I have to be at work on time tomorrow then?
I am amazed - not once during the strike did i hear the phrase "bulldog spirit" or "pulling together like during the blitz".
There was plenty of "Crow Is Trotskyist Ultra-Fiend" and "RMT Launch Tube Jihad" though. So that was fun.
Also in the Sun today there was a great picture of a jubilant soldier on his way out of Basra.
I couldn't help feeling that he'd be a lot less jubilant if he knew that he was going to get deployed to Afghanistan in a few months...

"I've been stood here for five minutes and already a bus has gone past with no-one able to get on."
Good god. It must have been EXACTLY what it was like in the blitz and/or trenches.
all of them looking like they'd been unable to get into work due to the tube strike. Lazy fucks.
"ooh fighting hitler's too hard today lets go to the pub instead"
I doff my cap to you sirs.
mention that there was "fighting in the streets" as everyone tried to get on buses. really? REALLY?
10 times more important, 10 times more dramatic and 10 times more likely to invoke "dunkirk spirit" if it happens in London.
Get over yourself London. Yes all of it.
as you northeners, and thus are able to see 10x as many consequences to everything that happens.
and if you had no public transport it would still be possible to walk end to end twice in the time it would take me to walk to my office...
what I mean. Surely.
I'm sure you're right about the nature of the news reporting but I really don't listen/watch/read the news that much these days.
you'd get mugged so many times they'd chop your legs off just for something to take and sell down't pub.
They have a job selling fresh body parts
"Mr Kay said: "I just got talking to Peter and he offered me a lift - this is what happens during a Tube strike, it brings out the wartime spirit."
Someone bomb this loser in the face.
they might have been spies. Wartime spirit and all that.
and some nylon stockings. Wartime etc.
between my brain and fingers.
from reading your posts.
when a man and woman love each other very much...
peter's porsche probably has two seats and all..
