The country is facing ‘challenges’ which the Government is tackling in an orderly manner. It supported individuals, businesses, and crucially the NHS during the pandemic, well beyond what anyone expected or in many cases deserved. We now face financial, food and fuel poverty, and a cost-of-living crises due to Russia’s war in Ukraine, when reserves are rock bottom.
It is known that Whitehall Civil Servants run rough shod over ministers, and many still work from home. They are underperforming on delivering passports, driving licenses, or supporting the Home Secretary in her bid to stop traffickers sending immigrants across the English Channel. Now, to prove they are super-efficient, they are considering going on strike!
Individually elephants can be charming, intelligent, and gently, but when gathered in a herd, instinct can make them unreliable, unhelpful, and often dangerous. Ditto civil servants.
Boris clearly recognises that he cannot trust Macron as far as he can throw him. The so called ‘olive branch’ in the shape of a ‘European political community’, is certainly not something to be considered. Power hungry ‘Napoleon’ Macron despises the British, Boris in particular. He has already made clear that he would only consider the UK joining ‘his gang’ once a new PM is appointed. Hang in there Boris!
University lecturers should be ‘feeding’ young minds not striking. Union barons should be ensuring their members work to keep the ‘wheels’ of industry and transport running smoothly. The economy is fragile, but these dissidents are hell bent on bringing the country to a standstill, resulting in delays for students’ graduations, empty supermarket shelves, shutdowns on railways impacting on supply chains, and petrol stations running dry.
Farmers along with essential workers do not strike and never will. We produce food to feed the nation, care for our livestock, and preserve and maintain the countryside.
It is time as Lord Sugar put it, “for everyone to get off their lazy backsides”, or as Norman Tebbit would say, “get on your bike”. We must pull our weight and work for Britain not against it and demonstrate we all care for our country and our children’s future.
Unions threatening strike action causing the ‘biggest disruption since the General Strike in 1926’, is pathetic and ill timed. One can only hope that sanity prevails, and union members disregard the orders from overpaid, overpromoted, privileged Marxist barons, who disregard the consequences of their actions upon hard working men and women of this country.
