A UNION militant has caused a storm after branding as “scabs” soldiers being trained to drive fuel tankers.

Unite branch secretary Donald McDougall wrote on Facebook: “If the Army take action in this dispute, they cannot call it ‘duty’. Be honest, wear the badge ‘scab’ with pride.”

His remarks brought a furious response from other posters. One said: “Your post is an insult to the Armed Forces.” Another added: “You are an absolute disgrace.”

Unite last night distanced itself from McDougall, who works at Honda’s Swindon factory. A spokesman said: “Some of our tanker driver representatives are ex-Army and some have children serving in Afghanistan.”
