Communist Bob tried to add to our snow-related transport woe yesterday and spectacularly failed. His EDF Energy power supply workers walked out in a strike over pay. They want more, obviously.
They were joined by workers from the Unite union, who are led by the men that almost crippled British Airways over the christmas period, ruining tens of thousands of families plans that had more to do with internal union power struggles than anything about BA staff. So they use the public *and* their own members as pawns - you have to admire the chutzpah.
Judging by the fact that there were no major delays on the tube yesterday their threat that the strike would have 'serious' consequences has been shown to be all talk and no trousers. And a good thing too. Go and have your fights without using us as pawns Bob, a New Year's Resolution for you?
