There’s no point my returning to the Blogosphere if I don’t express an opinion on something topical or controversial, so let’s get down to business.
Veteran readers may not be surprised by my admission that I am not a huge fan of trade unions, and Unite’s recent performance has done nothing to endear me.
I recall the BBC’s Nick Robinson making a comment at Christmas that the real issue at stake is a political one and it all comes down to power. It might be easy to disagree with him if Unite were running an honest campaign about the “plight” of the cabin crew, but all I’ve seen over the last couple of weeks are some Communists and an American gangster making increasingly deluded statements.
If this post is to be believed, there is very little truth in the Unite campaign. Perhaps that’s because in comparison with everyone else the cabin crew have nothing to complain about.
