Ministry of Defence spends £2.5m a year on full-time union staff despite cutting thousands of troops

Daily Mail
"The Ministry of Defence is squandering £2.5million a year of taxpayers' money on full-time union staff while forcing crippling cuts on Britain's Armed Forces. The cash-strapped department is shelling out the fortune in public subsidies for salaries so activists can carry out union duties. The bloated MoD is footing the bill for the equivalent of 123 civil servants to spend a staggering 27,000 days a year on union business - or 220 days each."
