Plus ça change

We ended last year with a tube drivers’ strike which I described as being “A blatantly political Boxing Day tube strike” and now we hear that ASLEF are to balot their members on industrial action on the wedding day of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Just like the FBU calling a strike on the 5th of November this action would be completely counter-productive and alienate millions of people.  This proposed action has little to do with Bank Holiday pay and much to do with putting Boris under political pressure.
