Support the Guardian Strike!

Guido hears that the lowly paid hacks at Guardian Online are balloting on going on strike over low pay. Guido thinks this is one union action well worth supporting.

The fact that the Guardian Online makes a hefty contribution to the £50 million in losses that the company made last year seems to have escaped the hacks. Nevertheless Guido has a cunning idea for Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger* to enable him to turn the the fortunes of the company around at a stroke. Get the Comment is Free bloggers to write the whole thing for nothing. Scab bloggers are the future (and even cheaper).

*Rusbridger himself gets by on a mere £487,000.

UPDATE : Have thought about this and in a moment of Churchillian sacrifice have decided to offer to help. Have emailed Georgina Henry offering to assist:

Georgina,

I know in the past when you asked I said I would never write for Guardian Online. But if this strike ballot goes against you and the hacks go on strike you can count on my assistance, like Churchill during the 1926 General Strike when he edited the British Gazette.

If he can do it, so can Guido.

Proud to Scab,

Guido Fawkes Esq.
