Oh yeah? Are you sure that poor taking from the rich is better than rich taking from the poor? Good job you didn't take silk isn't it?
So if a wretched poor bugger breaks in to steal my goods on order to score later, that's ok cos I am richer than him. Suppose I'd better not ask you to represent me when I snap his leg off and make him ask for it back.
You asked if I condone poor losers more than rich losers or words to that effect. Well if BA can't get custom because punters cant trust them to deliver when strikes are looming, they go bust and everybody loses their jobs. Doesn't need an opinion of rich versus poor to see that. It just shows you need commerce to flourish in order to be able to afford higher standards of living.
Anyway, I repeat in case if still hasn't sunk in. BA staff were fighting for perks, not living wages or conditions. If they went on strike, the chances of getting such perks diminishes as BA will have less money due to falling custom. That is nothin to do with rich, poor, Adam Smith or Karl bloody Marx. It is cosmumerism and that my most unlearned of friends is what drives economies. Rightly or wrongly
