The Labour party whilst it is controlled by the Unions will never get into power, especially when you have people like Howard Beckett in the running. This man is running to take over from Len McCluskey.
The latest offering from these unelectable union bosses who like a 5 star living is that the United Kingdom needs to scrap our multi billion pound defence budget and spend it on travellers.
There are two problems with that….
The first is that they are called travellers for a reason….they travel.
Secondly and the most important of all….what about the thousands of people who work in the defence history who pay into the Unite Union Coffers? I take it that losing their jobs will not matter.
I will ask again….where on earth do they find these people from?
Labour former defence minister Kevan Jones last night said the comments would come as a surprise to Unite’s members working in the defence industry. He said: ‘Thousands of Unite members play a vital role supporting our country’s defence. I think they will take a dim view of this suggestion by someone whose position is funded by their union subscriptions.’
Lets not forget this is the same man who was outrageously racist and sexist to a female Home Secretary demanding that she be deported, and all because she is an ethnic minority politician and by the way born in Britain…so where was she to go eh Mr Beckett?…..So when he is not being racist and sexist, he is wanting to throw thousands of defence workers out of their jobs.
Yeah…he is a keeper…NOT.
May I suggest that people actually vote in a leader who will not take your hard earned subscriptions to live the life of fancy and dining in first class restaurants, first class travel, hundreds of thousands of pounds in wages and expenses, and managing to get the ever so special interest free loans of nearly half a million pounds, and who doesn’t blow nearly £100 million of your subscriptions on a friend’s firm as the current retiring one has done.
Beckett, who is demanding a wealth tax to pay for the pandemic, has his own property empire. He owns at least three properties, including a flat in Bloomsbury, central London bought for £640,000 without a mortgage six years ago. Absolutely abiding by a true socialist mantra…a property empire. How very socialist. Honestly I would have to ask union members do you think they care about your lot.? He is happy to see thousands thrown out of work, that is you out of work and your family financially bereft and without a property empire to keep you going.
You only matter because you pay for their privileged lifestyle and isn’t it funny how there seems to be no ethnic minorities in the running for the role, not one. Just very white men oh and one woman and ethnic minorities are not represented here, and as time goes on everyone will have to work a lot longer and of course the costs of being a member of Unite will only go up….but then it is to keep the privileged few in even more privilege and I am sure that keeps you warm at night.
What a pity that the only people who can afford to be socialists are those who have lots of money, lots of properties and who plan to live off the hard work of others, after all if you look at the Unite boss being paid in access of £150,000 plus a year, it takes a minimum of 15,030 payments of those earning less than £18,000 or those who are on more than £18,000 a year…well that takes over 10 thousand payments to pay for the leader’s wage alone and that is not including the add ons, so can you imagine how much they all cost including the very very generous expenses they have? It seems running a union is very profitable to some.
Yep, they are definitely looking after wages….their own and the rest well……your job is expendable to them.
