Its a funny old world.
So it is the height of hypocrisy for Gordon Brown to be describing the RMT Metronet strikers as “wholly irresponsible” when they are in fact on strike to protect their pensions!? Mr Blair (oops I mean Brown) goes on to call their action “totally unnecessary” when all they are doing is following government advice. And that, by the way, is the same government who introduced the ‘Public Private Partnership’ (PPP) to the Underground to begin with.

Which has now gone bust threatening everything from safety on the Underground, to massive job losses in the maintenance sector to the wiping out of peoples pensions.
And which chancellor introduced PPP?
Nice one Gordon……
