Jon Gaunt backs unions over government cuts

Radio shock jock and newspaper columnist Jon Gaunt - generally regarded as a figure of the political right - has come out in support of the trade union line on Britain's spending cuts.
In his weekly column for the Spain-based ex-pat newspaper Round Town News Gaunt writes: "I find myself agreeing with the unions who are making the point that it is not their members that got us into this mess but it will be them who suffer the most pain as these cuts are introduced.
"George Orwell was right - all animals are equal but it would seem that the self serving pigs of Westminster and Brussels and the fat cat bankers are more equal than others."
But Gaunt - who has worked for The Sun, BBC London, and TalkSport - will be at odds with many union activists when he suggests that foreign aid should be axed to cut the defecit.
He also calls for Britain to stop spending so much money on the European Union - which will find an echo from some, like the Rail, Maritime, and Transport union (RMT) which backed the No2EU party in the last Euro elections.
In the same article Gaunt describes former Professional Footballers' Association (PFA) chairman Jimmy Hill as one of his heroes and says he was right to smash the maximum wage.
I've produced Jon Gaunt's show on various radio stations. And even stood in as presenter.
