Shouldn't Union Pilgrims be taxed as a benefit in kind ?

The argument for taxpayers funding left wing Union officials to sit at desks full time and do what Unions do is that they help the smooth running of the organisation by faciltating worker demands etc.

So a benefit eh ?

Well when its private health insurance or other perks we get taxed on it. Shouldn't members of Unions in govt departments that have tax payer funded pilgrims be taxed on the benefit of having them also ?

Anyone ( who isn't an anonymous blogger ) want to as HMRC about this. ( Though hold on I bet they have pilgrims also -- ah its all becoming clearer now... )

It refers to Union representatives funded by public bodies. Specifically Guido Fawkes run in with Jane Pilgrim a Unison rep over at St George’s Hospital Trust in Tooting.
