    Any one out today/tmw? The largest strike yet. Here's the bumpf from the GMB and Unison. Anyone have any more links to more on-the-ground info/etc places?

    Here's the basic info from the BBC - note the use of 'hit' and other such neutral terms.

    Very good turnout apparently, reported on BBC Reporting Scotland as the biggest ever strike on equal pay in the UK.

    BBC...

    'Are you affected by 48-hour strike in Glasgow? If you are prepared to speak to the BBC about its impact on you or your family please email BBC Scotland.'

    Not, 'have you been affected by decades of unlawful discrimination?'!

    Compare the guardian headline with the actual story where it is twice emphasised that there is to be no legal action.

    Will done to those who refused to cross the pocket lines.
