To think that I would miss such creative Press Releases like this if there was no such thing as Google.
The Press Release has two flaws:
- Most of the Feltham & Heston constituency is TW and none is SW (or I could be kind and simply agree that I am not representative of SW but very representative of TW);
- My constituents in Feltham North, whom I have represented to the best of my ability since 2002, have never had a beef with the fact that I am an IT Project Manager. I do not believe that the wider constituency would either. I work for everyone that I represent and my current occupation, just like my gender/race/nationality/football team etc, is of little interest to most people.
According to Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary:
I do not operate in the real world.
So working in IT [for an airline] is not the real world? Really?
I come from such a thin and well heeled layer of our society.
Things certainly improved for my family growing up when my parents exercised the Right to Buy their Council House. I am a working class lad and a Llanelli boy who went on to be the first in his family to go to University. Yes, I am proud to work in IT. Whether these facts make me part of a well heeled society is open to debate and subject to definition. I think I have an idea what he is getting at 🙂
I am about the privileged seeking formal control of the country.
Oh, and I suppose I want the ‘right to vote’ to be removed from most people in society also?
He infers that I should get a real job.
Wonder what he thinks of GMB Members who have similar jobs to me and others on the SW unrepresentative hitlist?
