Today 750, 000 public sector workers were on strike against the savage cuts proposed by this completely out of touch coalition government, intent on their implementation of massively unpopular and entirely unnecessary cuts to public sector pensions. With their claims that parents are against strikes and their ideological agenda masquerading as economic necessity, the government and their lackeys show exactly how out of touch they are with public feeling and if today is anything to go by, there is a whole load of hurt in store for them in the future.
As if that wasn’t enough, Ed Milliband’s condemnation of the strikers demonstrates that all three political parties are out of touch with ordinary working people and working class people are left without any representation in mainstream politics. A sad day for democracy.
