    There is no need to strike in the UK workers paradise - striking is a disesase from states cursed by capitalism comrade PMJ.

    I'd strike if I had a salary, but seeing as I work for myself it's not really very wise. I'd sooner suggest that employees and employers join together in a 'tax strike', withholding taxes until a general election is held.

    By "we" I didn't mean "we" as in "us", I meant "we" as in "them" as in "those who earn a salary" or as in "those who earned a salary but don't now because they've lost their job"

    ...or "anyone who hates Labour"

    You have to admire the French. New parking enforcement in Paris resulted on the parking dept office being burnt down.

    They have the gumption demonstrate en-masse about the government.

    Contrast that with the UK..
    The only thing that would force civil unrest in this country would be lack of news of Jade Goody or KFC going bust
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Yep, and they tend to enjoy a damn good dinner afterwards. You can’t really say they’re wrong.
