Jasper's mad attack upon the workers

At long last the cheap journalism of freedom of information requests made months ago by implausibly named Torygraph hack "Jasper Copping" has seen the light of day (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/7981717/Taxpayers-spend-millions-paying-for-trade-union-activities.html).



The Poujadiste wing of support for the ConDems is trying to open a new front in its war on the working class with tabloid attacks upon the notional costs of trade union facility time.



Trade union time off is both a statutory requirement and a common sense arrangement.



In some ways it is shaming only to be attacked by the Tories' media equivalent of a third eleven.



Still it will be a useful test of Labour leadership contenders how effectively they now defend our unions in response to this attack.
