Calling Ebeneezer Goode

I heard something on the radio last night about a march for the Dunne’s workers. Would you happen to know any of the details about it?

I’m a Union Man. I’ll march for all our members of IMPACT,

@Ebeneezer Goode I will be continuing my ongoing boycott* of Dunnes Stores in solidarity.
Will the union manage to even get all the shops on side this time? Didn’t some of them refuse to strike the last time.

*my boycott is more to do with no Dunnes being near me, I can’t promise to maintain it if I move

I bought some nappies and baby food in Dunnes in Gorey at the weekend as they had the best special offer of any of the supermarkets in the town.

I’m doing whats best for my child mate. Would you recommend I do otherwise?


It was in the year of '84 s*** really hit the fan
When ‘Mac the Knife’ MacGregor, Maggie Thatcher’s hatchet-man
Said, Another twenty pits will have to close to meet the plan
And we’ll dump another twenty thousand miners

Daddy were you with the first of the first
Did you tell the NCB to do its worst
Or did you save your lily liver
Sell the union down the river
A scab, a blackleg, one forever cursed

When Arthur Scargill heard the news he cried, This Yankee slob
Is a gift from Cowboy Reagan and he’s here to steal our jobs
Do an axe-job on the union for the crummy Thatcher mob
But we’ll show him what it means to be a miner

Daddy did you man the picket-line
Did you fight to save the future of the mines
Or did you take the wrong direction
Did you squeal for police protection
Did you let 'em see your india-rubber spine

Well the Yorkshire lads came out on strike and said, It’s evident
The only way to stop MacGregor and the government
Is to bring the lads out everywhere from Scotland down to Kent
And we’ll show 'em what it means to be a miner

Daddy what did you do in the strike
Did you stand there with your mates and join the fight
Or did you show a yellow belly :smiley:
Spill your guts out on the telly
Did you let the bosses fill you full of s***e

Some didn’t heed the strike call for guts and brains they lack
They’re the colour of a primrose though their hearts and legs are black
And their noses are all brown with being up the rear of Mac :eek:
They’re just a bunch of dirty blackleg miners

Daddy did you march at the head
Did you stand there on the picket-line unfed
Or did you sell your mates to have a
Fortnight on the Costa Brava
Did you choose a two-week holiday instead

Well the battle it is joined at last the forces they are massed
On their side the press the telly all the weapons of their class
Plus MacGregor and his blacklegs but we’ll never let 'em pass
The NUM’s the weapon of the miners

Daddy what did you do in the strike
Did you scab and let your workmates wage the fight
How the neighbours stood and booed us
Said we had the stink of Judas
Daddy what did you do in the strike

I was fully behind the Decency for Dunnes Workers campaign (I even “liked” it on Facebook) but the smug, bleeding heart sanctimoniousness of @Ebeneezer Goode[/USER] and [USER=80]@The Selfish Giant is really turning me off. I think I’ll support the management from now on.

@Ebeneezer Goode is it true that Alan Ryan was clipped by John Stokes?

I bought batteries for a remote control car I purchased for my son in there on Sunday. I don’t know whether I did a good thing or a
bad thing. His mother works elsewhere in the shopping centre.

I thought Dunnes had shut down their shop in Gorey?

Re-opened for 2 months, so they say. Worrying times.

They reopened while they try and thrash out an agreement on this external door. Dunnes are trying to bully the shopping centre but as they’re dealing with receivers, they’re getting nowhere. It would be in the top 20 Dunnes in the country from a turnover point of view apparently so its unlikely they’ll close it permanently.

@ebeneezergoode why are you bringing traffic menace Alan Ryan up today?

His brother worked for Dunnes and was let go without any reason.

That’s Vol. Alan Ryan.

Not in top 20. Not dealing with receivers anymore, shopping centre was sold two weeks ago.
