The League of Extraordinary Ungentlemen

All changed, changed utterly: A terrible reality is born.

Well after the spectacle of the Government being forced by severely negative public opinion to turn down the ill-thought and farcical offer of the 12 unpaid days of Christmas carol by the bearded combined choir of the ICTU the unions are now revolting.

What makes me laugh is the irony of the likes of David Begg blaming the current crisis on the bankers, politicians and the private sector alone. He was on the board of the Central Bank the very organisation that is supposed to oversee the whole Irish Banking industry. Its an organisation that failed to do its job. Sure all these union leaders have had their snouts firmly in the trough of partnership, feeding side by side with the very pariahs that they now vilify (the bankers, private sector leaders and the politicians).

They also claim to represent the low paid workers of the Public Service but they are just using these people. The new blood in the Public Service is the future of the country and they are being held down due to a service that is based in the Victorian Age that protects the status quo that seems to penalise any innovation or enterprise at all. Basically at odds with the image that we have projected abroad of a country that is an innovator and flexible. They are protecting the lazy.

I see the GRA are polling their members to get a mandate to strike. This action is against the law. What I want to know now is do we have to set up Militias to protect our properties and families if the Gardai are going to refuse to do their jobs.

Finally a message to our so called Government, you have to stay the course now. Face these unions down, if you waver then we are all in trouble both private and public sector.
