I have seen this type of government tactic in various places over the years. Whenever it works I just shake my head in disgust. "Oh no! They passed a
law saying we can't strike!" If there are really 750,000 public sector workers ready to strike, that would likely cripple the government. I can at
least understand why they would try such a ridiculous tactic, but if you brits aren't willing to stand up no matter what, then law or no law, you are
just pathetic little sheeple. I know that sounds a little harsh towards brits, but it isn't any different here.(canada)
This is what I have never liked about unions. They are an illegitimate secondary government. Makes me sick. They even tax you for crying out loud.
Yes, that's what union dues are. A tax on the already taxed. Don't get me wrong. I like what unions have done for people, but not only should they
never have been needed in the first place, any place that needs them should instead be overthrowing the obviously corrupt regime that refused to
address the needs of it's own people. Adding another level of bureaucracy and corruption is never the answer.
I would love to be a union leader when such legislation is passed. I would call a press conference. I would point out to all that the legislation is
an obvious attempt to enslave the people. You wanna call this strike illegal? Fine. I quit. Let's ALL quit TOGETHER! 750,000 letters of resignation
all at once. Don't stop protesting of course...but freakin QUIT! Do you think the government (or any large company for that matter) will even make it
as far as opening the 50,000th letter before they do an about face? And we are talking about 3 quarters of a million workers here. That's no small
potatoes. If it isn't worth quiting over, then shut up and get back to work you lazy, greedy slobs!
Not long ago there was a big stir here in canada because the big internet providers want to financially rape their customers with metered internet.
Rather than writing petitions and whining to government, I say the masses should have just sucked it up and said "NO MORE!" If we all at once said
"OK! Mr. telecom giant, I am done with you." They would have changed their tune real quick. 35 million canadians saying they want their internet,
phone and television services cut off would definitely be a wake up call. Not only would this devastate these companies, the govt itself quite
literally cant afford what that would do to the country. I give about a week before the govt. mandated unlimited internet, cell coverage and top tier
cable for 6 bucks a month. I doubt that the people where you are will prove any smarter on this than the people where I am, but we all know it would
work. I cant post this video enough. Give it a watch op. Hopefully it will inspire. www.youtube.com...
