Actually, I support the role of unions as negotiating bodies, and most especially in lower paid and cyclical industries such as aviation.

That has long been my stated position on here.

What is occurring at BASSA is an embarrassment to progressive unionism and is doing untold harm both to its members and the country as a whole.

Once again I would be grateful if you kept me personally out of your posts; by all means criticise what I post (including spelling – oops!) and engage in the debate, but it really gets rather dull if all you can do is suggest I am a BA plant – I have no professional or personal connection whatsoever with the travel industry.
