RCN asking their members to back industrial action in September.

BMA likely to follow suit. Currently asking hospital doctors to reject extra-contractual work unless paid at reasonable rate. Junior doctors will likely vote to withdraw all cover, including emergency cover. Consultants will probably vote to withdraw all but emergency care. Several militant doctors elected to council and BMA may have finally grown some teeth.

You wonder just how many other industries will see something similar in the coming weeks.

When was the last time we seen flying pickets in the UK?

Personally I'm delighted workers finally seem to be remembering how our forefathers gained better pay and conditions.

Flying pickets are illegal now I think.

They released Strike Again in 2015, but to be honest they never really hit the heights again after Only You
