SCAB! SCAB! SCAB! Working Class Betrayed

The one thing you don’t do is cross a picket line Arthur Scargill used to remind us. Only scabs cross picket lines. Yesterday the brothers of the T&G organised a picket of parliament in support of Westminster cleaners who are looking for a pay rise from £5.20 an hour. Remember MPs receive a £20 lunch hour allowance – yes MPs voted for the the taxpayers to literally pay them to get their snouts in the trough.

So despite the T&G officially picketing parliament yesterday, left-wing MPs somehow managed to vote down Blair’s 90-day law. Left-wing MPs voting included Diane Abbott, Harry Cohen, Jeremy Corbyn, Glenda Jackson, Chris Mullin, Clare Short and Dennis Skinner. Scabs Out!

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
