Striking Thoughts

There is one group of public sector workers with gold plated pensions who don’t seem to be suffering. If “we are all in it together” maybe the government should take a look at their pension entitlements, which will make private sector workers drool with envy. Compare these two average pensions within the public sector; after a career of risking his life for his country a soldier gets a £7,987 pension, after a life of wind-baggery combined with drinking in subsidised bars and fiddling expenses the average MP gets a £21,364 pension. If they become Ministers the sky is the limit. Multi-millionaire John Prescott’s pension pot has £1.5 million in it. Gold plating at an unaffordable level.

For those in the private sector who had their pensions disastrously raided by Gordon Brown, wrecking Britain’s private pension system, today’s strikes might leave them wondering if they should have gone on strike in protest at his 1997 stealth tax raid. Taxes that Gordon used to splurge on the now striking public sector. Small businesses don’t go on strike, usually owner-run or family businesses, staffed by people who are friends and family, who would they strike against? Today is the last day of the month, many small business owners will be struggling to making enough money to cover the payroll, totting up the VAT they collect for the government and the taxes they have to pay for merely employing people. Imagine if they, the taxpaying backbone of the economy, went on a taxpayers’ strike. It could lead to great changes

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
