JOHN McDONNELL condemned “out of touch” Philip Hammond yesterday after the Tory Chancellor was reported as saying that public-sector workers were overpaid.
Mr McDonnell hit out at Mr Hammond for the comments he allegedly made at a Cabinet meeting last week on the Andrew Marr show yesterday, saying he had been on the picket line with striking hospitals cleaners in London the day before and one worker had given him her payslip.
He said: “This woman, fulltime worker, earns £297 a week. At the moment, median rent in London is nearly £1,500 [a month]. To buy a house in London is half a million pounds. Ask Philip Hammond if he can live on that.”
Mr Hammond refused to deny he made the comments and said that public-sector workers were 10 per cent better off than private-sector workers as they enjoy “very generous contributions” that their employers pay in for their “very generous” pensions.
However, the TUC has published research which showed that wages have plummeted by thousands of pounds a year in real terms since 2010.

And coming from a man who was recently mentioned on Channel Four Dispatches for owning land that will soon make him a small fortune running into millions when he allows development of the site. It`s a green site too. :( As Mr McDonnell said yesterday, these people live on another planet. It`s all very well having wealth, but denying it to those worse off is just ridiculous. It will be the same when the frackers come looking for land to drill on and ruin our water systems just to gain profit. The people in this country should take real action here and STOP these greed merchants before it`s too late. Stop working, down tools for days on end and halt the economy. That`s all they care about.

Did i hear him mention the word politicians :cheer:
Should be due big pay cut anytime now as after all "were all in this together" what utter crap.

If there are any in society today who are over paid and most born into a privileged position then its them on the green seats;at least a lot of them.
