As the Fire Brigade union continue their strike, it is worth considering factors that resonate across most of the public sector, writes Glynis Millward.
As far as I am concerned (and NO ONE can convince me otherwise) the tories want the public sector work and jobs privatised.
They remind me of the Tim Robbins character in Shawshank Redemption, where he chips away at the wall in his cell over a period of years, using a rock hammer, in order to tunnel his way out and covers the resulting hole with a poster.
That’s what the tories are doing, chipping away at the public sector, a little bit of privatisation here a little bit of privatisation there.
I think this is what they are trying to do with the fire service.
