    Why does it matter? Whether he supported them or not, nothing would have been any different.

    Tories have been in power for 12 years and have an 80 seat majority. They don't care about these strikes, because its in their interest it goes ahead so they can do their usual and create division and blame everyone else.

    The Daily Mail's front page headline yesterday saying Labour isn't working, when the Govt haven't lifted a finger to try and negotiate or prevent it. Not one meeting in the last week between RMT and the Government to try and resolve this strike.

    But yeah... Starmer's fault.

    Millions will read and believe it. As I've said many times - people aren't too bright in this country.

    David Blunkett has called this right and urged the RMT not to strike as to do so at this time will both lose them support in the court of public opinion and play right into the hands of the Tory Party. He said their unwillingness to take a more considered and reasonable view would lead them to walk into an "elephant trap" that would only further set back the cause of unions in general.

    Starmer needs to stand up here and be prepared to p iss off the more radical left wing in order to better protect the interests of more moderate unions and Party members in order to fight for better equalities in this country at a time when they are most needed. Sitting on the fence on this will not cut it. Has he the will though? Sadly doubt it.

    As usual youíre hiding from the question.

    What is Labour and Starmerís position on this?

    Iíve watched various news outlets and I havenít a clue!?

    Is he willing to give the unions the rise they want ( if he were in power ) and does he agree with the strikes?
