Woolworths: The Sad Truth for Many


Being a family man I found myself in a town centre today, taking back a non-functioning electrical Christmas pressie (egged on by a distraught sprog).

The story ended happily when the item was replaced and we continued with our assortment of errands, some of a banking nature, some comestible (those corned beef pasties won't eat themselves y'know!) and others of a more commercial/fanciful ensemble.

All of a sudden I felt an urge to pop into the local Woolworths and witness a bit of history and so - admittedly with little persuasion (or percussion!) needed on my part with Mrs FC and the FC sprogs - we found ourselves in a very eerie and strange Woolworths shop.

Most of the shelves were empty, many of them with "sold" stickers on, with people buying the fixtures and fittings.

One wall even had photocopies of things as mundane as office chairs, the branch safe (empty?) and the staff cooker for sale. It made my pic n mix free for all ("5 sweets each kids! Fill yer boots" -- not literally obviously) seem a bit tame, as some local yokels filled trolleys with bits of display stands.

Now, I'm not one to shed a tear for unbridled Capitalism and Big Businesses, but as with many of those interviewed on the news viz this episode of the "Credit Crunch," I find it a bit sad to see this happen.

When I was knee-high to a grasshopper (a pre-FC sprog if you will) I remember going to visit one of my myriad of unrelated "aunties" who worked in 'Woolies,' standing on tip-toe as I tried to see over the counter. So it is that Woolworths entered the early memories of many people, and we all feel an era is passing.

So what should we feel with the passing of Woolworths? I can't feel sorry for Big Business or multinationals. I couldn't even tell you who owns Woolworths. But there are people we should feel sorry for: the 27,000 employees of Woolworths who face a future on the dole.

Unemployment can never be easy, but going onto the dole with so many others (add on those from MFI and other firms going bust) and at the start of a recession must seem like the beginning of a long black night for many of them.

And that's what went through my mind yesterday as I took in the vista of all the decimated shelving units and dismantled point-of-sale bumf languishing in corners.

It's easy for Gordon Brown to play "saviour of the world" because he's used our tax-money for generations to come (via enslaving us to a super-duper blow-your-mind national debt) to "bail out" the banks and keep the greedy amoral scum, who lived high on the hog whilst the debt bubble grew and grew, in their positions.

Yet he stands by useless as a chocolate teapot as 27,000 Woolworths employees - from the shelf-stackers, through the till-tappers to the junior management - get a Christmas Present of a P45.

The Saviour of the World - Super Gordon? - gets in debt with the banks to bail-out the banks (heads they win, tails you lose) and the "normal" folks get covered in guano.

Perhaps if the Woolworths staff had been as greedy and as avaricious, gambling other people's money, then Super Gordon would have forked out a few billion to bail them out too?

And why not!

Let Gordon do a one-off payment and convert Woolies into a Workers Co-Operative, wherein the workers split the profits depending on the hours they work.

It might just work. It might just save him much more in long term dole, housing benefit etc. It might just save the high street. It might just show that Super Gordon cares for more than just Banking Bosses and Car firms owned by Indians.

And, as I paid for the few goodies selling at 50% and walked out of Woolies probably for the last time, I couldn't help think of all this and of Gordon Brown's skewed sense of loyalty and proportion.

Still, at least so many of the banksters and City of London wide-boys enjoyed blow-out Christmas parties.

That must be a comfort to all those facing 2009 being unemployed.

Gordon 'Misery Face' Brown has transmogrified himself into this Messianic figure and saviour of the world's corrupt and heinous banking system.

HO! HO! HO!

BAH HUMBUG MR BROWN

What he means to say centres on the fact that he's actively complicit in the gargantuan wealth transferance from the unsuspecting Goyim into the coffers of the parasitical and usurious Zionist bankers.

Imagine the Zionist banking system is a man feeding the pigeons (us Goyim) in a town centre. Some of the pigeons have black beaks, some have yellow beaks and the others have white beaks. Others are old and some are young. Some are fat and some are thin. Eventually the man only starts feeding the pigeons a few crumbs. The pigeons then turn on each other. The thin ones blame the fat ones for being too greedy. Others say the old ones don't need any food as they've had their life. The white ones will blame and attack the black ones and the yellow ones will blame the white ones and so on. Never do they come together and say hold on a minute its the man feeding us who is to blame. This is the future of Britain as it implodes as a result of a sickening and diabolical Satanic plot conjured up by a heinous cabal of Zionist Talmudic Baal worshipping pyschopaths that have ruled Britain from behind the scenes for 300 years.

This scene was perfectly potrayed in the aniamted film 'A Bug's Life'. In this film the leader of the grasshoppers (the Zionists) explain what would happen if the stupid ants (the Goyim) were to realize that they don't have to be under the control of the grasshoppers. One of the lines being -
"If you let one ant stand up to us, then they all might stand up!"

This is all foretold in the book written by Ayn Rand, a mistress of one of the Rothschilds. Its called Atlas Shrugged.

'England is no longer controlled by Britons. We are under the invisible Jewish dictatorship- a dictatorship that can be felt in every sphere of life.'
Nesta Webster, Germany and England, 1938

Soon they will control the citizens of this country as well, as millions of people will be thrown on the dole. You can bet your sweet bippy that they will either collapse and/or seriously curtail The Welfare State. This will result in a neo-feudalistic quagmire as millions of people will be in grinding poverty. Crime and riots will break out everywhere as people turn on each other. Immigrants rather than the corrupt and insidious hidden hand of Zionist international finance will be made the scapegoats. The shyster Shylocks will be rubbing their evil grubby hands with glee as their enemy the despised Goyim turn on and kill each other!

'Whoever is in power in Downing Street (British Foreign Office), whether Conservatives, Radicals, Coalitionists or pseudo-bolsheviks, the International Jew rules the roost. Here is the mystery of the Hidden Hand, of which there has been no intelligent explanation.'
Leo Maxse, Editor of National Review, 1919
