Unions are a grand thing, and similar to crossbows, are brilliant in the right hands. The ones in Ireland are a throwback to the days of the teamsters in the States and are as left-wing as Stalin was. I'm in the civil service pee-on union and it is an absolute joke. I studied in depth the rise of socialism and then communism and the beginning of the trade union movement worldwide and in Ireland and I tell ya, Jim Larkin and Kier Hardy would turn in their graves with the state of trade unions now. So no. I won't be attending the national strike.
