    My view is that broadly the government should just pay up – for the teachers and ultimately for most of the public sector employees on strike.

    In short it is not unreasonable for the government to be expected to negotiate in good faith and to do better than the generally poor offers that have been made. If the government promises an improved deal that falls short of the higher double digit increases that are being demanded I am sure a compromise could be possible. I believe that giving double digit rise matching inflation is not wise or advisable – equally I know that what the government has enforced is far short of what is needed – a better pay offer in the middle is what is required.

    If they will not negotiate pay increases any further, then I am confident the strikes will persist. What they agree to pay ultimately should vary between the various professions I do agree that the various unions have different levels of support and sympathy and some may be more deserving of larger increases – if the government negotiates with this in mine a lot of difficulty could be avoided if these issues can be resolved with additional pay and sufficient compromise on both sides, then employees can get back to work.

    That’s right, blame the teachers. Not the government who have chronically underfunded education over the past 13 years. I don’t know why people believe this nonsense that teachers are paid exorbitant amounts. You can easily look up the teacher pay scale with a quick Google search. Most schools are feeding hungry children breakfast in the morning out of their own budget whilst the government (who have massively subsidised meals at work) tried to block feeding hungry children. I know teachers who have to work a second job at the weekend to make ends meet. Why is that acceptable in a job that requires a degree and working long hours in a position of trust?

    Nigel Please tell us why Boris Johnson is getting together with L Graham. L Graham called for someone to take out Putin? They both are Putin haters. Are they trying to influence Trump in some way as he could be next President U.S.

    We never went on strike during WW1 & 2, we persevered, knowing we'd have to pull together and make sacrifices to ride out the evil. That is as true today as it was then.
    This is the worst time to strike.
    Nigel's right; inflation must come down, and these strikes serve to further erode our already fragile economy. We will see better days, if we excersise patience and self control. Better pay is on the horison. Until then, we need to band together once more, ride out the storms as we've always done in times of crisis, It is within our power to set ourselves on a positive trajectory, rather than dig ourselves further into the abyss.

    Lol the entitled window licking mongs of Britain out in force again. When will you all realise that if you want doctors, nurses, teachers etc to stay and provide a service you have to reward them, not whinge and throw your toys out the pram….

    Two things need to happen to improve the lives of teachers. Firstly teachers and schools need to embrace technology and start to use it in the classroom instead of returning to their traditional methods of teaching now they are back in the classroom. School management need to stop putting pressure on teachers to force them to dance for Ofsted and instead let them get on with their teaching. Money is not the issue, time and quality of life is the important thing.

    The west has decided to pay the so called 'cost of freedom' military and other support for Ukraine for as long and as much as possible. where do you think this money comes from? falling from the sky? You decided to pay the cost of freedom, this is the result. pin the ukrainian flag onto your shirt and enjoy the winter.

    They are striking to disrupt the government and to increase inflation. They will then blame the failing economy and NHS on the conservatives to get Labour in. It is no surprise the Marxists are all doing this now before the coming election.
    The increasing inflation will hit the poorest in society hardest. Orwell was right about socialists – they care little for the poor.

    Teachers are asking for a 10% pay rise for doing a lousy job, the kids are being used and abused again; you don't reward these people for doing a terrible job especially when they teach kids a WOKE CRT virtue signalling curriculum, you would probably support their claim if they were actually teaching the kids Maths, English, British History, Geography and culture, along with long standing British values.

    Don't forget that Teachers only teach for 39 weeks … with 13 weeks holiday.
    So why are they getting a pay rise?

    So how much is the government paying to keep illegal migrants? There's a whole bunch of money that could be freed up.

    Our teachers and nurses and other key workers kept the country going during Covid while this Government partied and gave themselves pay rises and their cronies millions.

    Schools must stay OPEN. Teachers should be included in the law of essential services that can't strike.

    Looking through the comments I can see why the country is in a mess, people are just thinking of themselves and just complain when things happen that they don't agree with. The people that are on strike should be getting the full support of the country and bring it to a complete standstill, but no just think of the inconvenience it would bring. It's the future of Britain your fighting for not just a pay rise think of your children's future, do you want them to live under a Nazi Dictatorship being told what you can or can't do or be free to live in peace and freedom. Wake Up You Selfish People

    Imagine trying to remove your child from school for a holiday. They cite you are denying your children their education – what a bunch of hypocrites! These money grabbing dullards knew what their pay would be when they signed up. And another thing, what happened to it 'being a vocation and not a job'?

    Children should educate themselves as it's never been easier to study and the smart children will be millionaires by age 14. Look, smart children apply stuff while the dumbed down children just scroll stuff. Hahaha. Do you apply or scroll? Answers on a postcard to Ukraine centre for WW3. Stop all wars or incinerate in the future nuclear WW3. Your kids have no future if you don't stop Ukraine escalation you dumb nutcases.

    don't give into blackmail-teachers are overpaid and have too many holidays. if they want a rasise, reduce their holidays by 50% and ensure they stop teaching their left wing agendas, no more trans rubbish or climate lies to start with-horrid people

    Funny how they can find the money to bail out a load of corrupt financial Institutions find billions for covid Ppe that ultimately did nothing to stop the pandemic but can’t give a pay rise to public sector workers
