    It's no good striking when you services are not wanted, so they got that bit right.

    However, their intransigence smacks of blackmail against the employers because they know the employment law backs the strikers everytime.

    They don't need a Mad Bitch in Argentina, she will be incapable of sorting this, they need a MAGGIE THATCHER. She would soon get the lazy bastards back to work or out on their ears.

    Only if you were a lazy, left wing gob-shite who did not want to pay your way in society would you ever think that.

    I know why you don't want independence for Scotland, and it relates to the huge subsidy of £2,000 per head of the English people (ever man, woman and child) that you lot would lose.

    Hit a nerve, have I?

    @ 3 Please do not forget as far as the Scottish border goes in Northumberland the line twists north east and runs straight through the middle of the North Sea oil fields. Best vote no if you're a Scot. But you can take comfort from the fact that the majority of folk south of the border want Scotland to get independence.
