Saw this on the news: BBC News - BAA airport staff vote for strike action These lunatics want to strike because a 1% pay rise is measly? Try telling that to the millions who've had a pay freeze for years (including all the public sector who've just got a 2 year pay freeze). They want to strike because they think its not fair that a bonus of 450 quid was promised if a certain level of profitability was made, and which wasn't paid because said target wasn't reached (they fell short by 3%). Apparently the company should reward the staff for showing effort? The real clincher is that 3000 people voted to strike (50% of the membership, not the workforce) and they can shut down 7 airports. These lunatics want to ruin the UK economy at a time when its never been weaker? My view is simple - these lunatics are the single biggest threat to UK economic security, and should be treated accordingly. Putting peoples holidays and businesses at stake for no reason other than sheer bloodymindedness is wrong on every level.
