Remember a thread a short while ago where we talked about Broon and Zanu preaching wage restraint to slow down inflation . . . Well, I can find the thread, but the gist of it was that Broon was saying that employers should resist wage increase pressures to keep the UK inflation down. I commented at the time that it was all well and good that toe-rag and his party saying that, but the truth was that inflation was REALLY getting rather a lot, and peoples wages HAD to go up to keep up with his taxes, fuel prices, gas prices, electric prices, food prices etc etc etc. I said that it would be the civil service that went on strike in ever increasing numbers, ie: HIS pet unions. The debate centred around the issue of 'who owns the Labliar Party . . . the executive, or the Unions who bailed them out of the cash-for-honours farce, and thus prevented the whole party being made bankrupt. My suggestion was that he'd have the choice of a: let the party go bust and thus be personally liable for a proportion of its debts as it went down (all executive members are guarantors of the party debts), or he'd do whatever it took to kiss the unions collective arrses to save the party from bankruptcy. Well, it appears he's doing neither at this moment in time. He's not giving into civil service wage demands, and the party ain't bankrupt yet . . . . Mind you, the predicted strikes look like they are starting . . . . The Beeb I'm now asking for a vote: which way will he jump?
