The Heathrow Wine Party? Versus The Boston Tea Party? - Poem by Joe Rosochacki
Union bargaining in good faith without judicial interference?
That sounds clumsy in respect to 'Taxation without representation'.
But there is not so much difference;
One involved tea and the other wine, one involved transport by sea,
The other air transportation.
The American colonists had dressed up has Native Americans,
And boarded a British boat the was carrying tea.
The colonists have had enough being taxed by London,
They had no representatives in Parliament, so they acted.
They tossed a huge amount of tea into Boston Harbor,
Permanently destroying the tea leaves when they were done.
Now fast forward about 240 years.
Some members of the
-The British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association (Bassa) ,
Were dissatisfied when the courts, in London,
-stepped in nullifying their pay raise with British Airways.
Not only that, BA fired many of their staff,
- because the world wide recession
Bassa planned to strike over the last Christmas holiday;
-the strike would've hurt British Airways for weeks if not days.
The court stepped in, and Bassa did not win.
Instead a few of them,
-not dressed up like Native Americans or not even dressed up like Picts,
Druids, Brythons, Gaels, Angles or Celts,
Poured good wine down the drain of the plane,
British Airways always kept the unfinished bottle of wine,
That they served in First Class,
-in the refrigerators on board the aircraft.
The company did this for cost cutting measures,
British Airways' money went down the tube as the wine did.
I bet those who were responsible laughed.
But not for long, I felt.
The Boston Tea Party and The Heathrow Wine Party,
What's the difference?
--Only in semantics.
