    The striking union men and women have a new mantra. They refuse to join the race to the bottom. I’m proud to say I started that race to the bottom.

    The Simon Cowell Prize for manipulation more like.

  21. 21

    If the pin number was written on a piece of tissue and this was still legible, then it is probable that no bodily fluids were exchanged.

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    The Tories are out to rob the poor to pay the rich. They want to cut the pensions of millions of working class people to fill the hole left after the bank ­bailouts. Workers will be left to grow old in poverty while bankers still live the …high life on their obscene bonuses. Workers are told they will have to work longer, pay more and receive less when they do finally retire. Yet none of the super-rich public schoolboys who dominate the Tory-Lib Dem cabinet will have to worry about their old age. We won’t let them get away with it. They are facing a huge fightback. This week 750,000 public sector workers have come together in a magnificent show of strength to tell the Tories to back off. The NUT and ATL teachers’ unions, alongside the civil service PCS union and a section of the UCU lecturers’ union were set to join the national one-day strike this Thursday. Their strike is a beacon of hope for millions who want to see the Tories beaten. Thousands of council workers were also set to join the fight on 30 June. And across the country workers, ­students and activists have organised solidarity with the strikers. People have seen the wave of struggles across Europe, the general strikes in Greece and the city occupations in Spain. They are longing for a bit of that struggle here in Britain. This week is just the beginning. The unity that has been forged across the working class can be the basis for even greater mass strikes in the autumn. Our greatest strength is our unity. The Tories are terrified of the prospect of millions of workers taking action together. They want to divide us and make us blame each other for poverty, low pay and unemployment. We can’t let them get away with it. That’s why every trade unionist and activist must go all-out to build on this week’s strikes for the sort of action in the autumn that can stop the Tories’ attacks—and bring this government down

    Poverty,low pay and unemployment….Labour should have done something about that.They had enough fucking time.
    Watch house prices go up by 5 times national average earnings.That is what they did and that is where the fucking bailout money went to pay for it.

    misterned says:

    Brown doubled the income tax on the poorest workers, and if they had opted out of SERPS, he halved their pensions too.

    The very modest value of my pension pot was slashed by labour.

    The tories wanting the over-paid, over-protected and over stuffed state-sector to only give a tiny bit more shows the tories to actually be far more working-class-friendly than labour were when in power.

    I cannot understand why lefties despise the poor and the working class so much.

    I have absolutely ZERO agreement, concern or sympathy for these pampered and spoiled strikers.

    “Guido thought there were funnier ones, but it’s the will of the people”,

    which sums up the problem of mob-rule (in Greek, democracy).

    What a ferkin’ shambolic way to run anything!

    The funniest should win a funny contest.

    The ablest should win an able contest.

    The baddest should win a bad contest, etc.

    You’re a bloody relativist, man: such things are not decided by percentages.

    To be fair, you also think Rich and Mark are funny.
