We have it on the best possible authority – a BBC story – that its journalists (for such they style themselves) are thinking of a 24 hour strike some time in February unless the plans for eight compulsory redundancies (only eight?) are scrapped.
All I can say is: go, go, go. Go out on strike. Why stop at 24 hours? Why not make it a week, a month, a year? Or, perhaps, keep on striking until they double, treble and multiply by ten those compulsory redundancies, starting from the top.
Here is another thought: if the BBC stays out on a strike of indefinite length, can all those benighted licence-holders claim part of their money back?
