Blame yer bloody leader for that one Arfer Scargill - the guy who furthered the saying "I'm alright Jack I'm inboard!"

he got paid whilst all his members starved! clever little git!

Unlike the guy who's just died of a heart attack, no doubt brought upon him by his worry for his lads and lasses! what gicant of a man he was! Good Old (not so old actually) Bob Crow! Rail and Maritime Transport Union! the last of the real unions!

made up of the remnants of the National Union of Seamen and the National Union of Railwaymen -came together and became a big union looking after it people - all its people! the NUM was like them once, then they voted Scargill in, probably rigged but he still got in and ruined them! Made hissel a fortune tho'

Seems fair after all he did upset sucessive governments on a regular basis, now anybody who can do that has my vote........when I was in that union he did.......one of the few railwaymen I actually liked! He always stood by his people and got the best deal he could for them, which should be what a union man should be about......many are not, they tend to get corrupted easily! There again thats what most bosses are about, sheer bloody corruption!

In some ways Mick you are right and in others so far off the mark you are in another world! the old style Labour party YES but since Phony Blur took over they have become the biggest bunch of lying, incomptent, cheating, penny piching, stealing, self interested bunch of morons the world of government in this country has ever known - and thats their good points!

Not for nothing are they now known as the Liebour Party because thats their main stock in trade! But never fear "incompetents un-naminous" led by Compo and Clegg are catching up fast!

so thats' yer choice Blue 5h1t or Red 5h1t! Some choice!
