OlympicsTo Be Hit By Another Strike

What is the matter with people these days? This week, just ten days away from the grand opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, the UK Border Agency (UKBA) workers have said they will go on strike the day before the opening. Whatever happened to national pride at a time when the UK will be the focal point of the world?

As a nation have we become so consumed by self-interest that we cannot spare a moment for the reputation of our country across the world?

There have been a number of fiasco’s recently in connection with the games, what with the security company G4S not living up to their contractual commitment meaning troops will have to fill the gap, and the UKBA recently failing in their task by allowing hundreds of thousands of people to enter the country without any proper checks. I should imagine after that particular fiasco, insurgents were surprised at how easy it was to enter the country to prepare whatever they have in store for the games.

The sheer audacity of the UKBA staff deciding to strike for 24 hrs before the games is a slap in the face for every honest and patriotic Brit. Maybe they do have some legitimate grievances like people losing their jobs and privatizing parts of the service in order to cut costs, something I might add that is desperately needed, but to hit the olympics like this is no answer. Our country can expect to see tens of millions of visitors from all across the world and the reputation of the entire country is at stake.

In the past months we have seen overland and underground rail workers, bus drivers and taxi drivers all threatening strike action during the games if their demands are not met for an olympic bonus of between £500 and £1000 just for doing their job! Its holding the country to ransom and who will be next, toilet cleaners and binmen? This whole strike scenario has been shameful, disgusting, and immoral right from the beginning. To me it is a shame that a few of these Labour Union agitators cannot be taken out and hanged in public as a lesson and a warning that British pride and patriotism will not be taken hostage at a time when the reputation of our once (sadly) great nation is at stake!!!
