Majority of UK public back the aims of TUC March in London on 26th March 2011
The majority of the UK public back the huge demonstration that too place yesterday (March 26th) in opposition of the coalition government's spending cuts, a new poll has shown.
According to the survey, carried out by YouGov on behalf of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), 52 per cent support the aims of the TUC March for the Alternative campaign.
The results also revealed that one-in-five Conservative voters are behind the union-organised protests, with just 31 per cent disagreeing with the action being taken.
Commenting on the findings, the organisation's general secretary Brendan Barber said: "I'm sure that many of our critics will try to write us off today as a minority, vested interest. This poll nails that lie."
