Nurses deal reached in Scotland, Tory fannies going "but, but, but.. socialism" in England. Tories are fecked but determined to drag everyone else into the mire they created!

The Public Sector unions are out to break this government.Let them keep striking until their members get fed up with losing money and public support.

Why not Rishi and his mob start talking to the Unions, like Wee Jimmy Krankie did and come to an agreement?

I can't speak for other industries' re-strike action SWB....bar the nurses are underpaid I will agree on

but the rail lot need to embrace technology to move forward and sadly that will come with job losses, but thats life to some extent in plenty of other workplaces........

i still don't like strikes it cripples other people's lives, businesses etc.etc....

The "rail lot" have embraced a lot of technology, but technology cannot replace Conductors on trains. the problem with Rail that the Major Gov't forgot when they had a fire sale in the 90's when Blair was on his way, was that not even Maggie wanted to Privatise it, for reasons we're now seeing!

The rail industry still gets billions in subsidies from the taxpayer. A large majority of whom never use the railways. Mick the Grinch is losing the argument when he starts accusing the BBC of right wing bias.

The rail workers must have lost a good couple of weeks pay now, and for what?

No nearer a better deal than when they started.

The majority of the UK rail network is owned by foreign companies/governments. as is our utility services. Our government subsidies are being used to subsidy foreign rail and utilities

Its just the Sun and the Mail doing the governments bidding and trying to demonise the working class. Public sector pay has gone gone up 2.6% in the last 5 years, while private sector has gone up 7%.  This when inflation is 10%. Seems like the public sector are getting stiffed?

The Public Sector is far too big. It needs radical surgery. When it becomes efficient,productive and fit for purpose then those that remain will need to be rewarded. Far too much deadwood in the PS with their job for life entitlement. Than goes particularly for our " sainted" NHS.
