JOHN Kane, the man who led a successful trades union campaign for Thorp to open, has slammed the decision to shut it in six years’ time.
Have your say
Mr kane I'm sure the workers you represent will be happy to know what you really think of them sitting on their backsides while you do all the work for them,your statement does not make sense, no wonder nothing ever moved forward it sounds like an excuse taken from woodburns book of excuses.
To be perfectly honest I do not mind constructive critism. But to read Arthur Millie bleating on ( the man who would be king ) if he had the bottle to put himself before an electorate.
And James o criticising me regarding making a career out of representing people, I have to respond to people who have done nothing other than complain, sit on their backsides and offer nothing constructive by stating put your names forward. We all have a choice in life you can pay your money then sit in stands and condemn
Unfortunately the militant union dinosaurs of the old era pop out of the woodwork now and again and assume the old gravy train days still abound at Sellafield. Wake up and smell the coffee comrades, the days of an endless pot of money are (thankfully) history and employees have to learn to live in the real world. Still the old boys negotiated some pretty handy pension deals eh ?
