let the looting begin!

The British firefighters have started their 48 hour strike (story)
I pray my hair does not catch alight argh, before friday!

I think that most of the public don't support them (they want a 40% payrise), and I saw something online about that people will turn on them as soon as the first child dies cos of their strike.

Social blackmail is a funny thing. firefighters want money and strike and putting lives at risk etc, but if a kid dies which always causes emotion than firefighters look like the source of all evil and have no chance of ever getting a pay rise.

If you're in the UK, look out cos everytime the BBC News reports on the whole issue, they have a reporter standing outside Ealing Fire Station lol! we're such a celebrity town :)
