TUC phoney war is over - Brendan Barber

TUC General Secretary gives a hard hitting interview in the Guardian, as unions countdown to the massive mobilisation planned or London in 11 days time:

"The cuts will be at the heart of the demo on 26 March, but I think increasingly we'll be trying to shine the spotlight in a major way on quite what the implications are of this on other aspects of what's going on in public services, which is this wholesale change in the basis on which they are going to operate: massive privatisation threatened." http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/mar/14/tuc-phoney-war-against-government-over-brendan-barber
