Tories defeated on NHS pay rise motion after DUP backs Labour

Post by Sassy on Thu Sep 14, 2017 9:37 am

It comes after the DUP signalled it would vote with Jeremy Corbyn's party calling for higher wages for health professionals

The Conservatives have suffered a defeat in the Commons on a Labour motion calling for higher wages for NHS staff and an end to the public sector pay cap.

It comes after the Democratic Unionist Party – responsible for propping up Theresa May’s Government – earlier signalled the party would support Jeremy Corbyn’s motion.

While the motion is non-binding and would not require a change in Government policy it is evidence of the fragility of the Prime Minister’s deal with the Northern Irish party made in the wake of the inconclusive general election result.

It marks the first time DUP MPs have voted in a way to pressure ministers since the party agreed its confidence and supply arrangement with Ms May.

Making a point of order, Jonathan Ashworth, the Shadow Health Secretary, said the Government did not divide on the vote because they would have lost the motion brought forward by Labour.

He said: “Is it now clear that the House has been unanimous in saying we should end the pay cap in the NHS and give health workers a fair pay rise?

“And is it also now clear that the reason the Government did not divide on this motion is because they knew they would lose?”

Speaking earlier on Wednesday, DUP MP Ian Paisley said MPs could “send out a clarion call” on the issue by backing the non-binding motion.

Well I won't be listening to your political opinions anymore Sassy,because they are rubbish.

You told me Corbyn was going t win the GE and Labour lost by a mile.......and I lost a tenner ater backing Labour to win.

And you like the media and Labour are making too much of this DUP counter vote because in the long run,the DUP will back the Tories because they know Labour are IRA supporters.

Ahoy Commander!

Corbyn didn't win first time around because that victory would have been deemed null and void, however I'm sure I recall you voting for Corbyn, along with the rest of the floppetts, indeed monkey boy himself bragged about voting for him several times during the leadership contest, that must smart some.

The coalition of chaos and terrorist sympathisers May warned about, did materialise in the form of the UDA/DUP how those words came back to haunt her now.

Tories are as ever a magnet for chaos and disaster, best vote out, vote Corbyn!
