DECREASE pubs and restaurants depend on Christmas revenue to survive.
But the needless cruelty of the festive rail strikes cost the hospitality industry an estimated £1.5billion last week.
In London alone, damage totaled a staggering £800million.
These selfish strikes not only spoil Christmas for everyone.
They are also threatening thousands of vital jobs in an industry already on its knees.
PM Rishi Sunak today describes the railway workers as “foot soldiers in a class struggle”.
Today we unveil evidence that hard left core is pulling the strings in Mick Lynch’s RMT union.
Six members of the union’s ruling national executive committee have close ties to extremists agitating for a general strike.
There can be no doubt about the self-interested political aims of these militants.
They want nothing less than to shut down the country and overthrow the government.
It is now up to the moderate railroad workers to stand their ground against Mr. Lynch.
They have to accept that they have been given a good deal and that, unlike the NHS, the rail business is better paid and generally overstaffed.
It’s time they put a stop to the ideologically driven anarchy of their union bosses.
Otherwise they will ruin their public support, their own industry and the British economy.
Supervise casual French
IF you have any doubts about how lax French police are in the migrant crisis, take a look at the words of the evil people smuggler we are interviewing today.
He claims police are encouraging gangs to bring migrants into England.
Not a single one of the 600 smugglers in the camps was arrested.
Over the last two years we have given the French £117m to help in that fight.
We’ll never get value for money until we have British observers on the ground.
Cheers it’s Merry Xmas
There is a lot of doom and gloom at the moment.
But look at the smiling faces of the sick children you helped with our brilliant Christmas card campaign.
We can’t thank you enough.
There won’t be any sun on Sunday next week, but we’ll be back in the new year with a bang.
Merry Christmas to all our readers.
