Union action not unreasonable

Brian Cowen and Alan Dukes are sending a very strange message to low-paid workers in the public and private sectors that have already experienced severe reductions. It helps to confirm suspicions that the burden of economic recovery will be dumped downwards.

The elite of our society will merely carry on, without any remorse for their actions in delivering a financial catastrophe. In this country the old pals' act is everything. In such circumstances the actions of the CPSU at the Passport Office do not appear unreasonable.
