S.Hark has a fan:
RE: - S. Hark, Bedlam, Earth, 01/7/2011 It's true. If they wen't on strike then this wouldn't have happened. There is alot of schools on a training day today, not striking now. They get paid for their summer break and could have striked then (as they are still employed). Gready, gready teachers. If you teachers get your fat pensions then I hope you think that this girls life was worth it. My thoughs are with the family. I don't give a dam about the gready teachers.

S.Hark: I refrain from uttering my immediate opinion of you. I can only hope, for your sake, you're taking the Michael. Otherwise your perspective on this issue is utterly warped, so much so you agree with the most ludicrous (and disgustingly opportunist) article i've read in a long time. Some facts for you: - The UK has some of the lowest public pensions in the developed world, averaging £4,000. That's £77 a week. - The average teacher's pension is £9,000. Are these truly gold-plated pensions? Of course we're told that private sector workers have to contribute a lot more. Well that will be because the private sector has virtually opted out contributing. So we should all race to the bottom should we? Pensions can be affordable (for that you need to look at a far bigger range of interconnecting financial and structural issues). The government chooses not to make the affordable through its prioritisations of budget.
