Strike? What Strike?

200,000 civil servants apparently joined picket lines to protest over job cuts, in their first national strike for 11 years. The Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union said the strike action against government plans to axe more than 100,000 jobs had been a “huge success” forcing the closure of museums, disrupting driving tests, job centres, benefit offices and customs. He said: “The British Museum and the Science Museum have been closed and ports of entry have been affected.”

So the unions stopped some kids seeing steam engines at the Science Museum. Well done brothers and sisters. Ronald Reagan responded to an air traffic controllers strike by sacking the lot of them for breach of contract. Here is our chance to get rid of a burden on the taxpayers – sack the lot of ’em. Driving tests can be outsourced to the British School of Motoring, job centres and benefit offices don’t need replacing at all and the customs officers can be dispensed with by legalising drugs and the abolition of alcohol duty. We can but dream…. Did anyone actually notice the strike? Lets hope they strike for the rest of the year.

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
