Strikes still on

Driving home for Xmas

Well the Piccadilly Line drivers won't be driving you home for Xmas tomorrow as that 24 hour strike is still on for Xmas Eve, although apparently a tube service to Heathrow will run every eight minutes.

According to
The Standard: "LU said there are "behind the scenes moves" taking place today to try and prevent tomorrow's strike.

"Steve Grant, Aslef London district secretary, said: "There are no new meetings planned for today and as far as we are concerned tomorrow's strike is going ahead."

Fantastic. I'm sorry but I really have no sympathy for this strike. If a driver travels through red signals several times surely he deserves to be demoted not have all his mates striking in protest.

Also the whole network looks like it will be down on New Year's Eve still too.

In the meantime me, Geoff and Neil are having Xmas bevvies tonight with their friends Chris and Stephen. We're doing a Secret Santa or "Confidentially Clause" as Geoff and Frank Skinner now call it and apparently there's a Mind The Gap thong in the mix. I got one as a leaving pressie and there's only so many Mind The Gap thongs a gal can have so I'm really hoping one of the guys gets it.
