- George Osborne - Iran - Phone-hacking scandal - strike - UK
'Osborne has lifted the veil from the nasty party and declared class war'
Britain's public sector strike dominates our press review today - as the right-wing papers rage against supposedly parasitic public sector workers, and on the left the papers defend the right to strike. We also look at former NOTW journalist Paul McMullan's warts-and-all testimony to the Leveson inquiry yesterday.
The Guardian calls his autumn statement nakedly regressive - saying it will hit the poorest hardest, while the Independent talks to teachers, care workers and hospital staff who will be manning picket lines today.
The Independent's also looking at how relations between Iran and the UK got this bad, while the Guardian pulls out Paul McMullan's choicest quotes from the Leveson inquiry - and argues it's a good thing someone was finally honest about what goes on in tabloid newsrooms.
