300 thousand (estimated) march in London as a result of government policy on cutting public services. The response?
Business Secretary Vince Cable said the government will not change its economic strategy as a result of the TUC protest.
He told the BBC’s Politics Show: “Certainly we’re listening. I talk regularly to the trade union movement, I think it’s important we have a dialogue with them but we’re not going to change the basic economic strategy.
“No government – coalition, Labour or other – would change its fundamental economic policy simply in response to a demonstration of that kind.”
