Ok, I do indeed stand corrected. is it any wonder people laugh at trots? I'm no theorist, and I sure wouldn't claim to know what all socialists are supposed to get up to but to a simple soul like me that attitude, "strike whenever possible" seems a pretty good way to polarise workers into the arms of the tories. Not only is confrontation at all costs plainly tactical nonsense it's strategically utterly inept to seek strikes as an end in themselves. Unless you're a vanguard party trying to build membership and paper sales with zero regard for anything else, I s'pose.
