Industrial Action by UK Prison Officers

The ever-reliable BBC reports on industrial action taken by Prison Officers in the UK. The national strike is concerned with pay and conditions.

This is the latest unrest in public services in the UK. A growing number of public services are facing job losses and experiencing vast amounts of change. Together with the pressures that the private sector are experiencing, I am left wondering what will happen to the UK economy and employment, in the future?

The private Sector are facing job losses and employees are facing a shortage of full-time, permanent employment. There has been an increase in part-time and temporary work. Employees in both sectors have experienced an increase in over-time hours. It has recently been reported that the divide between rich and poor in the UK has widened.

Is the population of the UK destined to become "benefit-dependant", unemployed (or under employed) and seeking new ways to activate their leisure time? Or will the UK become a nation of entrepreneurs, seeking to stimulate economic growth in original areas?

If this is the case, what are the areas where business can thrive and grow? My money is on the arts and sport. Traditionally seen as economically unviable, these areas contribute to social inclusion, both have potent links with health and the arts (in particular) encourage creative thought, which is useful to business, particularly now as the work place is bogged down with governmental red-tape. If there is a growth in peoples' leisure time, then meeting this demand would, naturally, be financially lucrative.

Of course, the Internet is another potential source of income and economic growth. However, can electronic media sustain the kind of workforce that, traditionally the Industrial Sector and, more recently, the Service Industries have employed? Only time will tell....

Vespers (10)

very nearly morning
you are
sleeping

gravity
refashions dream
into grainy daylight

the point is
is not
love

thy
neighbor or
thyself in her

in him as
further self
containment

quiet
exacts whispers
to feed itself

thus poise overtakes
the soft
moment

selfing
furnished play
in new arrangements

it is morning
repeatedly pale
convergence

of
what happened
that did not

preferring time tables
flexible and
condensed

maybe
the hurt
of daylight lifts

thus and perhaps
can be
remade

into
hushed gentling
as in plant

life made strong
as flexible
flowers

outlast
lightning and
accompanying noise set

to convene mid-
brain to
be

held
and spoken
to nearby haloes

Crystalize

This is a technique I'm going to call Crystalising or Crystalization, that is somewhere between "Fractal Art" and "Cloning".

Plant a flag

The heads of state have decided to plant a flag on the north pole. To sustain the claim to the northern pole of the earth magnetic field. This action supports the ongoing War On Peace, however it requires a budget raise.

Your opinion is valued. Your opinion will be reflected in the one-liners supporting the upcoming elections.
Plant a flag to claim resources
yes, the flag is sufficient to support the claim
yes, but adding a fence would help
yes, but only if we issue north pole postal stamps too
yes, we have to send colonists to defend the flag
yes, I trust my government. They will spend the budget wisely
no, I am from another dimension. please explain what a flag has to do with a magnetic field

New Lining

Shut my eyelids; the lights are blinding
And crashing into my fuzzy outline.
Destroying vessels of time with poor timing,
I will open wide and inhale the new lining.

should the War On Peace (WOP) be dirty or clean?

heads of state
the heads of state are contemplating about the ongoing WOP. Should WOP be dirty or clean? Your opinion is valued. Your opinion will be reflected in the one-liners supporting the upcoming elections.
should the War On Peace (WOP) be dirty or clean?
yes i agree WOP is indigenous to mankind. However we are civilized now and we should agree on rules.
yes I agree we are civilized. And WOP is only indigenous to other mankinds. We should force rules upon them.
yes I trust my government. They will choose wisely.
no, I am from an other dimension, please explain the concept of War On Peace

what I would give I would give water in a glass
and I would watch you take it I would watch
what happens when you take the water
I would hold in my heart how you were
with water I would try never to think
just to be there while you
I would try never to relax or to work
I would try to be invisible
I would be invisible
I would believe you and the water
I would be the pores receiving water
I would make the pronoun go away
