The union said the 1% cap on pay rises had left nursing staff with a 14% real terms pay cut since 2010 and it would launch a ballot on industrial action this year unless it was lifted.

Theresa May claims that the Tory party now stands for the 'values' of the working-class, which the Labour party has abandoned. These include such values as slashing the wages of public sector workers. We don't deny that the Blairites also shared such values.

Instigation of strike action by a group which has never precipitated such in it's previous 100 year history is a good sign for the state of the class struggle.

"The death of the poor man is the worst eventuality for the creditor. It is the death of his capital together with the interest."

"Citizen Weston illustrated his theory by telling you that a bowl contains a certain quantity of soup, to be eaten by a certain number of persons, an increase in the broadness of the spoons would produce no increase in the amount of soup. He must allow me to find this illustration rather spoony."
