Look at the Scottish capital and you’ll get a glimpse of the horror and hell militant unions soon want to unleash on the rest of the country.

Bins are overflowing and litter is piling high on the streets five days into a 12-day strike by binmen, even though they’d received a five percent pay offer.

But politicians in the rest of the country, enjoying the humiliation being heaped on Scheming Nicola Sturgeon, should not be resting easy tonight.

Because it’s this sort of chaos and carnage likely to be unleashed on the entire country during a new winter of discontent as unions move forward with plans to paralyse the country in a new general strike.

Just listen to Mick Lynch on GB News and you’ll see where this is heading.

And speaking in 2019, the General Secretary of Unite, Sharon Graham, laid out her plan for how the unions could jointly hold the country to ransom.

So it’s no surprise that, according to The Daily Telegraph’s Christopher Hope today, Westminster is preparing for a cross-Government strike by public sector unions.

And, make no mistake, this is a political move designed to paralyse the new Prime Minister.

I mean, the plan is for the strikes to be announced during next month’s Labour Party conference for maximum impact.

The result could see large parts of the civil service shut down in the run-up to Christmas and the dark days of January and February, as energy bills skyrocket.

Hope says the “scale of the unrest could approach that of the general strike from 1926 when millions of workers went on strike for nine days”.

And a senior Government source added: “I don’t think Rishi or Liz are ready for what they are facing. We are looking at the paralysis of the country."

Liz Truss today pledged to be “bold” and “different” as PM to tackle the scale of our economic crisis.

But the headwinds buffeting her are going to be historically unprecedented.

She must stand up to the unions and crush the strike action like Thatcher or risk socialism being ushered back to Britain in the form of Labour/SNP/Lib Dem/Green coalition that would be disastrous for our future.
