We're all in this together



















No major surprises from the Tory conference. If elected, a Tory government will freeze the pay of low-paid public sector workers, slash tax credits, extend the retirement age and introduce tax breaks for private schools. Yet the rich will be left hardly touched.

In the Netherlands, a cap on bankers' bonuses has been introduced. Under the Tories, the bankers will be let off scot-free. As Paul O'Shea from UNISON Cymru has said today:


"Yet again they (the Tories) are aiming to look after the wealthy, while low-paid public sector workers and those members of the public that depend upon public services pay the price for the bankers' greed."


Quite.

No change there then. Same old torys. And its pretty much a given that devolution will be way down on thier list of priorities, if its on it at all.
