Time to negotiate

I agree absolutely with Norman Baker MP about the need for people to get round the table and sort out the current and forthcoming air and rail disputes by negotiation rather than megaphone diplomacy.

Ideally our elected politicians would be a credible force in promoting a negotiated settlement. Whether a Labour government can fulfil this role when it is so dependent on, and influenced by, the Unite trade union is another matter - and demonstrates the pernicious effects of 'big backer' money on political life.
