Jack, it's not distortion it's fact. The highest turnout, I believe was one of the teachers unions, which could still only muster 45% turnout and then only muster 78% support. The lowest turnout was 25% which only mustered 60% support! You take the average across all 29 unions and it's c. 25% yes vote with a c. 33% turnout.
We don't know whether the people who couldn't be bothered to vote supported the strike or not, they didn't vote. However, that they didn't put pen to paper and vote, suggests to me that, at best, they are ambivalent to strike action, but more likely don't want to be seen to support it.
As for the government complaining about benefit fraud, they do this because it is people taking money out of the system who are not entitled to it. Unlike income tax avoidance, which is people keeping money they are legally entitled to keep (but which I don't justify or agree with), benefit fraud is people, illegally, taking money out of the system that we could use better in it.
F451, true, I retract that part of my comment, but I'd hardly say it was sub-standard stuff, the rest of what I said is true, striking will not help as the cause of the problem is the unsustainability of people living longer but expecting the same payout for no greater input.
