Civil Service set for 5th November Strike

Guido is truly humbled and honoured that the civil service is set to vote to strike in my honour on 5th November. Much better than just bonfires. I suggest the striking mob should lay siege to Parliament and ….. no must not get carried away… remember, remember. But why only one day? Why don’t you administrators, adjudicators, archivists, auditors, bureaucrats, censors, census takers, contingency co-ordinators, government actuaries, inspectors, monitors, officers, ombudsmen, paymasters, planners, public guardians, racial equality commissioners, registrars, statisticians, regional co-ordinators, regulators, rural payments agents, tax collectors, valuers and vehicle certifiers strike for longer? Is your cause not just? Strike I say, strike for as long as it takes. Bring the country to its knees! See if the country copes without you, eh?

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
