2.75%? My Arse!
Roger Phillips' phone-in on BBC Radio Merseyside took a call today from local actor & comedian Ricky Tomlinson, supporting the local authority workers on the first of their two day strike. Tomlinson, a former trade unionist who was jailed for defying Tory anti-union laws in the 70s, delivered a trenchant & forthright show of support. It's nice to know Ricky hasn't forgotten his roots. His honesty even extended to stating his salary in the last year, £100,000. However, he said that he would never forget that he was once unemployed & had to deal with bailiffs.
