Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week September 11, 2016Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
This interview with John Halligan will be of interest to people. So will this column by Stephen Donnelly. Meanwhile, a return to stupid form by the Sindo this week and, encouragingly, by an almost entirely different set of people than normal. The future for this feature may be bright after all.
A quite vomitous column on strikes, in which once again workers trying to protect their conditions are attacked on the grounds that others have worse conditions.
As Celtic Tiger cubs, we grew up with the notion we were going to be fitter, stronger and live longer, fuller lives than those who came before us.
Bank collapses, economic devastation and continuous financial threats have leveraged our futures against Mike Ashley’s zero hour contracts and a culture of job hopping.
Those from ‘generation emigration’ who stayed at home could go on strike in search of better conditions, but battling against contracts that run out every 12 months, we are reminded we are instantly replaceable.
A conveyor belt of desperate graduates worried about how they will pay their over-inflated rents lie waiting to capitalise on any job openings.
That is why the industrial action at Dublin Bus now, and Transdev before it, is so maddening for younger generations.
Can’t believe this rubbish is being wheeled out yet again.
Perhaps the silliest comment this year comes in a discussion of the Social Democrats.

The headline is a peach too.
