  • REBECCA LONG BAILEY SLAMS THE GOVERNMENT FOR FAILING TO OFFER THOMAS COOK A BAIL-OUT

    The Labour Party

    The Salford & Eccles MP took to Twitter to vent her opinions on the Governments failure to prevent the collapse of Thomas Cook after they refused a £200m tax payer funded bail-out of the beleaguered company.

    She branded the Governments decision not to step in as "disgraceful" as the travel company was forced to close after 178 years when crisis talks broke down leaving holidays makers stranded and workers now facing having to find new jobs.

    However, some were quick to respond by pointing out that the investment would not have solved the companies woes and would only have delayed what they say would have been an eventual collapse. Considering that the companies debts were some £1.7 billion then some commentators were quick to point out that it would have been like applying a sticky plaster to bullet wound.

    The companies failure has led to the closure of Thomas Cook stores across the country with the store on Salford Precinct left vacant and shuttered this morning.

    As ever the people of Salford stepped in to offer their help with local hair stylists 'Fibre Hair & Beauty' based at the Lowry making the lovely heartfelt offer of a free cut and blow-dry to any ex Thomas Cook employee from the Salford Shopping Centre store who could show a valid ID or Payslip.

    The idea being to help them look the part when attending future job interviews and to help relieve the financial burden.

    An absolutely fantastic gesture.

    Meanwhile MP's have called for an investigation after it was revealed that company directors had given themselves huge bonuses prior to the collapse.
