Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has reaffirmed his party’s complete support for any workers who wish to take strike action, support that will remain in place right up until the moment they actually do it.
Sir Keir has come under criticism for his party’s lacklustre support for the RMT union and the current strike action currently underway, which has led to the party leader taking a public position on something for once.
“Labour always has been, and always will be, the party for the working man. Sorry, person.
“We stand fully behind any work and his right to strike. If they want to plan a strike, then yes, they have our full support. If they want to threaten a strike, then yes, they have our full support. If they want to CALL a strike, then yes, they have our full support.
“But, you know, if they actually strike, then, well, yes, I suppose we do, kind of, sort of, support them.
“I would argue that even lacklustre support for workers currently on strike is significantly better than the Tories, so it is perfectly in keeping with our current strap line – “A bit less Tory than the Tories”.
“Anyway, vote Labour. Please.”
