We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Yes please!

When I saw this in my favourite newspaper

“Tens of thousands of civil servants, including staff in jobcentres, courts and driving test offices, are staging a half-day strike on Friday afternoon in what the head of their union, the Public and Commercial Services (PCS), said was likely to be the start of a “guerrilla war” of intermittent industrial action.”

My reaction was…

Awesome! Perhaps they could be induced to extend their strike for even longer and when the world keeps turning without them, maybe more people will wonder why they were being taxed to hell and back to pay for them in the first place.

My only worry is the strike will come and go without very many people actually noticing.

    Agreed Perry.

    Doubly awesome if in fact the world runs smoother than usual, just like when traffic lights fail and the result is often less congestion.

    “Intermittent industrial action”? It’s like they see themselves as bricklayers or coal miners.

    Reminds me of a strike at the local Remploy factory protesting a planned closure. If the whole idea is that Remploy is nothing but loss-making, taxpayer-funded busy-work for disabled people, surely not going to work is the last thing you should do?

    When no-one misses you, you’ll have made your critics case for them.
