Lord Digby Jones condemns BA Strike action

On BBC's Daily Politics on Monday 15th March Lord Digby Jones condemned the planned strike action by Unite Union at BA.

"This is a really good example of turkeys voting for Christmas! The cabin crew are marvellous people but they enjoy pay and terms and conditions that hark back to the days of nationalisation. They have the best in the whole worldwide sector. They are imperilling thousands of jobs and millions of pounds of profits, thus taxes used to build schools and hospitals not to mention denigrating the UK brand all around the world in selfish pursuit of the impossible."
