Bloody brits

at it again...

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain was hit by the most wide-ranging wave of strikes in a decade on Thursday, with more than 100,000 public sector employees, from teachers to coastguards, striking against the Labour government.

It was another blow to Prime Minister Gordon Brown after he was forced by party rebels into a humiliating policy reversal over tax cuts on Wednesday and came a week ahead of local elections that will be his first major test at the ballot box.

Driving instructors, job centre workers and employees in pension and benefits offices joined teachers and coastguard operators in the one-day strike over pay. The unions estimated that between 100,000 and 400,000 people joined the action.

Refinery workers at the Grangemouth oil refinery in Scotland are also set to strike in a dispute over pensions that could cause major fuel distribution problems.

Business Secretary John Hutton said there was no need for the government to invoke emergency powers and Britain had enough fuel stocks and imports to maintain supplies.

Thousands of striking teachers marched through central London in a peaceful demonstration, bearing placards aloft. Public opinion was divided, with many supporting their stand and many others -- largely parents -- frustrated at the disruption.
Tens of thousands of teachers and thousands of college lecturers are staging their first national strike in 20 years, frustrated over pay deals they say don't match inflation.
"We teach the future leaders, the nurses, the teachers - you can't do without us," teacher Janet Arthur told Reuters at a protest rally in London.

"It's a vicious circle and poverty will set in. We want to have families as well."
Union spokesman Alex Kenny said: "Today's strike won't be the end of it."

Cunts
Wankers
etc, etc
Wifey is a teach and it is reasonably well paid
But regardless of the payscale she CHOSE the job,
so did they and the pay rates are well known
as an aside since wifey teaches Physics,
( and I should add got a teacher of the year award from the Institute of physics, UK wide basis, NOT a mickey mouse award )
Yet she only gets paid the same as an English teacher a Geography teacher a PE !! teacher etc etc,
all these jobs are well oversuscribed when any job advertised.
Yet our education system absolutely cannot recruit Physics teachers.
As they actually require a brain to teach the subject.
see above re PE teachers etc etc
And most of the physics graduates get much better paid employment elsewhere.
DOH

Interesting that the pay scale is not tied to supply demand.

No wonder the bloody science sucks. Without the free technology Uncle Sam
give them, the RAF will still be flying Spitfires.

Why "bloody"?
Is it a reference to menstruation and thus some half padded association with the feminine?

Is it just a half assed semi-polite curse word for stuck up schmucks?

"Fucking" has fewer letters and is easier to type and has no gender specific associations...

I'm just bloody asking....
