Looks like we will be pulling on our fireman's boots again. The lazy bastards are going on strike because they object to modernisation! I would have thought that cutting out all the dross would be a good move? And, as they got a bigger pay rise than us, again, you would have though that they could manage a year without spending too long on their arses. So, we have to show that we can do their jobs, and ours. And watch for the fuel strike, which some sections of the media seem quite keen to generate. Can we expect a Foot and Mouth episode this year, just so Princess Tony can keep us on our toes (and keep him in his overpaid job?) They might let us off that one, as we are undergoing cuts and filling jobs that this government gets us into.
