What We Saw

Rob Williams on Sky News

The junior doctors received a steadfast defence on Sky News on 1 September. The Socialist Party's Rob Williams, chair of the National Shop Stewards Network, took on a right-wing economics journalist.

She argued that austerity has hardly happened. What cuts have happened have had no effect. And "immoral" junior doctors don't care about their patients.

Rob pointed out that half a million public sector workers have lost their jobs, and wages have not recovered since the crisis. He said the Trade Union Congress should organise joint industrial action to support the doctors. They are striking precisely in defence of their patients and the NHS.

One outraged Labour Party member took to Facebook with this story about the leadership election. It seems you can vote for whoever you want - as long as it's Owen Smith!
