Thanks to WFH neither threats by Mayor Khan or striking Tube drivers can stop driverless trains. At last London will get off its knees and take on the bullies.

Probably the worst of the modern day politicians is Sadiq Khan. He doesn’t appear to believe in anything except his own survival, can’t get anything done because he has so little personal drive and in the May election for London Mayor almost lost to a Conservative candidate that the Conservatives had written off.
Now Boris has presented him the political bill for his own ineptitude. Due to Covid virtually nobody has been using the Tube network for the past year yet there has been little or no reduction in the network. The effect unbelievably is the Treasury- that’s us taxpaying mugs- have had to chip in £3billion to keep empty Tube trains running and a lot of people sitting around doing nothing.

In order to survive the Transport for London (TfL) network needed another £1billion to keep the wheels turning until December and they have just learned the price of that money; they have to cut costs by £300million, cut the ludicrous over generous pensions and at long last start planning to introduce driverless trains.
Driverless trains is not a new idea for London as it already has the Docklands Light Railway. No injuries, no crashes. Nothing to report. Nothing to see.
But Khan, being the idiot that he is, says he will fight the idea. And he has the support of guess who? Yes, correct. Its our old Lefty chum Mick Lynch the RMT General secretary whose members are…….hugely overpaid Tube drivers.
This is what he says;” Driverless trains were unwanted, unaffordable and unsafe.”
None of that is true but when did that ever matter to a trade union leader. What is true is the pay of Tube drivers is an absolute scandal and the reason they “earn” so much for going along a straight track in the dark is the threat by the RMT that unless they are paid exorbitantly for work that is no longer needed they will go on strike and cripple the capital.

Thanks to WFH that is an empty threat. Our resilient nation proves every day that a lot of we can achieve without taking a train or tube every day.
Of course a strike would be inconvenient but the days of us collapsing to our knees in the face of lefty bullies are over.
Do your worst Mick you will no longer hurt us. My advice is to stop threatening and start negotiating redundancy terms for your members.
They will thank you for the pay-offs. They will not thank you for spending months on the picket line with only the Morning Star reporting your members’ poverty. The game is up. Covid killed your one big threat.
