Lets be honest - no party shows much respect for teachers.
Before the war they cut all teachers wages, some bloody pretence or another. Think of Shirley Williams saying that she didn't intend to listen union leaders opinions about salary structure, as their opinions were not worth paying attention to. Think of Keith Joseph telling blatant lies about how they had consulted with teachers for ten years before introducing the National Curriculum. The man was full of it.
This business of government finding ways to loot our pension funds should be stopped though - they simply have no right to this money. They get enough in tax, and they never explain properly how they are spending it.
Everyone pays tax. VAT on everything. Fuel tax. Unavoidable for most of us.
I don't think striking will do it. And no political party will forego getting their fingers in that honeypot.
Just for once wouldn't it be great if the unions got smart and took the bastards to court and challenged the legality of this embezzlement?
