Unite: Chancellor delivers flat speech as economy flatlines

Commenting on Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne's speech to the Conservative party conference, Unite general secretary, Len Mcluskey said:

"The Chancellor delivered a flat speech to match the flatlining economy that he is creating.

"George Osborne refuses to see or accept the massive economic damage his policies are creating for our country.

"He is a Chancellor who wants to make it easier to hire and fire at will while making it harder for workers to challenge bad bosses. George Osborne then has the nerve to repeat the discredited claim that we are all in this together.

"Almost 2.5 million people are unemployed. George Osborne has not created a single job. Now he is making things worse and trying to silence the very people who see through him and his government, workers and their unions."
