Mystery surrounding Rayner’s silence on rail strikes
THE last thing post-pandemic recession-hit Britain needs is a rail strike.
But while the prime minister and chancellor grapple with soaring prices and 1970s-style energy bills, militant unions are poised to seize their opportunity.
Sensing weakness, these brutalist hard left see their chance to inflict maximum pain on the Tories in a series of actions taken by Network Rail and 15 train operators.
That it could also shut down the food and medical supplies to millions of beleaguered families is worth it to the ruthless RMT leadership.
Meanwhile there is a deafening silence from Labour.
Deputy leader Angela Rayner has continued incessantly with her attacks on Boris Johnson and has made 65 public comments on Partygate.
She has posted her criticism of the Channel 4 privatization and even told her 500,000 Twitter followers about her appearance on Loose Women.
But in the biggest union strike since the general strike of 1926? Nothing.
We have a question for the Labor Vice-Chairman.
What is it about the £5,700 donations you received from the RMT that caused you to lose interest in the rail strike?
Make Britain work
SCENES of awful half-time airport queues could easily be dismissed as a minor local problem for the low-cost airlines.
In fact, it is symptomatic of a broader cultural and economic problem.
The bosses of easyJet and TUI – like so many companies across the country – have found that they cannot hire staff.
Covid-19 lockdowns have done irreparable damage to the economy while giving a generation of workers a glimpse of what they believe to be the perfect “work-life balance”. It’s a mirage.
Government must encourage a return to the right work culture, starting with the civil service.
For our common good, we must remember as a nation to roll up our sleeves and get the job done.
Too much of the UK just doesn’t work right now.
Star Helen’s Legacy
THE death of Peaky Blinders star Helen McCrory touched the nation.
It robbed husband Damian Lewis and their two teenage children of a wife and mother. She was one of our best actresses.
But after that tragedy, Damian has worked tirelessly for good causes to solidify his wife’s legacy.
He really deserves his CBE.
Damian – you played a blind man.
