Things that cause inflation: low paid workers getting single digit pay increases

Things that don't cause inflation: uncapped multi million pound bonuses for the city

This needs to happen far more often.


Chris Philp has the comportment of a man whose plot to smuggle a couple of aliens through quarantine for the bioweapons division has just been uncovered.

Just saw a poll that shows the majority of adults support the RMT strikes. As you would expect, the support changes once you hit the exact Gammon line.

I've a sneaking suspicion that the reason capped bonuses were brought in was because bankers bonuses did cost the country an absolute fuckton of money.

Mick Lynch, from the interviews I have seen, seems to be just a normal working class guy fighting for workers rights. It's brilliant when someone like him can show up the Westminster political bubble fools. However, his time on air is limited beyond belief because even the BBC have a nasty allergy to anyone working class.

Does anyone know what the offer is from the rail companies and what the RMT is asking for? I've looked high and low, but all the articles on mainstream media don't go into details aside from current pay levels for some drivers and talking about disruption.

From what I understand the RMT are offering a 3% pay rise (So 7% below inflation) but it comes with redundancies as well.

Not impacted by strikes and generally oppose getting rid of manned ticket offices.

Strongly oppose strikes. Stupid old strawberry floats.

That's what I thought. They basically have zero idea what the strikes are actually about and have just been told by the Tories that they are being lazy and greedy.

They basically have zero idea about X and have just been told by the Tories Y sums up a depressingly large amount of voters.

As predicted, here we go with the attempt on yanking away human rights from everyone.
