Quotes

Addressing Francis Maude , the Cabinet Office minister, Dugher added: "you remind me of a man trying to fight everyone in the pub at the same time. but when the country needs to see a negotiated settlement, what have we got? ministerial belligerence revelling in confrontation, where strike action by the unions is almost a public policypolicy success for a government desperate for a fight. it's sabre-rattling, it's union bashing, it's playing politics, it's a deliberate distraction and frankly it's pathetic."
