Go on then!

Apparently the Civil Service are threatening to go on strike...
The Public and Commercial Services union has warned of a civil service general strike after its national executive unanimously backed plans for industrial action.

Is there any danger of making the strike permanent? No?

Well, how about Cameron grows some testicles and sacks the fucking lot of you? Because I am pretty sure that most of us—those of us who pay for them—simply won't give a shit when the collection of Hooray Henrys and low-grade Letitias go on strike.
General Secretary Mark Serwotka said: "At least half a million people marched for the alternative on 26 March, and now we are saying we must be prepared to strike for the alternative."

Well, the "alternative" is a world without you bastards—and I welcome it.

As I said, sack the top three grades at least.

Failing that, we should sack every single one of them...

Well this junior grade civil servant is telling Serwotka to go and kiss my arse.

His is a nasty, grubby union who think that the public has a magic money tree and that if the status quo is not preserved, then the world will stop turning.

Of course the cuts are being made in all the wrong places, but that's a different story.

Serwotka could well come a cropper. He needs to beware the example of the Essex firefighters...

What the PCSU do not realise is that they are striking AGAINST "the alternative", and a pretty flimsy version of it at that.

If they want a proper "alternative" come try our (Libertarian) apples!

Regardless, a disagreement about general policy moves is hardly justification for strike action!

I too hope they all strike because I don't think much will change as a consequence. And as the link regarding Essex firefighters shows, the strike will clearly show how expensive and irrelevant are most public sector jobs.
If only we had a prime minister who would do a Ronald Reagan (air traffic controllers, remember?).

I really am hoping for a prolonged as in months strike. Perhaps then enough people outside of state employment will realise there really is no need for the majority of the civil service to exist.

Now if only they can convince those who work for council contractors to join them...

I couldn't agree more William. I suspect you could quite easily sack 70% of the public sector management and 100% of "diversity co-ordinators" etc without an impact on the front line. The problem is, that unless an outside agency does this housecleaning, the management across the public sector will hold onto their non-jobs and the front line people who actual DO something will loose their jobs.

Don't these loons know we're at least a trillion pounds in debt?

If they all go on strike.
Who will hassle and lie to me?

I dont want to sound extreme but I would hang the bastards I hate them so much .
Especially the Department against Transport .

Serwotka is simply lying. The largest estimates for th march were around 500,000. The more reasonable, less partial estimates were between 1 and 200,000

I thought they had already been out on strike.Try ringing the DWP the fucking phone rings for a minimum of 20 mins before some inarticulate form filling fuckpig deigns to spend the time, that I've spent over 40 years paying for, talking to you as if you were something on the bottom of their shoe
