Caroline Lucas (aka St Caroline), Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, today proudly tweeted she had scabbed on the Brighton refuse workers' strike despite her earlier claims of support.
Binmen and street sweepers in the GMB union voted 96% in favour of industrial action against pay cuts of up to £4000 each per year.
In the offending tweet, she actually re-tweeted a post congratulating her for scabbing:
One Brighton council worker stated "She is worse than Mick Philpotts, Charlie Brooker and people who refer to Gordon Brown as an unelected prime minister." A statement on 'community clean-ups' from the striking binmen is available here.
Please note: Labour supporters have been circulating this article. We should point out they are no better, and were actively breaking strikes even in the famous 1945-51 government. Brighton Labour condemned the Cityclean strikers and urged a return to work.
