I've told you how you can demonstrate that I'm wrong. You could alternatively apologise for lying, and refrain from doing so in future.

As for unprincipled, that you will live as you preach others should is too much to hope for. You will, I expect, continue to claim your State handouts and keep complaining that others do likewise. Note that my accusation does not relate to accepting benefits.

As for not being friendly, I have many good, generous, honest, principled, interesting and talented friends.

No. A strike is a unilateral withdrawal of labour to further a dispute with an employer (or n this case a controller of an employer) - exactly what happened whether the strikers went on otherwise to protest or not.

.........................

As for going shopping on a strike, it's interesting to recall that the original term used when the idea of a General Strike was invented back in the 1830s was "the Grand National Holiday". High time the name and the notion was revived.

We work to live, we don't live to work. Unless we are either crazy, or quite unusually lucky in the kind of work we are able to do.

A point. How does one nail the lie that teaching and local government pensions are "unaffordable"? Teachers pay in more than is paid out by the government each year, so do local government workers.
The proposed 3% extra contribution will all go to the treasury as a stealth tax, and the government refuses to release the figures.

hi akenaton ..

my mother is a retired care home assistant.
She was a worker at the lowest paid rung of the hierarchy
who spent most of her working life wiping arses and washing intimate body regions, day noon and night
[24 or more hour shifts sometimes].

She held that job for years never losing sight of her constant genuine respect and affection for the often cantankerous old folk
who'd been dumped by their reasonably well off families.

- and my mum was still grafting hard at work for very little financial reward well into her 60's..

..with no union to support and protect her...

I recall it may well have been a private 'residential care home',
scamming as much out of the public purse the owners could get away with,
until suddenly closing down overnight to reap the benefit of rising property values.

She was pensioned off about 15 years ago, replaced with cheap young 'trainees'.
Even then that was still some kind of elderly care system
to be relatively proud of.

We soon had hopes dashed a returning Labour Govt would be an improvement..

My mother's generation of underpaid skivvies has been seriously let down in retirement
by successive Govts as much as any financially much better off pensioners with a sense of self righteous grievance.

She's nearly 80 now, no savings, no ownership stake in our 'family home' of more than 40 years
- ie. the council house that the privatised housing agency is trying so hard to bully her into giving up..

Noone in our family has managed to earn enough significant savings or fund private investment plans,
[only a handfull of us left alive - with our own 'fair share' of health problems and disabilities..]
and I am just scared what will happen to my mother
and how we will cope in the next few years..

So yes, it is a very bleak future to look forward to getting older in post Cameron UK...

My wife has the only 'decent' salary in our immediate family.

She is a public sector education worker.
It's a real concern how much longer her health will survive the unremitting increasing workload and longer hours
and pressure being heaped upon her in the short while since the tories got back in.

It's no help that the school Head had a career in business
and only a few short years teaching experience
before promotion.
This Head is remorselessly unsympathetic or supportive,
and now seems to be hell bent under this new regime
on impressing LEA superiors with how tough she can be
sqeezing far more work out of long serving dedicated staff.

Cameron's tory Govt seriously believes it can get away with forcing ageing front line public sector workers to work more years until retirement,
while piling on the grinding stress that will cause so many high quality loyal public servants
to either drop dead prematurely at work,
or quit through ill health to take early retirement
at reduced pension rates !!!!???


and apologies to mudcat mods if it's not always so clear
where the 'discussion' dividing line lays between 'issues'
and personalised disagreements founded through bitter experience...

hi

Thanks Kat.

One of the problems is that the use of statistics used "modified" to suit the situation.

For instance the present Government claim that all Public service workers get gold plated pensions is really not true.

The figur quoted below of £4000 per annum is very low by any standards. I have seen £5000 quoted but hell that is low too. Mt State pension is higher than that !!!

The gold-plated figur includes senior management and executive staff who will receive from £50000 per annum.

These are not the people who have been selected to have their pensions cut.

As usual in all the political issues we are never actually comparing apples with apples.

Cheers

Mike

"poor sad bonzo..

What a fucking joke!......have you ever been inside a "care" home lately...or read the newspapers?

They're more likely to rifle through his drawers than wipe his arse, feed him, or give him any form of stimulation.

We should be ashamed of how we treat our old people, as far as I can see they are looked upon as money on legs, foced to sell their homes an use all their saving to keep themselves alive.

I visit homes in our area, and all are poor....some are disgraceful.

I went to visit one of my old female teachers, who had just been served "dinner"
A brown rock hard 4" square surrounded by what had once been chips,
When I enquired what it was, the "care" worker replied without a blush....."La-san-ya!"

Money controls everything, to most folks, their space and consumerist lifestyle takes precedence over the welfare of their elderly parents......whats the point of an extended life expectancy when that life is empty and worthless?

I we are going to strike, why is it not about the REAL poor, those struggling on min wage...or part time work with no union to hype up a glorified holiday.....we dont need a strike, we need a fuckin' revolution....in the way we think.

The present pension arrangements were negotiated and agreed and settled back in 2008.   So the people affected by them are now expected to accept that they should now be torn up and worse terms imposed in place of them.

It's a bit as if the people you bought your furniture from couple of years ago turned up on your doorstep demanding extra payment, or they'd come in and smash up your place.

Firstly, very many of the P.S.workers who struck yesterday were doin it for the first time in their lives in some cases; for the first time in 25+ years. So until yesterday, they were in the same group.

In the second place, there are very large numbers of conservative/Conservative teachers who have learnt, and teach, obediance to authority. While other teachers teach critical judgment and an independant attitude.

I really do hope Bonzo is just winding people up as usual, because if he isn't I wonder what contact he has with reality.

The point that these "every man for himself" mouth foamers miss is that most people in the public SERVICE (my capitals) have worked for years for not enormous sums, knowing, or thinking, that they have a safe, but NOT gold plated, pension at the end of it. It's called a contract - isn't it?

A close relative of mine has given her career to the NHS since the age of 17, and is now nearly 60 and in a highly responsible position. A couple of years ago she had had her pension contributions increased and her retirement date put back - she reluctantly accepted this. Now, once more, she is faced with having to work longer for less pension, and pretty damn annoyed at being cheated by shysters like Cameron, Osborne and Maude. I note that THEY still have their gold plated final salary pension scheme and no doubt, nice big trust funds from Daddy. But of course, we're all in this together, aren't we George. George?

Lets be honest - no party shows much respect for teachers.

Before the war they cut all teachers wages, some bloody pretence or another. Think of Shirley Williams saying that she didn't intend to listen union leaders opinions about salary structure, as their opinions were not worth paying attention to. Think of Keith Joseph telling blatant lies about how they had consulted with teachers for ten years before introducing the National Curriculum. The man was full of it.

This business of government finding ways to loot our pension funds should be stopped though - they simply have no right to this money. They get enough in tax, and they never explain properly how they are spending it.

Everyone pays tax. VAT on everything. Fuel tax. Unavoidable for most of us.

I don't think striking will do it. And no political party will forego getting their fingers in that honeypot.

Just for once wouldn't it be great if the unions got smart and took the bastards to court and challenged the legality of this embezzlement?
