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.
