Report Its Begun: 5,557 Fireman To Be Let Go in House prices and the economy Posted October 19, 2010 Green Goddesses!!!!! Mrs Thatcher ordered them out of moth balls in the 80's and they were 30 years old then. Doubt they could hose down even a front door anymore. It's a war on debt, so perhaps there will be a call-up of volunteers where we all try out each others essential jobs, when the strikes are on. I'm sure we would all be surprised by some that we can do easily and others that you can't. There will be no one happy with the cuts except very rich people who will find their money goes much further as we all scramble for business of any sort. There are no safe jobs virtually. Mrs Thatcher used to have a nickname being TINA - standing for 'There is no alternative'. Green Goddesses, what do I need them for ? We have a fleet of shiney new Dennises all of the country, let the firemn go on strike, but the fire trucks are ours, the taxpayers, not theirs. And whoever brought about this crazy 'unwritten' rule that we can not use our eqipment because these luvvies are upset by reality needs testing, and if it is written it needs revoking straight away. Bring it on, and if there is a fire, I will go and get the Dennis myself, 'it's ours not yours love !'
