A not so Happy New Year thanks to striking Tube Staff

No Tubes on New Year's Eve - Evening Standard Front PageNew Year's Eve London Underground Strike on

News just in that the talks between RMT and the London Underground have broken down, so short of some miracle happening it looks like the first of two 24 hour strikes will be going ahead on New Year's Eve.

"RMT officials and Tube chiefs failed to reach a deal in the dispute through the conciliation service Acas.

"London Underground station staff have also voted for another 24-hour walkout starting on 8 January
......

"The Institute for Advanced Motorists said it thought the strike, which is due to begin at midday, could increase the risk of people drinking and driving because of the lack of public transport."

The full story is on the BBC and for all of our opinions and discussions check out yesterday's post.
