He was away despite the strike date being in the diary for weeks.

Instead Unite sent hard-left activist Onay Kasab.

He has called for the downfall of capitalism and stood for the Socialist Workers’ Party at the 2010 选举.

At an anti-austerity rally last month he yelled: “We will take the action to win our demands.

“No glorious defeats, instead we go all-out to win. Forward to a workers’ economy.”

一个 Tory source said: “Union officials claim to be concerned about patient safety but seem to be more interested in waging political battles and furthering industrial strife by any means necessary.”

The Sun previously revealed that Mr Jarrett-Thorpe suggested that NHS strikes should go ahead even if patients die, 他否认.

Unite said: “This is an intrusion on the private lives of two full-time officers.

“It would be entirely inappropriate to comment.”

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham urged PM 里希·苏纳克 to get involved in the talks and even mooted a 圣诞节 summit.
