UK Uncut Have The Popular Touch

UK Uncut tells it's hardy supporters to- "Come dressed as a worker; a nurse, a teacher, a builder, or anything you choose."

Imitating the life of one of the lower orders is a sure way to earning their love and respect as Marie Antoinette could tell them!

Excellent! I'll be looking out for a cop, a construction worker, a cowboy, an Indian chief...

They claim "The 30th of June will be an important day in the stuggle for a fairer UK"

No chance of stuggling for a literate UK I suppose?

This is a desperate attempt to conceal the fact that UK Uncut is a group of Champaign socialists, but it won’t work. They’ll be exposed as the Champaign socialists they are when they start talking in their posh accents.

My Dad used to take me out and about with him quite a lot in the 1970s.

One reliable constant was that the fellas who'd actually done a day's work would have a shirt and tie on in the evening/Sunday lunchtime when they were in the pub/club/union meeting.

The ones in the overalls with carefully applied grease marks were either sociology graduates or (in the case of the union meetings) bored Special Branch infiltrators.

Julia- It does sound very Village People.

AK Haart- If NUT members aren't at school that will help improve literacy.

Senior- No they'll probably just have Mockney Dick Van Dyke accents.

Starbryte- It's like comparing the largely working class crowd in the 1966 World Cup final, in suits and ties, with the current very middle class England followers who dress like yobs.
