It was a bit of a shock tuning in to Radio 4 yesterday morning, and hearing Charles Mingus in full flight. Not a nasty shock - I'm a fan of Mingus - but I was looking for Today. I fiddled about with the tuning, looking for it, but it wasn't there.

There was a picket line at the front on my building last week. As a one-time man of the left, you might think that I'd be unhappy to cross the line. But the dispute had nothing to do with my company whatsoever, and besides, I never saw a single person on the picket line, ever. They came late, and left early. If they can't be bothered to man the picket line, why should anyone take any notice?

I had the same experience. I actually got out of the shower and went to check that it really was 7.40am on Monday morning. Very disconcerting.

PS How can there be a picket line if there is no one there?

There were banners and signs, but no people.
