They cheered and whooped with delight as they denied a better standard of living to the overworked nurses, to the stressed out police officers and brave firefighters. Remember these words: “I would like to thank the brave men and women of our emergency services,” clearly that thanks from Theresa May didn’t extend to providing them with a decent wage, or a properly funded working environment.
If public sector workers wanted to be real useful, because obviously saving lives and keeping society operating isn’t useful enough, they really want to get into a situation where they can keep the Tories in power. As we know, no price is too big when it comes to helping them cling on to power.
What effect will that decision, and the way they delighted in it have on morale in the NHS, or the fire crews who tackled Grenfell? How can any of those Tory ministers turn up at the next tragedy, while falling over themselves to praise the work of our emergency and public services? Repeatedly this government has been strong on words but short on deeds, and we simply cannot take it any more.
Our public services have had a seven year onslaught, the workers in them are at breaking point and while the MPs give themselves a juicy little pay rise to their already generous salaries, we have nurses surviving on food banks.
Shame on you Theresa May, shame on you and shame on the Tories. It’s a national disgrace the way the Conservatives have treated our public sector workers. We as citizens cannot allow this to continue, when the next election comes and who knows that could be this year, we have to vote them out! Enough is enough.
