Nick Perry, Lib Dem parliamentary campaigner for Hastings & Rye, has slammed Chief Secretary to the Treasury Yvette Cooper MP over public sector pay. Taking part in the BBC’s Question Time programme, which was held at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill, on Thursday (26 June), Nick responded angrily to the Minister’s request for public sector workers to accept below-inflation pay rises..

Nick said, “How very dare Yvette Cooper ask us to accept a sensible 2%. If her government had been as enthusiastic about taxing those who have benefited disproportionately from the boom, then I would be more willing to listen to what she has to say.”

Nick is an approved social worker in working age adult mental health services, and is a member of UNISON.
