Solidarity! We want none of that nonsense here

#1
The French have been out in force to protest against Mr. Sarkozy's proposal to raise the standard pension age to 62 from the current 60 years old, lucky bastards I say as our governments plans are to raise the state pension age for men from 65 to 66 from 2016, and to 68 by 2046. Women will move to a state pension age of 66 a few years after men.

What do we Brits do other than whinge on forums and down the boozer, well I will tell you what we do, we bend over quietly and say ‘right Dave’ I am ready for my punishment even though the reasons for it are no fault of mine, what a nation of pitiable sods we have become.

I just thought that you could always do what I did a few years ago if you feel so strong about an issue, put yourself up for election.
I fought and won a seat on the local council as a ratepayer because I felt more than a bit pissed off.
We actually split the parties and held the casting vote in many another issue.

Good on ya Rumrat you are a credit to the electorate, but sadly it's not for me.

Credit is not exactly the description the leader of the pre election ruling party attached to me and the other two ratepayers.
"Malignant growth on the good order of the community" are the exact utterings of a certain councillor, and "a physical manifestation of an electorate tantrum with an attitude problem" was the other descriptive prose we were flattered with. :roll: 8O

So we are a nation of forelock tugging wimps unlike the French who have a healthy disrespect for authority. :)

Indeed we could learn a thing or two from the frogs when it comes protesting about government excesses, maybe that attitude come from being a citizen of a republic?
