Following the suicide bombing in the Manchester Arena where at least 22 people, including children, have been killed and more than 50 injured, general secretary of the Fire Brigades Union Matt Wrack, who was born in Manchester, is today going to meet some of the firefighters who attended the scene.

Matt Wrack said:
“On behalf of firefighters across the UK we condemn this barbaric attack in Manchester, an assault on ordinary people going about their lives, which ruthlessly targeted children and young people. We send our thoughts and condolences to those who have lost family and friends and send our best wishes to those injured. The people of Manchester have demonstrated their humanity and solidarity by their immediate support of those affected by this terrible atrocity.

“Once again our emergency services have been on the front line of responding to a terror attack. We pay tribute to our own firefighters and our colleagues in all emergency services who did everything possible to save lives and keep the public safe.”

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
