Now I know you’re trolling rather than trying to make a serious point.


Oh please. He's been "only trolling" for years.

If you’ve sacked or put in prison all the qualified railwaymen,

how are
you
going run the trains in the months (or even years) until you’ve

trained
some more?

A bit of pain is worth it in the end. Anyway, thats exactly what the
air traffic controllers thought in the 80s in the USA until Reagan fired
the
lot of them.

Then took around ten years to clear up the consequences.

Better 2 years of pain than another few decades of the **** the RMT are
currently pulling.


Who's gonna train your new train drivers after you've sacked all the
instructors?

Trolling and being sarcastic are not quite the same.

Apparently train drivers are paid the big bucks for when things go wrong not
when everything is going right. Unfortunately as has been proven time and time
again when things do go wrong they are generally about as much use as the
proverbial chocolate teapot and either the passengers end up walking along the
track or have to sit in the train until it can be towed.

Its time to admit that unlike back in the days of steam when driving a train
was a bloody hard physical job, these days its nothing more than sitting in
a moving office operating a computer and doesn't warrant 50K+ a year.
