The school holiday is over, kids went back to school today, the roads are now back to normal, heavy and congested traffic everywhere.
The past six weeks have been a bless, not much traffic, not too many 4x4 cars driven by mothers doing the school run, actually the traffic has been bad for the last few days as we had a strike by the London Underground Network, this caused chaos all over London as many people tried to use the buses instead which became almost impossible to use, other people resorted to using their cars which caused the traffic to become heavy.
While I sympathise with hard working people such as the people that run the underground system, I cant help feeling that when they do strike they hold the whole city to ransom. One person I heard comment on this on the Radio, he compared the people that organized the strike with the terrorists that blew up trains and buses 2 years ago in London and brought the transport system to a halt, I think he was right, this is a democratic country that gives people the right to strike but it is just wrong for some strikes to take place, the public has nothing to do with this, some years ago the Fire Services had a strike and caused major problems, the government then had to use the army to distinguish fires while Fire men sat in their working place drinking tea and doing nothing, I mean it is common sense, public services should not strike, it is wrong, it makes the public suffer and endangers many lives.
I will not go as far as saying that public service providers should be banned from having a strike, this is a right that was given to them many years ago but they themselves know its wrong and should find other means of protesting.
