Britain needs a government that invests in public services, says UNISON

Leaders’ debate shows Boris Johnson is out of touch

Commenting on the ITV debate tonight (Tuesday) between the leaders of the Conservative and Labour parties ahead of the General Election, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“Boris Johnson has clearly demonstrated he doesn’t have a clue how ordinary people are suffering after nine years of Tory austerity and that’s why we need a Labour government to save our public services.”

Notes to editors:
– UNISON is the UK’s largest union, with more than 1.3 million members providing public services – in education, local government, the NHS, police service and energy. They are employed in both the public and private sectors.
