With my apologies to the mighty legendary Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band I give you "Striking in the UK" #ToriesOut208 #AltLyricsParodyCrew #GeneralStrikeNow #GeneralElectionNow #FckTheToriesButNotLiterallyObvs #SupportTheStrikes ✊🤘🎸
Worn down by a Tory government
They’ve filled our rivers and our seas with excrement
Came for your rights but that wasn’t enough
Made up total b*llocks about levelling up now
Striking in the UK, need a strike to save the UK
Need a strike to save the UK, Striking in the UK now

The Final Countdown a New Year's Eve classic but I think you'll agree this is far better - A General Strike Now (Duchess Stylee) #ToriesOut175 #FcktheToriesButNotLiterallyObvs #GeneralStrikeNow #GeneralElectionNow
We’re striking together
We want our fair pay
Maybe we’ll come back
To work one day
You know the Tories are to blame
We’ve had enough
Will things ever be the same again?
We need a general strike now
A general strike now
We’re heading for tyranny
And still we stand tall
Cause maybe they’ll realise
This is their downfall (yeah)
With fuel bills rising
And inflation too (inflation too)
Surely this is our uprising
We need a general strike now
A general strike now

Corporate greed has birthed a 21st century Gilded Age where capital accumulation on the back of crisis exerts a stranglehold on workers rights to a decent wage and right to strike #BrexitCarnage
What's happening now is a return to the old ways and the old abuses of western Imperialism. Tories ideology of social Darwinism thrives on manufacturing crisis while extorting public wealth to subsidize and sustain total corporate hegemony. REUL Bill will cement that power.
Tories thrive on economic mismanagement and anti-governance, capital accumulation exploits unemployment by off shoring their profits. As workers and unions are eviscerated, so public spending is hobbled. Disaster capitalism & the REUL Bill will sunset 4000 EU Laws on 31.12.2023

Away in The Commons
The MPs did sit
Voting for bills that would
make the people's lives sh*t
We need fair pay and staffing
The workers did cry
But the ministers didn’t listen
And did nothing but lie

Twas the week before Christmas and all through the country
The Tories were laughing while the nation was up a gum tree
The Nurses on strike and the public behind them
Meanwhile Steve Barclay was refusing to pay them
The foodbank shelves were desolate, the trust was warning…
Meanwhile JRM said that this was “heartwarming”
So the workers asked for a pay rise, they gave it a punt
Except the Tories were acting like ...Steve Bakers 😉

#EnoughIsEnough #energybills
last night the FT reported Truss will immediately invoke Article 16 causing a trade war whilst we have rampant inflation, are heading in to recession & at the moment 70% of businesses will fall off a cliff in October when they renegotiate energy bill
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
several quotes here from 300% increases to over 1,100%.... as I have been alerting everyone to, since the 10th March.

if govt doesn't step in immediately, the UK will have businesses failing faster & harder than they did in 2008
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
here's my thread from the 10th March stating businesses will fall off a cliff, nearly 6 months later STILL NO ACTION has been taken, this is INEXCUSABLE! If I knew it in March, then the govt sure as hell did!

I'm sick to my stomach not just for myself but for so many in this country who will suffer this coming winter ,there's help out there ,try and access it ,the reality is unless your able to spend a day on the phone answering endless question we're well and truly fucked ,carers
Dont have time to sit for hours, people with mental health issues quickly become overwhelmed with the hoops you have to jump through, (apologies for the swearing) reality is going to hit this winter and hit fast ,can no-one in government hear us,are we standing here completely
Alone, why don't you care about the vulnerable, old, disabled people who are facing such darkness in the coming months, some of them literally, can any of you @Conservatives imagine trying to decide between eating a hot meal or being warm on a winters day,our children being fed

BEWARE: 55 Tufton Street! (Civitas) has produced a report saying the UK has the most expensive & 2nd worse health system after the US BUT Tufton St Civitas admits they've included COVID expenditure, Test, Trace & Isolate in their calculations (without saying it's £37 BILLION!)

Royal Mail workers to vote on strike action that could cripple deliveries

A 2% 'pay rise' is a REAL-TERMS PAY *CUT* when inflation is running at 9%, and is expected to hit 11% by the end of the year. #IStandWithRoyalMail @CWUnews

Workers DESERVE a pay…
rise that MEETS OR EXCEEDS inflation, especially when Royal Mail made QUADRUPLE the pre-pandemic profit of £726 MILLION. Thats £726,000,000. And they're refusing to budge from a 2% pay offer.

This is PREDATORY GREED from bosses at this point, and we need to FIGHT for workers

There's reasons #ToryFascists are wanting to scrap the Human Rights Act...partly to ensure a #ReturnToSerfdom in a #ModernFeudalism scenario.

We CANNOT allow this. This is #ClassWar at this point.

Worker strikes 'not easy to organise' and need 'burning sense of injustice'

@The_TUC Are DEMANDING a fair wage for work. That meets or is above inflation. Workers DEMAND a decent standard of living, and to be brought out of poverty. 4 MILLION kids in…
poverty, most have a parent in work. Foid bank use going up & donations going down are leading to them running out of food & having to close without helping everyone that needs it. Teachers, Care Workers, Retail Staff, even our NURSES having to use food banks. 8.5 MILLION in
poverty by the end of this year. Our PM deciding he doesn't need ethics oversight. Why? A summer of attempting to Union-break forthcoming??

Workers have a RIGHT not to live in poverty. So do the Disabled & Elderly. (Until they take that away too, as @DominicRaab says he

Actually, there is something we can do. Every person who works in a school building should stop coming to work. Every single one. All across the country. Stall the economy and demand sensible gun laws. Until they pass, we don't work.
Reminder to all: I do not debate with people who won't do anything to protect our children. I will block. I don't care about your opinion. Children keep dying. Teachers keep dying. Enough is enough.
There shouldn't be a debate about ANY of this. CHILDREN ARE BEING MURDERED IN THEIR SCHOOLS! Has everyone just completely lost it? FIX this. NOW. Do SOMETHING. ANYTHING. #nomore
