If Robin Hood was alive today

Have your say

We all liked to read about Robin Hood and we all supported him when he robbed the rich and gave to the poor.

In those days there were no unions. The rich were given freedom to squeeze taxes out of the poor even if they could not afford it.

Unable to pay, some of them decided to join a thief and vagabond who resided somewhere in the forest of Sherwood.

Robin Hood and his merrie men were the forerunner which later became today’s unions.

And of course Robin Hood, if he was alive today would be sent to jail and the key thrown away.
