Government stung by union criticism

Gordon Brown is today reeling from a stinging rebuke after the leader of the Public and Commercial Services Union described his government as "the worst in the history of the country". Mark Serwotka delivered his damning indictment on the UK government at the National Union of Teachers annual conference in Liverpool.

Despite the fact that the number of employees employed by the state has increased dramatically under the Labour government the unions are still concerned about working conditions and remuneration for their members. If the UK government is unable to bank on the backing of trade unions across the UK then Gordon Brown most certainly has a fight on his hands at the next election. He has recently upset the middle classes of the UK with an ever-growing number of taxes and additional costs being targeted at this particular area of the UK population. If Gordon Brown has also upset the unions, where will his core vote come from at the next election?

Even though Gordon Brown and the Labour Party appear to be faring better in the polls than they have done for some time there is growing concern about a lack of focus from the government. Is the Labour Party message really getting over to those who matter?
