Junior Doctors Boost Democracy.

98% of Junior Doctors voted for strike action in their resistance to the imposition of a new contract of employment.

The Tories formed a government with the support of only 24.4% of the electorate but in their Trade Union Bill they will mandate that in “important public services” at least 40% of the membership vote in favour of action. They say this will “boost democracy”. 74.5% of BMA members eligible to vote did so, for strike action.

Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary of State, calls the vote for action “very disappointing”, yet he refuses talks at ACAS.

Doctors have shown support for their union the BMA, which is a boost for their democracy. The government will assert their dictatorship; we will see them bully, we will see them try to break the strike, guardians of “freedom” will no doubt complain and court action may be taken against the BMA.

Workers as patients and in our unions have to support our Junior Doctors who are acting for a safe Health Service and continuation of high quality medical education. They have found themselves on the front line of the battle against the Trade Union Bill.

Don’t let them fight alone! Protect the right to strike!

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
