    We're officially on strike, but as I'm not a member of Unison (yet) I've chosen to work from home rather than cross a picket line.

    I could have striked but im a scab! Im a unison member and a network manager in a school.

    I was going to work till 65 anyway...... But might have liked to leave at 60. If this strike fails I may strike next time.

    Thing is mate if you had been paying pension for most of your life... Then suddenly the government change the rules wouldn't you be pissed off?

    I pay 150 a month and my employer pays 300......... I should be able to retire at 60 if I can afford it! And why should teachers, doctors, nurses be any different?

    It shouldnt matter what job you do.

    We should all retire at the same age.

    there are people on strike out side the civic centre which is the building next to mine, on Lunch I think I'm gonna go and cheer them on, hand out bottles of water and start a fire in an old oil drum and poke it with a bit of wood from time to time.

    My cheers will include:

    C'MON LADS, THATS IT, STAND STILL.
    YOU, YES YOU, STAND OVER THERE, ITS MORE EFFECTIVE.

    anyone think of any others?
