I know a Labour Govt will always seek to strengthen worker’s rights but the Tories have history of harming them. I don’t trust the Tories to preserve anything if we left the EU. Can you imagine the Conservative Party introducing the Health & Safety at Work Act? Me neither.

Employment Act, ‘80 & ‘82 TU Act, ‘84 Employment Act ‘88 & ‘90 Dock Work Act ‘89 TU & Labour Relation Act ‘92 TU reform & Employment Rights Act, ‘93 TU Act 2016. In or out of the EU, the Tories have consistently sought to weaken workers rights - to the point of obsession.

All good stuff there needed to turn the country around you will note most of these acts are to do with curbing Trade Unions which takes narrow protectionist views which isn’t the same a Workers Rights and were counter productive..Oh and 1992 the last one..so irrelevant to now.

2016 was the last one. All of those acts removed power from workers. Every single one.

Nope they removed power from self serving Unions in order to grow the Economy and Protect and Grow Jobs..it’s a concept beyond Marxists and Socialist mind set ..any thoughts on Welfare State responsible for 4th Underclass or is that because Unions didn’t have power to fix it?

The only people promoting, consistently, “self-serving” behaviour are your beloved Tories. I have many thoughts on the welfare state, it’s successes, failures, and where it should go next. None of which involve starving people into serfdom (present Tory policy).
