody please tell me why public sector employees should be protected over and about anyone in the private sector? Just what is so special about them? Shouldn't they take their fair share of the pain? After all they have been more than willing to take advantage of the benefits over the years.
The NUT ballot showed, according to their General Secretary, just how much anger there is amongst teachers. Yet the figures do not quite show that do they?
“Results from the NUT's ballot show that 92% were in favour of strike action. Turnout was 40% among state school members of the union and 27% among private school members”
“Some 83% of ATL members voted to strike, and overall turnout for the ballot was 35%”
Most of them it seems were not even bothered enough to vote. Could there be just a hint of politicising going on here?
