It is an absolute pleasure to see unelected Union officials threatening "poll tax" riots if spending cuts in the public sector go ahead. "The workers won't stand for it, the disadvantaged won't stand for it, the vulnerable, the weak, the excluded, none of them will stand for it" says a six figure salaried thug who extracts money by menaces every week as he tries to threaten some other six figure salaried thugs in Government who extract money from everyone under threat of violence and imprisonment every week.
The Mafias are threatening each other over who gets to steal our money.
I hope the masses do rise up. They'd be right to. Why are we being expected - nay, forced under threat of violence to hand over the same money for public services that will be at least 25% less than under a Socialist Junta? Why are union "dues" not being cut by the same 25% to reflect the new order?
The answer is of course to drop public services by 25%, drop income tax by 25%, cut bureaucracy by 25% and remove 25% of the insane laws we are forced to live under by the Mafias of the state in their guise as "Government of the people".
Me? I'd settle for 90% less government, as long as I'm charged 90% less for it. The tens of thousands I'd save every year would buy me the best healthcare, life insurance and education the world has to offer.
So I am happy to stand with the Unions on this one, bruvvers, sisters, comrades. How dare they cut public services yet keep sending us the same bill?
