Our transport system has come up trumps as the best public system in the world. I heard this news tidbit about 2 seconds before the one on the transport strike. Talk about timing!
Granted it is the excellent links and the availability of different types of transport that makes the country accessible to one and all. But the frequent strikes do nothing to endear those that run this transport system of ours. Often, we can’t help thinking ‘oh grow up!’ when we hear of yet another transport strike.
Their idea of timing hasn’t escaped me either – Christmas, New Year, Bank Holiday weekends, you name a holiday weekend, you can be assured that there would be a strike on somewhere.
If only these people would let go of their habit of downing tools and going on strike at the drop of a hat, then our world would be a much better place.
