is a strike on the cards?
We stand in unity,
Arms linked firmly at the gates,
Some are angry, some are crying
But every person stands as one,
To drive down prices,
Shock the government,
And prove we act as one.
The news at the moment, is terrifying, quite frankly. All that we see at the moment is the shocking news about the energy cap that doesn’t appear to be a cap at all. A note to the government: a cap doesn’t keep moving.
We are now looking at possibly £6,000 energy bills by next April and there are many people in this country who earn less than £10,000 a year, so how they are going to cope is anyone’s guess.
There have been calls on Twitter for a general strike, where we all just down tools until the government have no choice but to do something about the price increases.
I don’t remember a time in my life when people have actually felt scared about the winter and it is going to lead to people losing their lives.
I don’t know whether us Brits have it in us to strike, but it would certainly lead to an interesting time. Perhaps it would bring us all together as one? Perhaps it will just end in riots and chaos?
Who knows, but I hope that people are safe over the winter.
