Unions Were Busted Sayings: Happy Families. What's that all about, eh? A bloody busted flush is what it is. You surround yourself with other people so the night doesn't seem quite so dark.

Sayings about Unions Were Busted: I was brought up by a Victorian Grandmother. We were taught to work jolly hard. We were taught to prove yourself; we were taught self reliance; we were taught to live within our income. You were taught that cleanliness is next to Godliness. You were taught self respect.

You don't hear so much about these things these days, but they were good values and they led to tremendous improvements in the standard of living.
