The Strike

This is going round on Facebook:

'Remember when Teachers, Civil Servants, Policemen, Ambulance staff, Nurses, Midwives, Doctors and Firemen crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax? No, me neither. We need to support the workers against the (UK) government's latest attack on pensions and public sector workers. And before anyone says it, yes, it's sh*t for people in the private sector too. That's because your rights have already been screwed around with in the name of "competition" and "flexibility".'

Hard to disagree with.

I have volunteered for duty at the customs desk at Heathrow where my old chum Lord Shady Dealings will be flying in on the 3 o`clock flight from Wonga Wonga.I will of course make sure he is usherd straight through without the incovenience of a search.

Clifford, are you an example of the NHS help in the community alleged success because you might need to up your free medication.
You've gone past the rambling stage so perhaps you ought to be potted.

Clifford, I have just come back from a fine turn out at the Brighton rally of Unions, I don't call 10,000 people a damp sqib, Cameron is just in denial.
We also had lots of support from the people watching from the street.
I did talk to several coppers today and explained that we were also helping them to keep their pensions for which they said "thank you".
MPs are exempt from this bill even though their pensions at final salery will be twice that of a teacher, and the pension secretary will get £43,000 in oension at retirement out of public funds.

I think public opinion is against the strikes. Striking is soooo 1970s - and look where that ended up. (Clue: the Socialist Workers Party did not sweep the country).
My partner works for the NHS. She says that all her colleagues agree that it ain't working and will be privatised.
We are broke, everyone. We have been paying oourselves too much for too long.
The Welfare Stare is history. designed for the 1940s - no longer applicable.
I don't think today's strikers will get any pensions at all, let alone reduced ones. Darker days are coming. This isn't the 1970s. Nor is it the 1930s.
It's even worse. It's Apocalyse now, and even Planets Lewes and Brighton will have to return to earth.

That really showed them today didn't it! 2,000,000 on strike and the country's border control caught more 'illegals' and the rest of the public sector didn't do too badly either.
Revised estimate in order then? A further 1,500,000 jobs not really needed in the private sector............that really showed 'em!
P.s. THe union bosess still got paid.

Oops, a typo bastian, thanks for pointing it out
It should read : Revised estimate in order then? A further 1,500,000 jobs not really needed in the PUBLIC sector............that really showed 'em!
p.s. When is your next unpaid day off?

Vulture is of course correct - the situation is far worse than we could possibly fear to imagine. Tough times are ahead and striking will not save your jobs, in fact it's likely to cost more jobs. Pensions is the LAST thing you should be worrying about.

Umm.. why is that Dingo? Becuase I don't agree with your point of view or in because somwhere in the deepest recess of your mind you fear that I might be right? Do you have a more intelligent comment to make or only insults?
