LABOR’s failure to openly condemn the crippling rail strikes is a national disgrace.
But their shameful reluctance to get off the fence is no surprise given how deep they are in a bind with their union paymasters.
The party has not only gratefully pocketed around £1million over the past five years from the wreckers that will bring the country to a standstill.
But their own leadership is terribly compromised by union funds.
As we reveal today, the hypocritical Sir Keir Starmer has declared a £2,000 donation from Unite which will close the Tube.
His deputy Angela Rayner and shadow plane secretary Lisa Nandy have been staying in hotels courtesy of union bosses.
No wonder Ms Nandy says she’s on the side of the railroad workers too.
With Sir Keir sitting on his hands, some of his Corbynite MPs will enjoy a return to seventies-style chaos.
They long for the dark days of industrial unrest, when Marxist union barons blackmailed the country.
Don’t forget that this week-long act of willful union busting will wreak havoc for millions of ordinary Britons.
Think of the patients trying to get essential treatment in hospitals, young people trying to sit important exams, or hard-working families trying to earn a living amid a cost-of-living crisis.
The unions cannot take care of them. But Labor doesn’t seem to be either.
Save 10p more fuel
SPIRALING Fuel prices should be high on the government agenda.
Economics Minister Kwasi Kwarteng’s investigation into why the cuts were not passed on to motorists is all well and good.
His investigation has to report to the Competition and Markets Authority by early next month.
But until then, the greediest garages could charge £2.50 a liter.
What we need is to act NOW.
Due to the increased VAT, the Ministry of Finance collects more than before the reduction in mineral oil tax.
The Prime Minister should step in and cut a further 10p from the fuel levy with immediate effect.
troops on burgers all
THE revelation that a serving British soldier has to work at McDonald’s to supplement his income is shocking.
Drastic cuts in our armed forces have been exposed by the war in Ukraine.
But we need our troops well trained and fairly paid to face an uncertain world.
This soldier should be training to fire a gun, not flip a Big Mac.
