Shadow transport minister defies Starmer on rail strike picketing

Labour’s shadow transport minister Sam Tarry is joining striking rail workers on the picket lines this morning.

This is despite Sir Keir starmer’s prohibition against his frontbench team doing this.

Speaking to ITV One’s Good Morning Britain programme outside of London Euston station today, Tarry explained: “Some of the lowest-paid workers are on strike today in the rail industry, safety critical workers, workers who make sure our railways get people to work and do so safely.

“It can’t be accepted anymore, that people just have to accept that inflation is out of control. The Government’s doing nothing on the cost-of-living crisis.”
