    I hope they stay on strike until the whole edifice of the Mad Bitch's 'government' shatters.

    It makes a change from blaming Britain though.

    I hope the workers see how on this and other forums the biggest supporters of the strike are the biggest neoliberals, and think again. I hope they do get a pay hike out of this, and you guys probably don't becase your on the side of the capitalists, but it will be worse for ordinary people like them if they bring down the ”whole edifice of the Mad Bitch's (sic) 'governemnt'”

    What do you base that assumption on, that the ordinary people will be worse. Can you name one positive thing the mad has done since her re-election last year ?

    she sneezed perhaps lol.
    on a lighter note, it comes to something when the people have to get bribed to support her,
    and alas as [3] now calls her his very own queen,
    one has to wonder how much he was paid.
