Leading a team within the NHS I’m sure you can imagine that several of my staff are members of one comradely organisation or another. Which the TUC would naturally regard as admirable.
But the ramifications of suggesting to the brothers and sisters that they work solidly throughout their contracted hours for the day could have been quite amusing.
Assuming I could survive the building of barricades and ensuing ‘La Semaine sanglante’ it would have been fun.
Possibly not much, but almost enough to have altered my personal plans by 24 hours.
