from @UVWunion, 20 JAN 2017: “We have beaten Harrods, the richest and most prestigious department store in the world! 100% of the service charge will now go to staff! Thank you to everyone for your support and a big congratulations to the resilience and courage of our members, the Harrods restaurant workers, who have achieved this victory by joining United Voices of the World, getting organised and standing up to their employer’s outrageous practices.

Hidden cameras, mass sackings and a climate of fear: Life as a Harrods restaurant worker… That poor old Al-Thani family, possibly one of the richest in the world as the royal family of Qatar, are short of cash as owning most of London’s most expensive properties is a tight business. Of course, profiting from owning Harrods isn’t easy. So why shouldn’t they keep the 12.5% service charge added to the Harrods restaurant bills for their own profit?
After all, their low-paid workers would only waste it on unaffordable housing and food. (more…)
UPDATED JAN 10: Protesters from the United Voices of the World Union (UVW), workers and sympathisers blockaded Harrods and Brompton Road to draw attention to the fact that the service charge added to Harrods restaurant bills went in to the pockets of the owners, the Qatari royal family, not to the waiters and restaurant staff.
Harrods – and its Qatari royal owners – continue to take a fine beating across the international media for allowing this: more protests are being planned… (more…)
Filthy rich greedy bastard Duke of Westminster dead! Party was intended in Belgrave Square SW1 on day of his funeral but they buried the cunt without telling us when!
More (deceased) Duke of Westminster fun here
Class War made television history today with Adam Clifford’s interview on the BBC’s flagship Daily Politics programme, providing the only working class revolutionary voice in an otherwise boring election campaign.
Interviewed by Andrew Neil, Adam drew attention to the “hyper-gentrification” of London and called on the “mob to rise up” against their masters. Would it be violent? You bet it would!
He added: “I embrace working class culture and I think that we’re great. Working class people know that they’re basically slaves. So let the people rise! I don’t know if they’ll be violent.”
A befuddled Stanley Johnson, dad of London mayor Boris Johnson, voiced his agreement for the abolition of public schools and went on to admire Adam’s red dress.
Adam will attempt to canvass Buckingham Palace, which is in his constituency, on Wednesday at midday at the launch of Class War’s election manifesto.
Class War’s candidate for the Cities of London and Westminster, Adam Clifford, will be knocking on the front door of Buckingham Palace next week to inspire revolt against the monarchy within the Queen’s staff.
Class War’s six-point manifesto demands the abolition of the monarchy.
Bring back the gallows and the block to the Tower of London! Free the people from these royal parasites!
