Unionists care little for future of our workers

Where are the threats to bring down the Government? For decades, we voted for unionists who seemed prepared to defend our right to be treated like any other British citizen.

Yet last week, after we were told that Ulster's teachers, nurses, office staff etc, could in future be paid at a much lower rate than someone doing an identical job in Britain, there was barely a whimper from unionist parties.

They threaten to bring down the Government over the issue of emblems in our jails, but they seem to care little when salaries and pensions of Ulster workers are stolen to pay off the debts of London bankers.
