Wes slams Trade Union Bill as an attack on ordinary working people

Wes voted against the Government's Trade Union Bill after delivering a scathing speech in the House of Commons.

Speaking in the debate, Wes called the Bill a "sinister, shabby and shameful piece of legislation".

You can watch Wes's speech here. The Trade Union Bill would heavily restrict the freedoms and civil liberties of workers whilst delivering few, if any benefits, for the general public. 

Wes said: "I had only a couple of minutes to speak against the Trade Union Bill, but I wanted to add my voice to those condemning this appalling attack on civil liberties and workers' rights. It is part of a worrying trend of the Conservatives attempting to rig the system to stifle opposition: first they came for charities, now they're trying to gag trades unions.
