“A senior Lib Dem source said: “The Liberal Democrats are fighting tooth and nail in the coalition government to get teachers the pay settlement they deserve for next year.”

A bit like the Fat Cat’s pay rises for the last 5 years have been funded by, Public Sector job cuts, Public Sector pay cuts, unemployed Public Sector workers benefit cuts, etc.
That’s the Coalition Government for you.
