It would appear the whole article is about him publicly claiming to regret the chaos it is about to unleash, if Boris had said the same the papers would have been all over him like a rash!

Full article -

Sir Keir Starmer has been accused of hypocrisy after leaked documents reveal he privately supported strike action by rail workers – while publicly claiming to regret the chaos it is about to unleash.

The Mail on Sunday has obtained minutes from a meeting of Labour’s ruling body which record Sir Keir saying he opposed Government moves to restrict industrial action by the Aslef train drivers’ union.

But earlier this month, the Opposition leader insisted: ‘I don’t want to see strikes, nobody wants the strikes.’


The rail network will be paralysed for three days this week over a demand by workers for double-digit pay increases, while school summer holidays have been thrown into doubt after another Labour-affiliated union, the Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA), raised the prospect of more strikes next month.

Sir Keir’s supportive comments came at a meeting of Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) last month, just eight days after Aslef members voted to retain their links to the party.

Last night, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told The Mail on Sunday: ‘Keir Starmer’s claims to be on the side of the public have been exposed as a total sham.

While his union paymasters are driving their members towards a national strike under false pretences, he is saying one thing in public and another in private.

‘Far from not wanting the strikes to happen, behind closed doors he is giving them the green light, opposing efforts to prevent them and pocketing rail union cash.’
I don't think anyone wants to see strike action which causes suffering to all involved but that don't mean I won't support striking as it's the only weapon a working man has. I don't think for one minute the Daily Mail reported this in the interest of working people but to once again assassinate the opposition's stance.The media manipulation of what people say is again at work Fortunately it's only read by Tories anyway and they have already made their minds up which way to vote.

Do you regularly read it from front page to back or is it a case of not being able to resist a ride on the bandwagon?

Er …. to the first extract, they signed a waiver BEFORE they accepted the job.

To the second extract, in view of the massive amount of hypocrisy that surrounds the subject, why does giving it as an example mean that I am somehow lowering the tone of the discussion?

Please explain.
:hat:
I can assure you I DID NOT sign any "waiver" when I joined the Prison Service in 1988...................the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act didn't become law until 1994.

Please read the Post!
I said “the front pages” - which is where the Daily Wail sets the tone for whatever lies they wish to promote!
Well i wouldn't know i tend to steer clear of all "news" papers most have an axe to grind with one party or another i don't waste my time reading any of them.

They know no shame! Todays headline on BBC TV News:

Strike is £1bn Lockdown for Britain

Obviously, I didn’t read the article but I’ll lay money that the RMT and the strikers get the blame!

Please check out:



Enjoy!

Matt in today’s Telegraph nails the current problems perfectly!

A railway Porter (one of the people who haven’t had a pay rise) is explaining to a punter …

“When HS2 is finished,
not getting to Birmingham
will take only 52 minutes!”

So the UK can afford to go ahead with HS2 but can’t afford to pay the people who will make it work?

Three days of no trains = three extra brew days. I raise my glass to the lads in sympathy and support.

Why is this such a crisis more people now work from home. We went through the covid crisis with hardly anyone using the trains for months now we have a three day outage it’s ballocks. This strike is government generated to discredit Labour but like Heath in the early 70’s it could backfire and this governments record of getting things right is appalling.
