If a million public sector workers went on strike for a higher minimum wage for everyone, ditto.
But when a million pampered public sector workers (who have done well out of this government - though admittedly not as well as the civil service, police etc) strike to maintain a privilege (retire at 60) that private sector workers don't have, then I am very dismayed. No matter how many full page national newspaper adverts they can afford, they are not going to persuade me that this is anything but a defence of privilege.
Why are the unions who do well out of a Labour government always a Labour government's worst enemy? How would they cope with a Tory government slapping them down?
