I must admit I hadn't been following this until the big strike last week: Glasgow strike: union told it faces legal action over 'illegal pickets' Absolutely brilliant in so many ways - women standing up - empowerment through strike action - flying pickets bringing out other workers - "carnival atmosphere" - etc. Despite all that, I don't think it's unreasonable to ask why Glasgow? and why now? (as a member of the GMB I'm aware they have a pretty shitty history on this score) but there's fair comment/criticism and then there's this: GMB – a Cockney Clique Which includes the following passages: Wolfson is Rhea Wolfson, the GMB officer for the strikers and a prominent Jewish member of the Labour Party. It goes on: Just fucking hell!
