The key fact about that speech by Neil Kinnock was that its central claim was a lie. Liverpool City Council did not sack anyone when it hired taxis to hand out redundancy notices. Those notices were an accounting device. No job was lost.
By contrast, this very day, the privatised rail operators really have been hiring taxis to get their engine drivers to the work, because the booking system has failed. Having reverted to chatterbox type in old age, what has Kinnock to say about that? What has anyone?
