But Mr Kenny, general secretary of the GMB union, said: "Cameron and Clegg have a damned cheek in asking public sector workers to co-operate in sacking thousands of them. It is an utter outrage."
He said unions were "perfectly capable of speaking up on their behalf" and would be resisting "savage cuts in public services".
No, unions are not 'perfectly capable of speaking up on their behalf'. The 'unions', or rather union leadership, are generally a bunch of far-left loons who do not represent what their members think. To try to say that the workers themselves are incapable of speaking up for themselves and their own opinions is disgusting in all honesty.
Of course, the government could go one step further, and offer financial rewards for good ideas. Now that really would irritate the unions.
