They never learn.......

According to the Tellytubbygraph, a number of public sector Union leaders are objecting to the inevitable public sector cuts. Said leaders appear to be very dense because they still haven't worked out that there's no more money left in the public purse. Even the moths have starved to death.

We saw the same thing back in the late 70's and the consequences are as predictable as a sunrise. Rubbish rotting in the streets, what's left of the Army fighting fires with antiquated equipment, bodies unburied, hospital patients untreated, and freezing pensioners. I was working in the UK's industrial Midlands at the time and it wasn't pretty. Now I'm growing ever more uneasy about my forthcoming trip to the UK. Because I remember the Winter of Discontent.
