Labour is 'worst government ever', says Mark Serwotka
The Labour government has been branded the "worst in the history of this country” by the head of one of Britain’s biggest trade unions.

Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union, said the government’s poor treatment of public sector workers meant it was a worse employer than the Conservatives under Margaret Thatcher or John Major.

In a bitter attack, he called for unions to take “united industrial action” as a last resort to defend jobs, pensions and services.

In scenes reminiscent of union rallies of the 60s and 70s, teachers chanted “the workers, united, will never be defeated” as they gave Mr Serwotka a standing ovation

The Beeb are owned by the government. What do you expect? Truthful reporting?

of course not I was being sarcastic. I sent a message to liar politicians to see if he could dig it up. I watched 'balls-up' at the conference earlier and so would love to see this speech

Nothing on the BBC website either about Johnson Beharry's comment, of how he refused to shake old one eyes hand, and was thinking of "Knocking him out", because of his blatant disrespect to the British armed forces.

I wonder what would have happened if Beharry had uttered these words about Cameron though? Never ending, round the clock coverage till the point of nausea, one would suspect.

The BBC are meant to be a publicly funded institution, that report the news from a neutral point of view. Instead of which, they're a National disgrace to the profession that they purport to represent.
