Those within the union movement say Sally McManus has been a breath of fresh air because she, too, says exactly what she thinks. She speaks without equivocation, without weighing up first how people might use it against her. She doesn’t care what the conservative media says, either.

She’s a democratic socialist, she says, not a Marxist. She wants to change the rules within the system. As broken as it is, she believes in it, and is convinced it can be reformed.

As a university student she might have thought that capitalism had failed, that there was a need for “some big uprising”. She’s softened.

“I can see that could also very well lead to fascism,” she says. “There’s big dangers in that, and there’s no reason why our collective voice, our governments [can’t work] – they are our democracy.

“That should be adequate enough to tame corporate power.” She laughs. “I’m willing to try that for as long as possible.”
