The Tube shutdowns could be much greater next week if the rumoured
London
shutdown happens.


I'd love to know how they'd intend to inforce it. They haven't got enough
police to do deal with normal crime, never mind this. And putting the
army
onto the streets of mainland UK would be the kiss of death for any
government.
Not they have enough soldiers either frankly.


I think this situation is going to be the kiss of death for this
government anyway, they are in a no-win situation whatever they do. The
one thing they have got going for them is the continuing stupidity of
the labour party which still doesn't have a leader or a coherent policy
on anything.


I agree with that.

My other point is we should be calling it by it's proper name.
