http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/london/8302023.stm Lazy, overpaid, ungrateful. These are some of the words I am allowed to write about them. The ones I'd like to use would get me banned. They already earn way more than they deserve for "driving" trains that cannot crash. They have been offered 1.5% more money now and inflation + 0.5% in April next year. But this is clearly not enough for them. Sometimes I wish we could just shut the Tube and sack the lot of them. Make them go work in the real world where pay rises of any sort right now are difficult to come by. Once again the Unions ask for the frankly unbelievable and undefendable and make the rest of us suffer. I hate them.
