Bob Crow, Mark Serwotka, Christine Blower and Len McCluskey give a lead at the TUC March.

“We’ve marched twice now. It’s about time we looked at the practicalities of a general strike.”
So said Bob Crow to massive applause on the march.
Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary, said, “If marching doesn’t stop them, we’ve got to do what they’ve done in Greece, Portugal and Spain. We’ve got to have strike action right across the economy.

“It’s not enough to wish it. We’ve got to make it happen. Let’s say to our trade union leaders, me included, the time has come to strike and when we strike together we can win.”

Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT, said workers needed to strike together—“when the time is right and all the practicalities have been considered”.

Len McCluskey called for a hand vote on the matter at the demonstration and unsurprisingly got about 200,000 yes votes and none againsy.
“We won’t get what we want simply by asking,” he said. “There was a motion at the TUC to consult on a general strike.
“We were asked to look at the practicalities and start a consultation. Well let’s start the consultation today – are you prepared to strike?”
McCluskey said, “Let’s have a vote.” The crowd voted. “I think that’s carried.” It should be.

Azov battalion surrender at the Azovstal steelworks; a symbolic defeat for Ukraine. US, UK & some EU governments still want to fight the war to the last Ukrainian; they continue warmongering and sending weaponry to Ukraine.

#Russia says it has no problem with #Sweden or #Finland, hence no problem with it joining #NATO. It will however monitor its deployment of troops and weaponry, and take action appropriate to the threats.
As in Britain it's up to the people to say #No2NATO.
