Workers, throw down your iPads and revolt — 7 Comments

  1. Heh. Didn’t I say we needed something like a general strike just a few weeks ago? Why yes, yes I did.

    The trouble is, while I don’t think anyone on our side has the guts to try it, I wouldn’t put it past their lot. Now, you’re right: the real workers would laugh them out of town, but think of the disruption a general public sector strike might cause. They’re the ones who voted Remain. It’s common in conservative/classical liberal/libertarian circles to joke that nobody would notice, but they have the hospitals. They couldn’t bring the country to a standstill, but they could make things very awkward.

    • You did say that Sam, yes.

      >they have the hospitals. They couldn’t bring the country to a standstill, but they could make things very awkward.

      Remainers causing hospitals to go on strike would be a massive foot-shoot for the Remainers. I couldn’t imagine worse publicity for them. Deaths on their hands. They wouldn’t ever recover from that.

      • Still wouldn’t put it past them. They’re fanatical. Their chums in the media would constantly remind everyone that “essential services” were being protected, and everyone was on their side. They could do it.

  2. “…to save our democracy…”

    By ignoring the result of a national referendum and leaving us in the control of an unelected foreign bureaucracy? I’m having a little difficulty following his logic to be honest.
