At last, the press discovers the plight of us Brighton commuters
Most newspapers blame the RMT union for the Southern rail dispute, but the company is criticised too as the press calls on the goverment to intervene
As the Southern rail strike enters its second day, I can do no more than sympathise from afar with the suffering commuters.
I am away for the summer until next month. Then I will return to my Brighton home and I expect to be suffering too because there is no sign of an end to this long-running and bitter dispute.
“The real issue for the union is keeping jobs that are redundant, entrenching union power and putting all rail companies on notice that the RMT has no intention of letting the train operators introduce reforms that do away with old and restrictive practices. It is pure old-fashioned Luddism.”
