At long last, the IRISH PUBLIC SERVICE UNIONS are waking up from their long long slumber (self imposed)
We are now treated to wild howls of “shame on you”,”no never “and the ultimate “We will strike”
Normally this would be a welcome development but, for the obvious self interest that is being served here and I predict that the general public is not and will not support this exercise on self preservation
The general public are not as clueless as the Unions might otherwise think there are!
Firstly we can see the obvious discrepancies between the public and the private sectors,
Along with 200,000 other misfortunate’s, I have lost my pension, and Business and the prospects are not good going forward,
A job in the Public service would now be considered a lottery win by me and the other 500,000 unemployed
The gravy train in the public service as well in the Dail must be brought back to the levels that a small country on the peripheral of Europe must be done ASAP
The reawakened Unions concerns for the vunrable in our society is to be view with a grain of salt
Where were they when the Greens helped to sell us all in to financial slavery?
If they came out to defend the population from this obvious rip off of the ordinary people then they might get some support,
What about the corrupt bankers that is still in their big glass palaces in the IFSC and at AIB HQ and BOI HQ??? And the casino that is ANGLO IRISH BANK
The public still has not seen any of these Crooks from the financial institutions or corrupt politician being exposed and brought to the courts
These are the issues that concern the general public not Fat union bosses keeping their own plum jobs and perks
What pain are these union bosses taking???
The Public unions must wake up to reality and come down to the planet the rest of us are trying to live on
On this one I am with the hated Government side we must cut our cloth to meet our measure and if the unions are serious then they should call a general strike and let me and the millions of other citizens have our say through the ballot box
