Re: Tube Strike Stories

Only for 2 days? That's not too bad. In Los Angeles a few years ago, our MTA went on a strike that lasted months.

I'm sure it'll be back to its usual half-arsed service by then.

For those non-Brits who haven't heard it, London Underground (NSFW if you don't have earphones)
isnt that song the best part of any strike?

that and the TV going on on & on about, like people outside of London gives a damm, somehow we all manage to get to work without a fancy tube system.

Re: Tube Strike Stories

People inside London don't give a damn either, plenty of ways to get around apart from the underground.

I only feel sorry for those England fans who weren't able to get to Wembley stadium to see their country qualify for next year's world cup final. Still a pretty good turn out though. 6-0 win. YEAH!

Re: Tube Strike Stories

Maybe I'm missing something (as usual ) but what's the point of a strike when the end point is planned in advance? Aren't all strikes supposed to last until one side gives in?
