Living in a Union Wonderland

Jack O'Cs fantasy world

One has to wonder what amazing planet all these union people hail from. It must be a wonderful place of plenty where nothing has a limit or has to be accounted for. Unfortunately Ireland is not this planet and while the public sector has taken a modicum of pain the private sector has felt the full chill of the North wind of recession.

I really wonder do the followers of these bearded prophets in the quiet moments when they are by themselves or lying in their beds not realise that the path they are being marched down will be one of disaster. If they maintain their wages at the current levels people will lose their jobs. I personally would feel that it is better to take a pay cut and ensure your fellow worker is still in a job next year.

Unfortunately logic and common sense doesn’t exist in a Union Wonderland. This year the bearded man is not Santa and he will not bear gifts.

Coming soon !!!

What of the hunting, hunter bold?
Brother, the watch was long and cold.
What of the quarry ye went to kill?
Brother, he crops in the jungle still.
Where is the power that made your pride?
Brother, it ebbs from my flank and side.
Where is the haste that ye hurry by?
Brother, I go to my lair to die! – Rudyard Kipling

Yes I have a home for my musings. This has just been set up and I hope to put up some thoughts in the next few days.
