Striking UK workers playing into Putin’s hands, says Zahawi

Speaking on Sky News’ Ridge on Sunday, Zahawi insisted it was up to union leaders to call off the strike and suggested they were playing into the Russian president’s agenda as he uses high energy prices fuelling inflation as a “weapon” in his war against Ukraine.

Zahawi said the government needed to show discipline in not raising public sector pay in line with inflation, which could fuel inflation further.

Urging unions not to proceed with strike action, he said: “This is a time to come together and to send a very clear message to Mr Putin that we’re not going to be divided in this way … Our message to the unions is to say ‘this is not a time to strike, this is a time to try and negotiate’.”

Our government officials just announced that the recession will deepen by mid-2023.  If inflation continues to build and wages do not increase, sooner or later we're going to have social unrest due to food insecurity.  Americans these days are, by and large, a docile folk BUT, if government allows so much chaos that they begin having trouble just feeding their families and they will shed that docile manner for something a bit more anarchic.
