We know the government are panic striken. How?

Because their paid trolls are hitting it heavy on social media. However, they are not the brightest are they?

And we know their propaganda and lies are working because many others on social media have succumbed and are so gullible.

Thus unfortunately, a reminder is needed….PLEASE STOP HAVING A GO AT PEOPLE GOING ON STRIKE. I have seen it with very informed people, I have seen it on Facebook, Twitter, even my own family members. The common response is something like this:

“I agree and support the reasons why (whoever it is) are going on strike, but they should express their feelings a different way. They should not inconvenience the public” etc…”

OK, if someone is going on strike it is because it is the LAST RESORT. No one wants to go on strike-they lose wages. They don’t like inconveniencing others. The strike is happening because the bosses/government are refusing to even talk (3+ years up until recently re RMT strikes), offering massive pay cuts in real terms, while seeing the very same bosses get pay rises and/or bonuses.

So, I ask those criticising not to be selfish-because that absolutely is what you are doing if you take a second to think about it-and if you don’t like the strikes, WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?! If people cannot afford to live on the wages they are on, and are being asked to take a real terms pay cut as inflation soars (caused in no small part by the rampant profiteering of said bosses!!!), I ask again WHAT. IS. THE. ALTERNATIVE?

I have heard intelligent family members, who even used to be Union reps, saying this. So, I asked them what I ask again now, with no apologies for repeating it….WHAT. IS. THE. ALTERNATIVE?! Just shut up and accept (often) being on lower wages than in 2007, with costs/inflation massively increased on top of that? Because you don’t like the temporary inconvenience-THAT OFTEN DOESN’T EVEN AFFECT YOU ANYWAY!!, despite advanced warning and a clear explanation as to why there is literally no other choice?!

To a person, there has NEVER been an answer to WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE. Aparr from “Stop trying to be clever…stop trying to be a politician….I don’t know, but the answer isn’t this (strikes)” etc etc.

How about asking WHY they are in strike? WHY is no one focusing on the pay of the bosses, and instead focusing on the workers? If it is jealously because you are not in a union and/or not getting a pay rise, then your ‘enemies’ are the exact same people as those you are condemning!!! NOT the people striking! It’s the same argument re benefits ‘cheats’. No one very focused on the bankers (have you seen Banker’s Street? No, me neither…but I bet you’ve seen Benefits Streets programmes?). There are benefits cheats-mainly those making millions and billion in profit and STILL being subsidised with OUR public money.

The analogy I always use is this situation is like the captain of the Titanic asking everyone to run to one side of the ship and put their fingers in the holes where some water is coming in, then ignoring the big f**k off iceberg-shaped hole at the other end…then wondering why the ship is sinking.

BACK THE STRIKERS. BLAME THE REASONS THEY HAVE TO STRIKE. WHY THE F**K ARE WE BLAMING THOSE MOST AFFECTED, AND GIVING A FREE PASS TO THOSE CAUSING IT?! THOSE DOING SO ARE LITERALLY DOING THE DIVIDE AND CONQUER JOB OF THOSE IN POWER CAUSING THIS!!! AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT….THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU, AND ME, AND US.

They have convinced you that the enemy is you with another name. They have convinced people that to expect the 5th/6th richest country on earth, where the top few percent have doubled their wealth in this period, cannot afford to fund the basics for society. That we cannot afford pay rises, unless you are rich and/or a boss, while then handing out billions in public money to their mates.

That we have hundreds of thousands homeless people, millions using foodbanks (and turning down some food because they cannot afford to cook it!), people literally freezing to deaths in their homes or on the streets, record suicide rates, record low wages and life expectancy going into reverse for the first time ever…in the 5th/6th richest country on earth while record profits are paid to the richest…is absolutely, genuinely insane. That we are told, with many actually believing this Bull Shit, we are correct to blame those least at fault for this is absolutely, genuinely insane.

IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF THOSE ON STRIKE. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF MIGRANTS, REFUGEES OR ASYLUM SEEKERS. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF PEOPLE ON BENEFITS. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE DISABLED. IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE UNEMPLOYED. SO, FFS, PLEASE STOP BEING A PAWN IN THE GAME OF YOUR OWN OPPRESSORS. THOSE ON STRIKE DO SO FOR ALL OF US. ALL OF US. BACK THEM. ALWAYS.

SOLIDARITY ✊❤️
