I am sorry but I just had to laugh when I heard his comments. The only person I took exception to was the sanctimonous union official who wanted to take legal action. My wife is a teacher & went on strike with no pay. The private school where our son is educated was closed and would not give us a rebate. I am a GP and several NHS workers have come in wanting private sick notes (they were not sick) so that they could get paid whilst they were on strike. If you work for the NHS you get 6 months full pay & then 6 month 1/2 pay whilst on the sick.
I wonder how many self employed people reading this will get those same conditions ?
