Friday 23 December 2011

Well, that’s that, no more work until New Year’s Day. 2011 has been a difficult year for me on a personal level, one way or another I’ve lost a number of people I was close to and various ambitions I had at the start of the year remain unfulfilled. I can only hope that 2012 is a little less fraught and that I can devote more time to writing.

London has been very quiet this week and will probably be even quieter next. The courts threw out LUL’s attempt to block the Boxing Day strike and while I hope something can be sorted out round the negotiating table today somehow I doubt it, no matter what happens on Monday LUL senior managers’ jobs will be secure and they will still be drawing their huge salaries.

Anyway, a merry Christmas to all and a happy New Year, stay home Boxing Day.


  1. Have you noticed your starring role in the High Court's judgment:

    a. 9 December 2011 – a blogger responsible for the blog "ASLEF shrugged" recording his reticence to vote in a ballot which did not affect him as he was not due to be working on the day of the strike. at paragraph [8]

  2. Thank you for your entertaining blog and wishing you all the best for 2012

  3. Ooh, fame at last for you!

    Stay at home on Boxing Day? Not a chance. Bashing whatever network TfL will run!

  4. Thank you for your entertaining blog, which I've enjoyed reading since the beginning...

    I hope that 2012 brings all of what you need, and at least some of what you want...
