Clueless government + petty minded Unions

The news is full of mass strikes “the like of which we have not seen since the 1926 General Strike”.

For the want of some honesty & simple common sense we are all going to be in the doodoo again. I refer you to my last post on the 6th June 2011.

I simply despair of the petty mindedness of both the Unions and the hubris* displayed by all our party politicians.

The solution is painful but obvious! You, the government, must let the bad banks fail, the hedge funds must “take a haircut” and the rest of the solution is sharing out the financial pain fairly (see my post 6th June 2011)!

* ‘hubris’  : insolent, contemptuous disregard (‘we know best, trust us we’re politicians’; ‘calm down dear’ etc.)
