Not bad as they drivers are only on some £60k per year and want more and get it by causing havoc and hassle for everyone else

its a disgrace how badly these drivers are treated! How are they supposed to survive on a poxy £50K salary a year? As for holidays, don't get me started, I mean 42 days a year is scandalously short.

I weep for these poor oppressed workers

Read two articles on this yesterday, one for, one against.

For

Against (obviously being TfL)

While I can understand the right to question the changes, and strike. The timings of all the actions are there to cause disruption, and not just to protest.

Not a supporter of the action myself, but then im not a tube driver.

There are currently no tube services running south of Elephant and Castle on the Bakerloo line. The Northern Line is not running east of Kennington. Victoria line services are not running south of Brixton. DLR south of Lewisham is seriously impacted by a lack of rails.

This disruption is likely to continue for at least the next 30 years.

Must agree that South of the river does pretty poorly for tubes etc, with the south east the worse affected

Plenty of tubes but mainly smarties and toothpaste.

I think the Tubeway Army played at the Hob once.
