    ...is defeated by Tories and DUP

    "It’s not every day you find a single vote that fails so catastrophically on every single level. To vote to maintain the public sector pay freeze is bad policy, worse politics and, with the DUP’s involvement, a pathetic and despicable farce.


    "The Labour amendment was simple. In light of the promise to hand over our money to keep May in power, give our public sector works the pay rise they deserve. Not a massive pay rise, just so that their wages keep up with inflation."

    MPs vote to reject Labour's amendment to the Queen's speech calling for public sector pay cap to be lifted, by 323 votes to 309

    Labour under Brown held talks with the DUP in 2010 with a view to forming a coalition

    no details of the talks have been made public , labour refuse to release any details :)

    Hmmm I wonder why ?? ;)

    Nice propaganda picture ;)

    That sums you up perfectly. Disgusting not honouring our police, firemen and emergency workers.

    I hope one day you need the emergency services and they don't turn up.

    I really don't understand why you would object to ending the pay freeze and increasing the number of police and firefighters.

    And then u lecture people on not understanding fiscal policy :)

    And what do u know about emergency services /fire fighters ? My uncle (now deceased) was a station officer for 6 years at a firestation just up road from here.

    He retired at 48 on a very good pension , he died at the age of 82. The pension he got plus the lump sum was in part paid for by the tax payer.

  13. Are those days of large pensions gone now tho?
    Even if they still get them, firefighters are worth every single penny for what they do for you and I.

    Has John Major issued details of his talks?
    You must be trying to make some kind of point. I wonder what it is. Perhaps you are saying "Theresa has done what even Brown and Major didn't do."

    She's spent a lot of our money trying to hang on to her house in London.
