Travelling doesn't look like such a good idea this Easter as strike action is set to cause widespread disruption across the UK.
BA are all set to replace cabin crew with ground staff and are advising travellers to expect substandard services on flights which do get off the ground. A BA customer told us that on board services were never all that clever anyway. Many flights are expected to be cancelled.
Rail workers are to strike too, over what they claim are health and safety issues involving track workers terms and conditions of employment. The popular press are branding the strikers as 'greedy so and so's' but will be the first to complain about track maintenance or lack of it when another Clapham or Hatfield disaster happens.
On a positive note, the boats are still running, which is really useful if you intend travelling to France, northern Spain, Belgium, Holland or Ireland. Although how you get to your port of departure remains unclear.
Although private cars and bus services remain unaffected, the road transport authorities say it will make little difference because all the roads will be gridlocked over Easter anyway. Like they always are.
All travellers are being advised to be prepared to add up to ten years on top of normal travelling times.
More as we get it.
