A message from history :

The Winter of Discontent refers to the winter of 1978–79 in the United Kingdom, during which there were widespread strikes by public sector trade unions demanding larger pay rises, following the ongoing pay caps of the Labour Party government led by James Callaghan against Trades Union Congress opposition to control inflation, during the coldest winter for 16 years

In 1969 Labour politician James Callaghan led a cabinet revolt which led to the abandonment of a proposed reform of trade union law outlined in a Barbara Castle white paper called In Place of Strife; had Castle's white paper been implemented, most of the action during the Winter of Discontent would have been illegal.

Britain's economy during the 1970s was so weak that Callaghan warned his fellow Cabinet members in 1974 of the possibility of "a breakdown of democracy", telling them that "If I were a young man, I would emigrate."[7] The Labour governments of Harold Wilson and Callaghan continued a fight begun in 1972 against inflation upon election in February 1974. Inflation had peaked at 26.9% in the 12 months to August 1975, but while demonstrating to markets fiscal responsibility they wished to avoid large increases in unemployment.[8] As part of the campaign to bring down inflation, the government had agreed a 'social contract' with the Trades Union Congress which allowed for a voluntary incomes policy in which the pay rises for workers were held down to limits set by the government. Previous governments had brought in incomes policies backed by Acts of Parliament, but the social contract agreed that this would not happen.[3]

The future ??

Nice defence of what is, obviously, your favored party of govt, there Strongy.

Youre obviously one of those who is very proud of the most severely disabled getting shafted of another 76 quid a week. It must give you a warm fuzzy feeling inside when you walk past someone in a wheelchair knowing that your vote has just robbed more money off them.

Bravo Strongbow.

Your defence of this current government is the affairs of the early 70's?

Let's be clear bud ... I do not and never have defended this government, so lets put that one to bed eh .... don't get like Philly who tends to make things up to try to win an argument.

I have big concerns about Saint Jeremy and his comrades being a viable government but this does not mean that I support the tories, despite Philly trying to make it look that way.

"Harriet Harman wrote: “Inexplicable. Inexcusable. Dismayed.” Stella Creasy said: “It’s not OK. Even if it’s meant as a joke, reinforces menace that men have the physical power to force compliance.”

Seems your own party disagree with your 'it's only the word bitch' point of view. Given your posts re that female English footballer I didn't think condoning misogyny was your thing by hey ho.

Maybe those women criticising Clive should "shut their mouths for the good of diversity"?

Clive Lewis was completely out of order and should be condemned for his stupidity and misogyny. Meanwhile, people seek to use the actions of one man to provide a smokescreen for the utter chaos that is the uk government. If I were a Tory, I'd hope that there were going to be plenty more gaffes to deflect from the disgraceful,divisive, regressive welfare, education, health and care policies, the shambolic Brexit negotiations and the weakest and most pointless PM in living memory.

I want Labour to win but if everyone suddenly gets greedy
it can be as bad as the tories, the danger for me is all the
"middle class" want a wedge too.
The priority should be at the bottom. The costs of this should
come from the top. Simplified. (It's not just getting rid of the
tories its moving away from the unearned greed - that hamstrings the country)

And now Jared O'Mara has been caught promoting rape culture. This is getting as bad as the anti-semitic roll they went on last year.

I'll stick to being a non-binary vegan tory shit weasel thanks.
