It’s Good Friday, and what’s good about it is that I slept for nine and a half hours last night. Went to bed with a classic stress headache, woke up with the end of one, but felt good about being on strike.
Yes, I’m on strike. At the end of yesterday’s Rise and Shine we walked out in sympathy with our ASLEF brothers and sisters. I think it was the realisation of a militant tendency in myself which I have been encouraging over the past few months, knowing that it is the path to my own particular brand of enlightenment.
I’m sure that once the management meet our demands we’ll be back to finish off the final week of the show – it’s been a blast. But it is nice to have a three day weekend in praise of the dead rabbi, Jesus, and his unfortunate death by torture 2,000 years ago.
Now listen to the song we wrote yesterday, co-written and sung by the indomitable Danny “Peruvian Socialist Chocolate Hat” Brittain and his left wing army of reds.
