Black Out the Beeb on Jubilee Day

Strikes are possible over the Jubilee weekend as unions reject what they call a ‘derisory’ pay offer of just 1%.

UNITE, the NUJ and BETCU are balloting over industrial action which could see the BBC’s coverage of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee forced off the airwaves.    Should the strike go ahead all good republicans should get down to picket lines and support them.  Whilst Beeb workers face effective pay cuts and redundancies, a fortune is being spent on yet another party for the fucking Windsors.

The Queen must be laughing her tits off at us.  With her subjects suffering under Con-dem austerity, the Windsors are quaffing Champagne and scoffing canapes paid for by cuts to disabled people’s benefits and free school meals.

That the Queen and her gang of inbred thieves have ruled over us for 60 years should be a cause of national mourning not celebration.  And now we are set to face another barrage of chinless toffs lording their riches and privilege over us.  Fuck them. Let the airwaves go blank on jubilee day.  A day of Eastenders repeats would be preferable to cringe-making pop stars sucking up to the Royals.  Peggy Mitchell would make a better Queen than Liz Windsor any day.  And the Mitchell brothers would be proper soldiers, unlike the effete pretensions of William and Harry.

But sparing fictional characters being made head of state, the best we can hope for is the unions sending a message to the world what’s really going on in the UK.  Should BBC bosses not back down we could even see a strike over the sacred Olympics as well.

Turn off your TV on Jubilee day and get down to a picket line or the anti-jubilee protest being held on the banks of the Thames by Republic.

  1. I hope they shut the lot down and people protest all over the country.

  2. Me too………..I will NOT be watching any of it. It is a slap in the face to decent people. But nio doubt they will suck it all up waving their pathetic flags. Such a shame they do not see the irony and unfairness of it all.

    Blackmail everyone on benefits into participating in #worshipfare flag waving and smiling at the parade. Mandatory Worship Activity or sanctions. I wouldn’t put it past the bastards.

  4. Indeed, our TV will be off – no need for anymore one eyed propaganda from the Beeb.
