That wonderful warmth
That comes with love
From strangers on Twitter
And the newsreaders gently nodding
And smiling at ministers
Who they think are idiots
For the rubbish they spew from their mouths.
The National Education Union members have voted to go on strike over pay. And teachers are not the first people to strike recently. We will be following in the footsteps of rail workers, nurses and ambulance workers.
I worried that there may be a lot of backlash from non-teachers who don’t want to see more disruption to public services. After all, if you have children and the schools close, you will be unable to work because you have to stay home to look after them.
And yet, the reception on social media appears to be very supportive. And that feels nice.
People seem fed up with the way that our government are treating us. You can see it on social media, and in the faces of the news readers as they interview politicians who claim that they are looking after public servants.
Things will change soon. Hopefully.
