Our friends in red.
So, who will be making your Christmas memorable?
If you live in the south it will be Southern Rail. They will be on strike until 2018 (or longer).
If you intend to send cards or gifts through the post, then The Post office will definitely make your Christmas merry. At their busiest time of year they will possibly be 'sacks down' to ensure your post doesn't arrive until somewhere in 2017.
If you live in Derby, your rubbish will not be collected for around a month, ensuring those wonderful piles of rat infested, rotting, Turkey remains will be littered along their pavements. Other areas might well follow their example.
If you live in London, I wouldn't rely on the Tube running. Those drivers like a quiet and peaceful holiday just like everyone else.
If the Bernard Matthews factory was to go on strike, it would be the cherry on the cake.
If your Christmas will be unaffected by some Trade Union or other, think yourself very very lucky.
