Good morning, readers. It’s 11:30am here in London and that massive, multi-union strike I told you about the other day is now underway. My family had planned to visit Westminster today, but it’s off the table now. I get enough of the Big Labor mob scene back in the States. No need to expose the kids to it during their vacation.
Speaking of kids, hundreds of thousands of them have been abandoned by their public union teachers who refuse to contribute a smidge more to their pensions like most every one of their private-sector counterparts: “More than half of schools in England are closed or partially closed as hundreds of thousands of public sector workers strike over pension changes. The government said information from 75% of its 21,500 state schools showed only a third would remain fully open.”
Also AWOL: 90 percent of the London police force. And airports are bracing for long delays and reduced security manpower.
