200,000 civil servants can't be wrong

Congratulations to PCS members striking today - and tomorrow - in defence of their redundancy scheme and contractual rights (http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/news_and_events/news_centre/index.cfm/id/431B8B52-853B-40BE-8A089020BF1E31B2).

As an avid Clash fan I was unable honestly to sing along to Bankrobber without changing the words to "My Daddy was a civil servant" (which didn't scan quite so well). Because he was.

Whilst that won't have been true for all of us it is certainly true that all public servants are brothers and sisters even if not parents and children.

There are those who would divide us - setting local government against central government, or health workers against Council workers - just as the media seek to set private sector against public sector. These people are our enemies.

A victory for the striking civil servants will be a victory for us all.
