When was the last government that was competent Croydon? You just have it in for anything Tory....I prefer to comment on specific policy myself.

Anyway, I'm hardly going to cheerlead for Starmer and his bunch.....like going from the incompetent to the insane asylum.

It"s something we have in common, as i stated before, its not just the tories that annoy me but who ever is in government at the time, im no fan of starmer either, only rate him better than bungle, which isn"t saying much" If bungle is the worst pm ever, which he obviously is, and starmer cant topple him, starmer has to go!Just because someone sees how bad the CONservatives are, useless and corrupt, doesn"t mean they want starmer in - just anybody, anybody at all to get rid! We are the laughing stock of the world, we have sunk so low, and yet you still get the hat tippers, saying who else is there?Its laughable, anyway, we agree about the CONser vatives!

And what corruption is there then. Labour would have been all over it and they are silent apart from about a party or two . I donít actually think you believe there is any and under the tories you are more comfortable than ever. Maybe a touch of flagellation could be your penance for doing very nicely thank you under this government. It must be so painful not being in the half of the country on its knees. Hang on are blm in town again or is this your starting point for your penance!

One of the things the rail unions will be striking over is the loss of staff at booking offices. TFL have said this will be natural wastage and not redundancy.

With the move to a cashless society and ticket apps it is inevitable that this will happen and not just in the rail industry.

I think we are nearly at a turning point for our economy, we are not yet a cashless society but my guess is that it will be here sooner rather than later.

We have an employment shortage at the moment especially in the entry level jobs market but how long will that last before companies replace people with technology. My local Sainsbury's now only has 2 people on the tills most day.

Change is inevitable how that change is managed is another matter. I doubt the unions have the foresight to mange that process with the bosses instead I expect they will continue to dig their heels until it is too late for their members.

Every time they strike they just motivate management and the government to look for alternatives.

 


One more point

Yes, it's happened to the dockers, printers, miners, steelworkers, etc.
Without getting too science fiction it can only be a matter of time before robot technology becomes more affordable and replaces many service jobs and in time more skilled jobs will follow.

I note that to date not a single Labour "high up" has come out against the rail strikes!
They make a few noises but basically say that the Government should negotiate better and that in fact the Cons want it to create division.
I doubt that they want it but I hope that as next week causes chaos that they come out and say it how it is.
That is that workers on £44k a year plus some dreadful archaic working practises (that they don't want to lose) are holding the general public to ransom when the money could be spent better elsewhere.
Labour are utterly useless at the moment and that is from me who is a staunch Tory!
They even backed Geist yesterday without realising what he had resigned about - a pretty unfathomable resignation I might add - given that Boris wanted to keep import duty on steel to try and sell more British steel.
Utterly useless tw***s!

Sir Keir said he didn"t want to see the rail strikes at pmq"s, and accused bungle of wanting them to cause division, which is probably true.

Right. Same reason Jim Callaghan cunningly engineered the winter of discontent.

Wish I'd missed it. A truly miserable time.
