    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.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
