Strikes

How's it all going to end with all these strikes we've got the railways, Royal mail, British gas, bt and that's just the big names. While I agree money is tight where is it going to come from to increase everyone's pay

    Best not to start another political 'rant'?

    Oh damn. You are probably right, @nick615 but I do love a political argument . This probably isn't the time or place, either. But I just love a (verbal) scrap.....

    Well, that’s a relief … I had rather thought .., and hoped .., that all thoughts of a British Empire had crumbled several generations ago …

    It's not just in England. France has strikes too. In September there are strikes involving hospital workers, buses, trains, air traffic controllers, swimming pool workers and workers in child nurseries. In the summer the bin men and Post Office workers held strikes. There is a website which tells you who is on strike.

    It's increasingly easy to become a billionaire recently. Just saying...

    If you can keep your head, while those around you are losing theirs, you may not have grasped the seriousness of the situation.

    wouldn't it be easier if French air traffic control told us when they're NOT on strike?

    Yes, for us, but more fun for them not to tell us.

    Let's not forget that Boris promised us that we were building back better into a levelled-up high-wage economy.
