    Our place isn't open for kids but for the few not in a union or not striking.
    I, myself, will be striking mainly to support the union itself as they were a massive help to me during the recent job evaluation.

    I don't agree with your implication that I should be content to lose an income due to a strike because I'm 'probably doing OK'. Who here would be happy to lose a day's earnings through someone else's behaviour? Not many of you, I'll be bound.

    Fine. I don't agree with your implication that we should be loosing our 'gold plated pensions' - because of someone else's actions, hence the strike.

    damn those Royals for forcing a day of inaction on us to watch their weddings. I just knew that Kate wotshername was a bad un. Now she's got Liz doing it next year.

    30th November : National spend some time with your children day; do some reading, play some old fashioned games. Enjoy
