Strike off

Apparently there’s a new offer, so the unions have postponed next week’s strike. We await the details, but I suspect minor revisions to CAB2011.

Meanwhile you have to hand it to Ed Milliband. What an easy win: he gets the chance to prove to the Daily Mail that he’s tough on strikes, he gets to sound magisterially fair minded (“David Cameron deserves to be heard”), and within a matter of hours his call to cancel the strike is answered! You get the feeling that we are pawns in a much bigger game.
