Now begins the real Cuban Revolution:
Cuba has announced radical plans to lay off huge numbers of state employees, to help revive the communist country’s struggling economy.
The Cuban labour federation said more than a million workers would lose their jobs – half of them by March next year.
And get this, the country has only 5.1 million employees to begin with. If Cameron had the balls and good sense to follow likewise, he’d shut down government tomorrow!
President Raul Castro outlined some of the changes in a speech in August, saying the state’s role in the economy had to be reduced.
“We have to end forever the notion that Cuba is the only country in the world where you can live without working,” he said.
Clearly he’s never been to Britain. There’s a particular joy in all this, that yet another country which has been brought so low has (finally) no option but to throw off the evil ideology which has always and everywhere led to misery, pain and despair.
I wish the Cuban people well and sincerely hope they one day bring to justice the criminals who robbed their lives and imprisoned an entire nation.
Talk about pulling the rug out from under the Brothers at the TUC Conference. Just when they thought it was 1926 again Comrade Fidel comes over all capitalist!
