I was watching the BBC news earlier, and saw reports that some are not as happy with the response to the effects of the superstorm designated
"Sandy", as they could be. A woman standing in the street telling the official she was speaking to, and of course the camera, that she was
responsible for a few dozen OAPs, who need heat, and will freeze without it. Another complaining that she cannot begin to clear up her broken home,
without power or effective generators being provided.
I say to these people, it is obvious who you need to speak to. It is obvious where your ire must be aimed. Do not aim it at your government, your
police force, your local council, or your local volunteer force. Aim your complaints at those unions which are preventing professional utility
installers from turning up, and doing what needs to be done to replace damaged powerlines, phone lines, water and gas mains, fixing broken stretches
of your roads.
I am not saying drop the hammer on the unions in general, but I am saying if you want your homes and towns bought back from the brink of total
destruction, then make sure those unions which are operating support schemes in your area, are doing so with YOU in mind, and not thier thrice damned
pride, or indeed thier greed.
To members in the area, I would say do your research, and make sure that your friends and neighbors know the score on this issue. With power and comms
down over large swathes of the affected region, it is important that those who have access to this information, distribute it to everyone who ought to
have it. Compile dossiers, print pamphlets, get the damned word out, and prevent this abomination from slowing the progress of the clean up effort.
