Unite's reaction to David Cameron's speech to the Tory party conference

Unite joint general secretary, Derek Simpson said:

" At the height of the worst recession in decades Cameron said nothing about job creation, nothing about supporting our industries and nothing about reigning in his friends in the city who caused economic meltdown.

"Cameron pandered to the Thatcherite small state obsession at a time when anyone can see the need for more government intervention in the economy.

"The Tories are trying to fool the nation with Cameron playing the good cop and Osborne playing the bad cop.

"Cameron desperately tried to row back from the bleak picture painted by his shadow chancellor. No matter what he said the Tories will swing the axe at the public sector while making ordinary families work for longer and for less. "
