Lesser parasites to go on strike

Those who did not experience the 60s and 70s may not appreciate that most of the endless series of strikes that took place were the result of competition among the trades unions for membership. They're still at it: read this article and weep. 'Workers' Liberty: for International Working Class Solidarity and Socialism', forsooth.
It is claimed that the public will not understand our taking action. To the extent that this is true, it is because the public has been fed a steady diet of information about the financial arrangements, bonus payments, gold-plated pensions and golden parachutes of senior civil servants. The reality for the vast majority of us is very different. We must all now take action to defend our terms and conditions. All out on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 March!
So the largest of five - count 'em, five - squabbling unions is to go on strike, against the other four. It must be against them, because it will not affect the rest of us in the slightest.

Surely it is not beyond the competence of even our pathetic politicians to use this pseudo class war within the Apparat to level the Mandarins down.
