Unions want a ban on high heels at work

#1
An assortment of lefties, treehuggers, anarchists, Marxists and general troublemakers called the Trades Union Congress are having their annual get-together in Liverpool this week.

High on the agenda is the banning of women wearing high heels in the work-place. Apparently this is sexist as it puts women who wear flat shoes (that is Labour supporters) at a disadvantage. This is bad news for lecherous squaddies who love a good ogle at the tottie!

These ********* should concentrate their efforts on something more useful like throwing themselves into the River Mersey.

No, no no. This can't be allowed to happen, the only excitement I get these days is crawing under desks on the premise of fixing PC's to ogle at legs encased in nylon and high heels.

Damn it accounts needs to be re-cabled now.

Is there nothing more important for these muppets to talk about?
As far as I am aware no woman in obligd to wear high heels at work? Entirely a matter of choice.
Does his not create a disadvantage for all those short arsed women out there who prefer to look a little taller by wearing heels?

Utter bollox, like this is an important problem in this scountry today

I was just reading this bollocks about these fcukwits as well

Mobiles should be restricted to prevent adults using cameras to take pictures of toddlers, it was claimed.

Voice, a union representing 30,000 teachers and nursery staff across the UK, said a “no mobiles” rule was needed to assure parents that children were safe in early years care.

Tricia Pritchard, the union’s senior childcare officer, said: “We are concerned that mobile phones with integrated cameras enable anyone to take photographs without the knowledge of those being photographed. Many mobiles have sophisticated cameras and are small enough to hide in the palm of a hand, enabling users to take high quality photographs which can then be uploaded to the Internet or sent to other people in a matter of minutes.

“A 'no mobiles' rule would protect children, prevent accusations against staff and reassure parents. Even a photograph taken spontaneously without thinking for purely innocent reasons could fall into the wrong hands or arouse the suspicion of colleagues or sent to other people in a matter of minutes.

The union – previously known as the Professional Association of Teachers – said one nursery had already moved lockers away from the nursery area to that staff can no longer hear their mobiles when they ring.
Now I'm not a parent but those of you that are do you need re-assuring that teachers are not taking pictures of your kids at nursery?

This is another part of the movement designed to label everyone as a paedophile, unless they can prove otherwise. The regs requiring enhanced checks on anything to do with kids -including giving lifts to school-are draconian and unnecessary. As a grandparent I am prohibited from a lot of my grandkids activities. Or would be, were it not for the fact that their school has sensible teachers and staff who know me and other parents and therefore allow us access to activities.

If nursery staff (they are not teachers) are meant to be looking after my kids why do they need to have a mobile in the classroom? I don't need assurance. I need to know that the persons in sole charge of my children for 8 hours a day are competent and up to the job. I don't need any of the shit that labour have introduced since 1997 and would welcome a repeal of everything they have done.

By that logic the enforced wearing of high heeled shoes would create the same even playing field.

Will our hirsute comrades be demanding a ban on the burkha as it is demeaning to woman as well?

No.....thought not. :roll:

We will all be walking to work in our grey overalls and black pumps, well shuffleing along to the dole office, except of course the union officials and their mates who will have the chauffer driven cars, someone has to be in charge!

The TUC are an irrelevancy in the modern world. Just ignore the feckers and let them get on with their real job - having a couple of strikes to ensure labour and the rest of the socialists get consigned to the dustbin of history at the next General Election!

Delegates at the TUC Congress will vote on a call to boycott Israeli goods and ban the importation of products from "illegal Israeli settlements".

The motion has been put forward by the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) and it is supported by Unite and Unison.

Union leaders were involved in a heated debate on Tuesday before deciding to back the move.
The latest from the TUC. :roll:

Harriet Hatperson will be on to this in minutes few.

According to Quentin Letts the only thing keeping delegates awake at the TUC conference was a Guardian girlie walking up and down the aisles in high heels.

Talk about living in the past,now they are on about pirates, why, we have no merchant ships, the RFA is just about all the civilean crewed ships on the British register

Call me a silly old sod, but one would have thought that the Fire Brigades' Union would be more concerned with the impending closure of Stations in Warwickshire and Murkey-side's decision to axe 120 fire-fighters as opposed to boycotting melons and avocadoes grown by the Red Sea Pedestrians...

1, 2, 3... SILLY!

Ooh! Ooh! Anyone see the connection? No to "melons", no to "high-heels"... Humm... Anyone else get the whiff of poo nfused with durex?

Do the unions ever wonder why their membership is so low these days? Bizarre stuff that is an irrevelance to anyone in the real world. You'd think that on a day where it's emerged unemployment is at it's highest for 15 years the unions would have more pressing issues else to discuss :?
