Jeremy Corbyn, who joined union members on the picket line outside Euston station, said the Government’s behavior amid the strikes had been “absolutely extraordinary”.

The former Labor leader and now independent MP told the PA news agency he supported the strikes because “the degree of poverty pay within the rail sector is huge, and now the levels of job insecurity have also grown”. .

“This is a strike to ensure there is proper negotiation to resolve this issue, so it’s a message to Grant Shapps that if you can’t help, stay out of the way and allow a deal to be reached between the unions. and train companies or positively support.”

Mr Corbyn said “there are three Labor MPs here on this picket line, and there are certainly across the country”.
