Unite's Leader Staying In Waldorf Despite Grace And Favour House

The Mail has the story that Derek Simpson, leader of the union Unite has been staying in a £399 per night suite at the Waldorf despite having a £800,000 grace and favour house just 35 minutes away.

The full story is here.

I wonder what Unites members will make of their money being spent in such a way?

Simpson, along with other union leaders has been very vocal about bankers large salaries and bonuses. But the Sunday Mail lists a number what they call Fat Cat Perks that Simpson enjoys from the union, including a chauffeur-driven-car.

Daniel, the Unite members appear to be so inert it makes me wonder how they even manage to struggle to work. The Unions are laughing all the way to the off-licence for their bottles of Cristal. The bosses will behave this way as long as the membership allow it.
