Millions of tube passengers will have their journeys disrupted due to another Tube strike.
The strike is the second in a series led by the unions, with the first one in September
and two more planned in November.
Would you agree that a common person suffers when Leaders ignore & fail to do their job.

Yes - I agree, but where during this strike have leaders ignored - and failed to do their job?
It was a perfectly legal strike and the new coalition government of the UK, cannot be allowed to take full charge of everything without an argument thrown in its face once in awhile.

It was a bit inconvenient, not the end of the world.

The main prob is that the rail unions have rather overplayed the strike card already, which should always be a last resort, and now that they're actually likely to have something worth striking over the public are already sick of it. Crying wolf and all that. Bob Crow is a bad PR man for the unions - he's a symbol of the divisive old left and that's very much a minority view in modern London.

Cam-Clegg is the Devil.... Bob Crow is God in comparison.
