I wholeheartedly support workers access to unions, most people only experience the tough side of unions e.g the strikes. but without unions, as Forest Hillier notes, we'd be back in the dark ages with no rights for workers. The only place I have ever worked where there was a commitment to work life balance was where there was an active union.

I think there were lots of interesting points in Ed's speech, he is something of an unapologetic idealist - the sentiment of that it is an atrocity that some people earn more in a month than a care worker in a year. It says quite a lot about our society. Interesting referest to Sheffield Forgemasters too, which is Nick Cleggs area. I like the sentiment about a change in approach to politics and, maybe naive, I believe it. I do feel like this is a new era for labour and he will be an effect leader of the opposition (hopefully for a shorter time as possibleClosedeyes)

As for BA, well I am depressed with companies flogging their staff to appease detached shareholders and award senior management massive bonus.
