Shoulder to shoulder
I stand with low-paid workers
who make the rich rich.
- I didn’t think my contempt for 12 years of Conservative Government could grow any larger, but their refusal to negotiate on salaries during a cost-of-living crisis and >10% inflation, is beyond belief. I have worked hard in the public sector my entire working life and over the last 10 years have been hit with a real-terms pay cut of 25%, which is frankly disgusting. I should be at the peak of my earning power but have been utterly neutered by this anti-public sector regime.
- They have run down our public services deliberately, reducing them to the bare minimum service. Their solution… reform, which is code for privatisation.
- Successive Tory Governments have asset-stripped the country, privatising transport, energy and utilities to favour wealth creation at the expense of public service. There is nothing left to sell, except the health service and education. I hate what this country has become. Greedy, avaricious, selfish, uncompassionate, xenophobic. Thank you, Margaret Thatcher, your legacy is alive and well in the UK.
