Agent Provocateur

Well not really, more like one of Lenin's useful idiots.Veteran socialist John McDonnell believes that the public sector should strike to keep their jobs, egging them on from the safety of his £64,000 parliamentary sinecure.

A SENIOR Labour MP joined militant union leaders yesterday in calling for strikes and “civil disobedience” to fight spending cuts.
Veteran socialist John McDonnell said it was time to “fight back” against coalition plans to tackle the deficit.
The hard-left backbencher, MP for Hayes and Harlington, was joined by Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union, as they addressed a rally of thousands protesting outside the Conservative Party Conference.
Mr McDonnell warned the coalition: “If you come for us, we’re coming for you. We’re coming with our demonstrations, our strikes, our civil disobedience and direct action. This is no time to sit on the sidelines, this is a time to fight back.”
Mr Serwotka said strikes “are inevitable”.
Now whilst John McDonnell has done a few low paid jobs, they were way back in the 60's and 70's, all of his time spent from 1977 has been for unions or local/national government, so much so that he probably thinks public servants are funded from magical fairy dust and not ordinary taxpayers. What he's basically doing is encouraging a mass suicide amongst the public service, because this government is looking for an opportunity to smash an enemy and until the Muslims kick off, the unions will do in their stead. John McDonnell seems to think the unions can win, despite all evidence to the contrary over the past 30 years. The coalition simply don't care, they will do what they will do and no amount of strikes will prevent them, if anything it will make their job easier as it will show them exactly who is and isn't needed.
John McDonnell is an idiot, then again he's a true socialist, what more can you expect.

What I cannot for the life of me fathom is where do the socialists the world over think the money is going to come from to fund their utopian vision of equality for all, except the socialist elite, once the evil capitalist system has been destroyed?
