View Full Version : Cost cutting safety implications

You tried this a couple of days ago, and a lot of us told you we don't share your point of view. That's the polite way of putting it.

No-one (except you) gives a sh*t about what the Socialist Worker has to say, so please give up and go do something useful.

Merely the name of the website puts most people off! Not really 'newsworthy', is it? This is meant to be for aircraft accidents, incidents, accident reports, BIG aviation-related news items. Perhaps your 'news' belongs more on a political website focused on classwar? You know...bosses v. workers.....that sounds SO old fashioned now. You're fighting a dinosaur politico-class battle, but maybe not here please.

A lot of the posts Balderdash has made since he joined three days ago contain this Socialist Worker link. I don't know what he's up to but it seems he has his own special agenda which is out of place here.

You might be better off in the Scottish section, much more fertile socialist fodder up there for you. In the meantime leave this to people who have

self funded their careers

Don't feed the troll. :ugh:

Let's try to be nice to Balderdash. It's not easy to be a militant socialist these days. He missed all the good times.
Great "them vs us" battles were fought and lost, and the good old days will never return.

As dear Maggie (T)once said

" The problem with socialists is that sooner or later they run out of other peoples money to spend"

And so it comes to pass with Gordon (lets think of a new stealth tax) Brown

Boys and girls. I suspect we're getting tired of balderdash. However he still has one potential use.
If one of your less respected colleagues is leaving, and you want to give the world's most boring retirement speech, you know who could write it.

i suggest you read up on ALARP concepts if you're looking for some information on this topic.

Balderdash: senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing; nonsense.

Never had anything to do with BA (except flying with them a few times), but I confess to finding this attempt to manufacture news and hysteria out of a retirement party down at the barrel-bottom scraping end of the spectrum.

Does remind me however of my university days when the SWP was, even then, the biggest giggle on campus. Keep up the good work, comrade - haven't had such a good laugh in years.

Now that is conclusive proof that BA PR dept is up early and throwing all their invented alias' at this one.
Wrong. As it happens I work for a competitor of BA and have no personal axe to grind. However I find your constant knocking of BA to be offensive, and likely to be associated with the whole industry in the minds of unqualified readers. You do nothing but inflame the situation for your own dubious ends.

Actually, Balderdash does have a point here re job cuts.....ask the guys who formerly worked in the pool....or, better still, those who worked at BFS / GLA / BHX and MAN.( not sure about ABZ and EDI ) ...next time you operate out of MAN, have a look at that large building adjacent to Monach's establishment....it's been empty for some time....about 120+ Eng's used to work there......they were all well and truly screwed by London Airways at the time.......around 2001 ?

Don't get too excited Balders ...and others....my comments reflect those involved in the job cuts which went largely unnoticed at the time...not the so called "class war"....or the operational safety issues.....real or imaginary.

Do you really expect us to believe that you personally have BA sufficiently rattled that they will follow you around on public forums contradicting what you say?
Having just knocked BALPA for six they are hardly likely to worry about an impotent little twerp like you.

And no, I don't work for BA either.
