Marching shoulder to shoulder with steel workers and anti-austerity campaigners from across the UK, Unite general secretary Len McCluskey made it clear Unite refused to accept there was no alternative to the government’s policies of cut and burn.
In his speech at the rally, McCluskey said, “The establishment shames our democracy. It is up to all of us – trade unionists, students, pensioners, those in work and those not in work, working together, black and white, to send a clear message – that we will fight, fight, fight for a better tomorrow.”
Referring to the explosive expose of the tax dodging schemes for the world’s wealthiest, called the Panama Papers, he then donned a Panama hat.
“The only thing I have from Panama, Mr Cameron, is a hat,” he added.
