Happy Mondays

Strike for sacked tube workers & Alfie Moon for Mayor

Well, there will be a strike currently planned for
March 12th, for the tube workers known as the Farringdon Five who were "unfairly dismissed" after over 100 beer cans were found in their messy mess room.

According to The Scotsman (the only place where I can find the story on the net at the moment): "Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union employed by Metronet have backed a campaign of industrial action by five to one, raising the prospect of the biggest walkout on the Tube for more than 18 months."

Good-oh, now if Alfie Moon from EastEnders were mayor he'd be"aving nun of this". (Moon is apparently Londoners' third choice for mayor after Richard Branson, then Ken Livingstone - goodness knows which Londoners were asked this question) It would be a case of a clip round the ear and being told to get upstairs and stop being such an idiot. Or he'd have a little lock in with Bob Crow, leader of the RMT and drunkenly agree to call the whole thing off over a game of poker.

For more on the strike including times and lines that may be effected, check out The Evening Standard.
