Blair turns back on old union

What do you do if your former union decides to reject the fiscal treaty? In the case of former Civil and Public Secretary Union (CPSU) general secretary Blair Horan, the answer is to join the trade union group supporting the fiscal treaty.

He is now the secretary general of the Charter Group -- and if anything, his warnings against a No vote have been among the strongest of the campaign. Pensions could be cut, social welfare payments could be slashed and if the euro collapsed, it would cost us €11,500 each. You can take it that he won't be following the CPSU's advice to its members to vote No.
