FBU conference – John McDonnell speaks

The government is “dismantling the welfare state, brick by brick” Hayes and Harlington MP John McDonnell told the Fire Brigades Union annual conference in Southport today.

The Localism Bill currently going through Parliament means an end to council housing, said Mr McDonnell, and he accused Health Secretary Andrew Lansley of planning “the full privatisation of the National Health Service.”

“I support the students who occupied Fortnum and Mason in March”, McDonnell told the Fire Brigades Union annual conference in Southport today.

“The casualties were one chocolate rabbit. Well, there have to be sacrifices” he said.
