Kiddie Power

Daft Dave has come up with a belter of a plan to beat the strikes planned for next week. Instead of sensibly ordering the army to shoot every striker on sight, he's decided instead to shame them back to work by getting down with the kids. At least that's what I think when I see the headline:

Sounds brilliant. It's the public sector lot who are going off on a jolly so how will we know? Ordinarily I'd say let 'em and see if they are missed, but this is much better. Don't take your kids to your work with you, take them to the strikers' workplaces and let them run things for a day.

Given the plethora of non-jobs that make no difference to anybody's life, such as Equality Outreach Officer, Stakeholder Engagement Manager and Future Shape Programme Coordinator, would it come as any sort of surprise to discover that a five-year-old with a crayon and a Pritt Stick could be just as effective? And they will probably do the job for the strike-beating wage of a go on the Postman Pat ride at Asda and a chocolate Cornetto.

This is too good an opportunity to miss!
