With increased borrowing, exports falling and the British economy in recession, the Tory-led Coalition is heading for a major showdown with the working class.
The Tories have already launched their attack on “lazy British workers”, who need to be taught a hard lesson in hard work. They have branded British workers “the worse idlers” in the world and said that we should emulate the work ethic of Asia. In other words, we need to stop shirking and work harder and longer for less pay and pensions. However, for us to “compete” with Asia – on the same pay and conditions - means a race to the bottom.
