A Weberian nightmare where bureaucracy controls the whole show, targets overseen by a mass of the middle management class. They are the problem.
The cycle will only break when people start to rethink about money being the driving force. They’ve peddled this shit for too long.
One group that haven’t taken to the streets with dissatisfaction and in opposition to the politicians polices are the elderly.
Those living in Care homes or receiving home care. Those on a poverty pension
A hundred thousand altzhimers sufferers on the streets of London now what a sight that would be. The Grey Brigade
Nearly fell into the whole Public V’s Private Sector trap. The divide and rule tactics of the people in power; The Ploiticians and Trade Union Leaders. They say they represent the people and their members, when in truth they just represent themselves.
No I don’t agree with the motivations behind the pensions protest. I’ve never earned enough to pay into a pension fund, and I find it insulting that people earning £25,000 + a year consider themselves poor. To some people on the pensions protest it was just as much about ‘the stuff’ as the August Riots were to those involved then. I mean why else where there first time strikers on the march, was it was because nothing those in power had done had effected them before? I saw placards with “Hands off my pension” printed on them???? Excuse me but isn’t that a contradiction in terms…. I mean the words Union, unite and unison convey a feeling of togetherness not self individualism.
Private Pension pots were plundered by New Labour, no one defended theirs.
Public services could have taken strike action over numerous issues, for example Teachers Unions when targets and league tables were introduced.
Still it’s good to see the non-elected Lib Con government getting another kicking from more people they’ve pissed off, the middle classes are mobilizing themselves.
