    DOOM: any form of rail journey over the jubilee weekend

    And no doubt the lot at TfL will join in too.

    Railway workers vote overwhelmingly in favour of national strike

    RMT workers at Network Rail and 15 operators back industrial action in coming weeks.

    Railway workers have voted overwhelmingly to strike in a bitter dispute over jobs, pay and conditions, threatening massive disruption to the network in the coming weeks.

    Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) at Network Rail and 15 train operators backed launching a campaign of industrial action.

    The union’s leaders will now decide when to call strikes, which will bring huge parts of the network to a standstill. The union said it was the biggest endorsement for industrial action by railway workers since privatisation.

    The union will now be demanding urgent talks with Network Rail and the 15 train operating companies.

    To add to your DOOM the government plan to push through a bill to ban workers on important infrastructure e.g. rail from striking.

    If they do then all the unions will ballot their members for strike action as they feel that the right to assembly is under threat.

      Train travel on bank holidays is always dodgy anyway, like on a Sunday, in my experience. Keep away.

        It's like 1974 all over again - inept Tory government, prices out of control, strikes, and Labour will be blamed for 50 years to come because of the successful spin by the Express/Sun/Telegraph/Mail, and other media sources owned/run by the right.

          Some of us aren't that old.

            Tory miners & electricity workers striking then?

              Tory failures resulting in miners unable to afford to feed their families or heat their houses. What else can a worker do when the government ignores them?

              But that's not the narrative you've been told to believe.

                Are there any Tory miners?

                  If you are unable to travel to celebrate the Queen's jubilee just remember that the royal family have nothing but contempt for each and every one of us and it won't seem so bad.
