Both my trips were during rush hour last time round…

It seems to be about two Union reps being “victimised”…I think I’ve heard that complaint somewhere before..

There’s certainly little support for strike action…..even amongst RMT members. A 64% result from the 50% of RMT members who bothered to vote…that’s just 32% of RMT members; hardly enough to close the tube.

I don’t understand this Union habit of delivering mendacious statistics when writing Press Releases; most papers reported 64% support from RMT members, whereas the real level of support is half that.

It just exposes their slender grasp of numeracy, and even more slender grasp on democratic processes.
