The Government has hit back at TUC claims that the UK remains in a job crisis, with a true scale of unemployment that far exceeds the official figures.
Once again the unions are showing just how out of touch they are.
Rather than welcoming the fact that employment is at a record high and the number of people claiming out of work benefits has fallen, they are determined to talk down both the economy and perhaps worse - the people who have actually worked hard to find themselves a job.
This is nothing but a cynical ploy from Labour's trade unions. The economy is growing and jobs are being created and they can't bear to welcome that.
