Bob Crow, Mark Serwotka, Christine Blower and Len McCluskey give a lead at the TUC March.

“We’ve marched twice now. It’s about time we looked at the practicalities of a general strike.”
So said Bob Crow to massive applause on the march.
Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary, said, “If marching doesn’t stop them, we’ve got to do what they’ve done in Greece, Portugal and Spain. We’ve got to have strike action right across the economy.

“It’s not enough to wish it. We’ve got to make it happen. Let’s say to our trade union leaders, me included, the time has come to strike and when we strike together we can win.”

Christine Blower, general secretary of the NUT, said workers needed to strike together—“when the time is right and all the practicalities have been considered”.

Len McCluskey called for a hand vote on the matter at the demonstration and unsurprisingly got about 200,000 yes votes and none againsy.
“We won’t get what we want simply by asking,” he said. “There was a motion at the TUC to consult on a general strike.
“We were asked to look at the practicalities and start a consultation. Well let’s start the consultation today – are you prepared to strike?”
McCluskey said, “Let’s have a vote.” The crowd voted. “I think that’s carried.” It should be.

The EU's vaccine export ban is potentially a genocidal policy, an act of an enemy. There are still remainers who would have us back in. The SNP & Alba after breaking up Britain would seek membership of the gangster EU.
Better together! Oppose the EU!

The EU wants to impose a vaccine export ban without saying it’s a ‘vaccine export ban’.
As usual, they play with language to deny their most unpleasant motives.

There have been numerous calls for Sturgeon to resign, on the grounds she has misled parliament. The workers of Scotland now should give the SNP it's marching orders, for attempting to create division in the British working class.

The defence & foreign policy review is to cut military personel; though total speding will increase with a focus on the technology of war: nuclear weapons expansion, development of bio-tech, cyber warfare, & artificial intelligence.
