Monday marked 666 days since the MFB filed to terminate the Operational Staffing agreement and it is only fitting that we take time to remember the evil actions which were perpetrated on that day. The UFU would like to note that we are in no way making a comparison between the MFB and the Devil because, as popular culture has shown us, when you do a deal with the Devil he honours his commitment.
