    my heart went all arrhythmic over getting that bloody Maori Party post sorted.

    It’s okay Steve, I’ll bust you out of that blogging sweatshop one day.

  3. Steve Pierson 3

    You were the one who put me in here in the first place, and you busted the bloggers union I tried to set up.

  4. Absolute Power 4

    Is the blogger’s union compulsory membership and must you vote for Labour?

  5. Matthew Pilott 5

    No, A P, most unionised bloggers are smart enough to do so anyway 😉

  6. Steve Pierson 6

    No, but you have to be able to type 70 wpm and to dissolve steel with your caustic wit.

    Steve: you and i both know we were never going to improve blogging productivity with the unions holding us back.

    AP: the BUNZ is an anarcho-syndicalist union based on free association and direct action, and recognises parliamentary democracy for the bourgeois sham it is.

    is that the company started by gerald mcboing-boing or is it the other mcboing-boings?

    “anarcho-syndicalist union ”

    Isn’t that an oxy-moron?

    Phil, not at all!

    Anarcho-syndicalism is a branch of anarchism which focuses on the labour movement.[1] Syndicalisme is a French word meaning “trade unionism” hence, the “syndicalism” qualification. Anarcho-syndicalists view labour unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the State with a new society democratically self-managed by workers.

    ironically, that wikipedia extract is taken from Tane’s doctoral dissertation titled “anarchism and unionism: they’re not mutually exclusive, damn it!”
