My word, public sector workers really are the all-singing, all-dancing thieving scum of the earth, aren’t they.
750,000 of the bastards out on strike on June 30th – again. All because the public sector thinks it deserves the right to be insulated from economic conditions. That it has the right – unbelievably – to dip its hands into someone else’s pocket, every year, because it thinks its members are somehow “special”. For special, read: better. They honestly believe – work-dodging, early-retiring, disability-benefit-seeking all of them – that they shouldn’t be subject to basic rules of society. That they should somehow float above it all, protected from reality, and taking money out of the economy they never created in the first place. Just because they work for a jobsworth-employing local council instead of an enterprising private company.
I’ve tried to hold back on this, but there’s no fight left in me. Public sector unions, you are scum. Andy “Serwotka”, you are scum. The 32% or so of his union that actually bothered to vote (if they were in favour of striking): you are scum. Merrily taking money out of the taxpayer’s pocket, never comprehending that all that money has to come from somewhere. To me, you’re thieving scum; to a large number of private sector workers, you’re thieving scum; to an ever-larger percentage of the British taxpaying public (admittedly, a smaller class these days) you’re thieving scum. Fortunately, in the next difficult couple of decades, you’re going to realise just what that means.
