Warsi: Miliband too weak to condemn strike organisers who pay his bills

Today Ed Miliband has backed down in the face of his trade union paymasters and refused to condemn them for organising the strikes, saying ‘I’m not going to condemn the strike...I’m not going to condemn those who’ve taken this decision’, even though negotiations are still going on.

This comes just one day after Ed Miliband said he doesn’t ‘support strikes’. It is also in contradiction to Miliband’s much repeated line that ‘strikes are wrong while negotiations are still going on’

Co-Chairman of the Conservative Party Sayeeda Warsi said:

“Ed Miliband used to say that strikes are wrong while negotiations are still going on. But today, he has shown his weakness in the face of his trade union paymasters and backed down, refusing to condemn this irresponsible and unnecessary strike.

“Tomorrow’s strike will harm hospital patients, inconvenience families and cost businesses millions of pounds. Ed Miliband should do the right thing for our economy and our country by telling his union paymasters to accept the generous pensions offer and call the strike off.”
