Now the man who wrecked the PCS Union, General Secretary of PCS has entered the fray. Austin Harney, a hard left activist writes on the PCS Activate Face Book page:
If we are serious about fighting for our pay, terms, conditions, and most of all, our jobs in the Civil Service, I encourage as many PCS members to sign up for £3 as registered supporters for Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party. Mark Serwotka, the General Secretary of PCS, made the same encouragement in his speech to everybody at the anti - austerity rally.
Already, the two largest Trade Unions, UNITE and UNISON have nominated Jeremy Corbyn as leadership candidate
I am, currently, a member of the national committee for the LRC (Labour Representation Committee and the most Left Wing faction of the Labour Party) and a campaigner for PCS against the cuts in the Public Sector within the Labour Party.
Let us build this campaign in PCS for Jeremy Corbyn's contest as leader of the Labour Party who has promised to end austerity, once and for all!
Whilst Harney might be a long term Labour Party member regardless of his political views, Serwotka isn't. More to the point Serwotka has joined in every hair brained scheme to replace and destroy the Labour Party, ranging from his involvement with the SWP and George Galloway in Respect to his latest allies the Socialist Party (Militant Tendency) in the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition.
Thing is PCS is not affiliated to the Labour Party and much of conference is dominated by anti-Labour speeches from the assortment of trotskyist types that fill the ranks of the hall.
PCS is also a fine example of being run by people who oppose austerity but are unable to run their own union efficiently and are implementing cuts to staff and membership services, selling off their one major asset (the headquarters building in Clapham Junction) and are still going cap in hand to Len McCluskey for Unite to simply absorb their sinking ship.
Hardly an example to set when opposing austerity.
Serwotka's leadership has been a disaster for the PCS union which has faced splits and the loss of thousands of members. There are lessons for the Labour Party to learn from all this.
Corbyn, like Serwotka is a gift to the Tories.
With men like this leading the Labour and Trade Union movement we might as well just hand the keys to Downing Street and the demise of our rights to the Tories now.
A vote for Corbyn is a vote for Cameron.
