What they say

Stephen Archer is a speaker with great charisma. By using illustrations and personal experiences and not being afraid to share his own point of view of the current situation and who is to blame for it, he engages the whole audience, at the same time helping us all to understand the credit crunch a little better.

A return to 1970′s militancy will be very sad

“A crow bar is defined as ‘a strong, blunt instrument used to apply great leverage’ .

It would seem that the RMT members are content to follow such an instrument as their union leader Bob Crow. This strike is ostensibly about staffing levels, in ticket offices –though the union leader describes ticket office staffing as a safety issue. Are ticketing machines dangerous now?

Employees and the union must accept that management must within reason be free to make changes to the efficiency of the operation. To stop millions of Londoners reaching work over such an issue is unreasonable. With herd like obedience the RMT members seem to be following this later day Fred Kite into a dead end of unreasonable demands and actions by the union. Of course, this is really more about politics (anti coalition government) and bolstering the power of the union. Let’s hope that this selfish appetite is quickly sated. We simply cannot afford to have unions damaging the fragile economy.
