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?Posted to The Big Room by Simon Brunning at May 24, 2005 09:10 AM
