Once again London endures a political strike by sheep being led by wolves…
Yesterday, the London Underground was brought to a halt by people who want to see democracy in this country brought to an end. People like Mick Whelan of ASLEF, Manuel Cortez of TSSA, Mick Cash of RMT and the inevitable and omnipresent Len McCluskey of Unite.
These are not reasonable people. IMHO these are not people with the best interests of their members at heart. These are people with their own best interests at heart. People interested in protecting and enhancing their positions of power and influence. People who want a summer of discontent to bring down a properly democratically elected government by means of industrial blackmail. People who want to replace the government with puppets under their control.
These are people whose insensitivity knows no bounds as is evidenced by their announcement of yesterday’s strike on the 10th anniversary of the worst terrorist atrocity this country has ever experienced on home soil and, worse, one perpetrated on the very rail network they have shut down.
Read the social media. Their own members are posting that they don’t agree with strike action which they see as politically motivated and which has no place in the 21st century industrial world. One I read this morning said he was ashamed to be on strike but was too intimidated by the union bully boys to stand up and say so.
This is the sort of behaviour that brought down the Labour Party in Scotland and cost them votes in England. Labour has lost it’s way and had it’s day. It’s a union plaything. The sooner it disappears and takes the union barons with it, the better. It needs to reinvent itself, rediscover it’s values and principle, and assert it’s authority over the Unions. That or be consigned to the dustbin of political history like the Liberal Democrats.
I predicted this would happen and I predict it will continue to happen as the lefties try to bring down the government. It’s Scargillism all over again.
Thatcher stood up to them and won. It’s my fervent hope that this government will do the same.
