This to my mind represents Ireland to-day When will the people rise up and kick this lot out?
With these kind of threats coming from a Union Boss
It’s hard to see the general public supporting this electricians Strike
There are thousands of fellow electricians without a job, and asking the public to pay higher rates in these times of hardship is just bonkers!
If they are owed money they should get it, but demanding more, that’s another story
The union Boss would be better off demanding from the Government immediate retraining and up-skilling grants for the unemployed otherwise a lot more of his union breather will be joining me on the dole queue
and what good will that do ?

Da –da Lid-dil-lis –da –da etc etc !!!
As I write this article I am listening to what in fast becoming a program I look forward to every day now
Anyway I will tape the show as best I can
You will hear this Union Boss telling reluctant electrical contractors they have to charge new higher hourly rates and the small contractors are saying that they have to live in the real world and charge what the current market will pay now
This gob-s*** spends the entire time making a complete buffoon of himself and reminds me of the loony 70s Trade unionist that went on strike for cups of tea in the English car factories then
He sounds as if he has his nose completely up is *** and is clinging on to his chairman Union Red Book Mantra
This proves to me that I was right about the trade unions here in Ireland; they are one and the same with the current government
They have lost their roots and are complexity out of touch with the ordinary working people
Time and Time again ordinary working electricians were ringing in to the show to say they did not want to charge these new charges because the current economic conditions do not support them! People just cannot pay these ridiculous hourly rates
Well none of these rates are as bad as the hourly rate I was quoted for my Renault car repair
Remember the 120Euro per Hour Bill Cullen wants to charge, He must want to buy a new Porsche and hopes that people like me will just cough up the bread
the point is there are a lot of people still out there that have not yet coped on that we are now in a depression and the good times of ripping off Joe public is over for good
So get real!!
