Broth­ers are on the rude to ruin

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE TUC con­fer­ence is not known for its po­lite­ness — in fact, the brother barons of the union move­ment are plain rude.

Lit­tle won­der. These di­nosaurs with their fat jowls and slob­bery trough­ing habits have barely emerged from the swamp.

While this news­pa­per holds no brief for the Labour Party’s chief nin­com­poop, Ed Miliband, he was treated dis­cour­te­ously at the TUC yes­ter­day.

For no other rea­son than speak­ing the truth.

The pub­lic sec­tor union bosses are relics, re­fus­ing to move with the times, ig­nor­ing re­al­ity and con­demn­ing count­less thou­sands to un­em­ploy­ment.

Yet all the while they en­joy the fruits of their fat ex­pense ac­counts, boss-sized salaries and armies of toad­ies.

The vot­ing pub­lic are rightly an­gry that pub­lic sec­tor work­ers re­ceive pen­sion ben­e­fits of which most can only dream.

The peo­ple of Bri­tain are fed up of be­ing taxed to the hilt so that pub­lic sec­tor pen­push­ers can re­tire at 60 on a ca­st­iron, gold-plated pen­sion for which they have paid so lit­tle, and we have con­trib­uted so much.

So there is no sup­port for the self­ind­ul­gent strike cam­paign upon which the pub­lic sec­tor unions have em­barked.

And the Labour Party can­not sup­port such a crazed course of ac­tion.

The union bully­boys showed they have one unique tal­ent yes­ter­day.

They can heckle with their heads stuffed deep in the sand.
