We're here because a Labour government backed by the Trade Unions borrowed money so profligately and at such an alarming rate that the prospect of half of all taxes raised being used just to pay the interest loomed. We're here because Labour backed by the Trade Unions tried to bribe the electorate for votes by condemning their grandchildren to poverty, leaving future generations to beggar themselves paying off the debts. We're here because Labour backed by the Trade Unions crippled the nation's economy by substituting a Soviet-style command economy for the free market, by deluding themselves as Gordon Brown did that the public sector was the 'real' economy.
And the Comrades are proposing doing even more damage?
Here's how Trade Union Members can help themselves; your union adds anything from £5 to £10 a month to your subs in the form of a 'political levy'. You can opt out of this. HERE is Unison's Opt Out Form - but all the unions will have them. Opt out today. Better still, resign your union membership altogether and spend the saved subscription on a legal insurance policy - these days, a smart city lawyer on a CFA is ten times more useful in protecting employee's rights than a Comrade branch secretary.
