RMT Underground maintenance strike paralyses London.

06-09-2007 14:24

On strike for jobs and pensions....
These days it seems that every five minutes the government are reminding us about the importance of our pension. It is given far more coverage than most things. As issues go it seems to be on the agenda every other day with some ‘expert’ warning us to invest in some private pension scheme or else.

So it is the height of hypocrisy for Gordon Brown to be describing the RMT Metronet strikers as “wholly irresponsible” when they are in fact on strike to protect their pensions!? Mr Blair (oops I mean Brown) goes on to call their action “totally unnecessary” when all they are doing is following government advice. And that, by the way, is the same government who introduced the ‘Public Private Partnership’ (PPP) to the Underground to begin with. Which resulted in years of total incompetence by PPP company Metronet. Which has now gone bust threatening everything from safety on the Underground, to massive job losses in the maintenance sector to the wiping out of peoples pensions.

And which chancellor introduced PPP?

Nice one Gordon……

Colluding with U.S. and Filipino reactionaries, Dutch fascist authorities arrested Jose Maria Sison, a Filipino political refugee, and raided the National Democratic Front International Information Office in Holland last Aug. 27.

Another Day, Another False Flag Op Foiled

05-09-2007 20:54

Once again, we are expected to believe a handful of patsies—excuse me, “terrorists”—were capable of taking out a U.S. military base, this time the Ramstein air base in Germany, but thanks to the diligent work of Germany’s “special police officers,” these America-hating miscreants were apprehended before they attacked.
