Today is the first day of a planned 48 hour strike by London's beleaguered tube drivers. This will put London into chaos and affect millions of honest hard working commuters trying to get in to work and try to keep the economy ticking along.
RMT union boss Bob stone the Crow who works part time as an extra on Al Murray's happy hour has said that the tube drivers have tried everything to avoid this course of action. Big Bob Says " I don't think many of my drivers can actually read and as such are completely unaware of the financial meltdown facing the country. They trust my judgement as an honest sort of geezer and if I tell them to strike they normally step into line."
London Mayor Boris Johnson had stepped in at the last minute to try to and broker a peace settlement. However when he pointed out that the they were all a bunch of bluthering idiots who ought to think themselves lucky earning 40k a year for basically sitting on their arses all day going round in circles the talks broke down.
