    Rank and file mandated officers, not Pilgrims says:

    He’s correct.

    Full time union ‘reps’ cook up deals with the bosses and almost never consult members. When they do it’s to tell everyone what a great deal they’ve extracted against the odds. Bullsh*t.

    Does that mean that unions should stop claiming public handouts from the Union Modernisation Fund?

    Some Geezer wot knows who's getting a sweet deal says:

    Fee-shifting– unions got that brilliant idea from the shysters. “Don’t worry, it won’t cost you a thing. When all’s said and done the other side will pay my fee, it’s built into the amount of damages, don’t you know.” Which translates to, “Don’t worry, you’re not paying for me to organise, the public will do that.”

    The fallacy, of course, being that as litigiousness increases, prices of goods and services increase to absorb the cost of higher liability insurance (assuming it’s available.) Likewise their union members may not be paying Pilgrims directly, but every public sector worker pays taxes which go to pay a Pilgrim in another agency, no? All right, so they don’t pay in full (the public will take up the slack), but they’re not immune.

    The Piper has this annoying habit– he demands to be paid.

Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann on Cameron’s refusal to pay the £1.7 billion EU bill by December 1st:

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
