Tube Strike


The tube strike in London is a pain to all travellers.  The fact that they have a Union Leader, Bob Crow, who suns himself in the Caribbean while the strike approaches and lives in a council house on subsidised rent when he earns a 6 figure salary shows how these people try to hold the country to ransom even though they are not democratically elected as representatives of the rest of us.  The Tube is run as a Cartel.  No competition.  However I digress. Richard  Westcote reporting on tube strike for the BBC did not mention the fact that their would be no enforced redundancies. He mentioned 750 redundancies but painted the picture that this would mean people would be forced into unemployment.  Two sides to every story and the News media should give both sides.
