Within two days of George announcing the Labour Party had joined his ‘Rainbow Cabinet’ – that cheerily-named cross-party gang of rubber-stampers run for the benefit of Bristol’s business elite – the Mayor happily announced a further £70M OF CUTS at Bristol City Council.
“I expect this to include a full review of council staff terms and conditions,” blustered the wealthy, OUT-OF-TOUCH TWIT launching his latest attack on ordinary Bristolians who don’t happen to be part of his privileged millionaire milieu.
It’ll be interesting to see, then, how the supposed party of the workers responds to this announcement. Will they be signing up for George’s Tobacco Factory Bar model of low-status, low-wage and no-rights employment? Or will they be standing up for ordinary workers at the council and walking away from GEORGE’S VICTORIAN PLANS to do away with holidays, maternity rights, sick pay, pensions, redundancy, Health and Safety protection and any other benefit George is too tight to offer to his poor, downtrodden bar workers?
Don’t hold your breath.
