KEEP LONDON MOVING … I didn’t know the RMT still existed, I thought Thatcher had abolished it as obsolete, but then I only drive everywhere as this is England, and I don’t live on the RMT’s road.

I learn from a little birdle that flew in here that the “RMT”, whatever that may be (it is “the Restraint of Mobile Transport“?) is trying to not drive Under “Ground Trains” in London and other places which have these strange things. (Great logo, guys! Really keep things moving, don’t you. Dynaimic logo, mobile! “Serving…”, “Working towards…”, Fascism, swastikas, roundels, movement, Wolfe-Olins, corporate-ID, Olympics, etc.)

Here is some stuff about how individuals could help out. I don’t know anything about this lot but if people are prepared to fight nationalised bastards who think they control stuff that people pay for, and think they can with-hold stuff agreed on contract, say via season-tickets or Oyster cards, then this sort of fightback ought to be promoted and publicised.

Subject: Keep London Moving campaign

Dear friends 

London has been spared a pointless Underground strike this weekend by the RMT, however we can be sure that the threat of another strike is inevitable.

 We have had enough of these incessant threats of strikes and have decided it is time it is time to do something about it. 

Today, we are launching our Keep London Moving campaign seeking volunteers to step in to help run the Underground in the event of a future strike. We believe that if we can provide enough volunteers wishing to keep the Tube operating during the next strike, Transport for London and the unions will not be able to ignore us. 

We believe that a few thousand volunteers could – in theory – be enough to maintain a service on the Underground if the unions went on strike. We hope that the volunteers will never be needed and hope that extreme left-wing unions will be deterred by the presence of such a citizens’ campaign. 

This is an opportunity for Londoners to demonstrate their annoyance with the unions, TfL and appeasing politicians. I hope you personally will join our campaign and encourage your readers to do so.  You can sign up at www.keeplondonmoving.org. If you wish to display your support you can use this logo: http://www.keeplondonmoving.org/ 

It goes without saying that this is an independent campaign, funded by private donations and has no association with TfL, London Underground or any mayoral candidate. 

I hope you will join us.

 Best wishes 

Shane

I could not drive a Tube train if you paid me (well, i could but H&SE-Nazis would not let me I am sure) but this is in itself interesting: people are beginning to think about the possibility of not relying on the Stalino-Unionist-Laborg-Salariat to run things in their lives for them. Shades of 1979? I hope so but I don’t think so. Not yet. The British have to sink much, much further down into the noisome cesspool of socialism, before they will realise what a shower it is.

  3. Well it’s very noble, but it’s rather futile. Whether a few kilovolunteers could run the tube network (doubtful) is beside the point, because none of them would be qualified to work the tube network. Health and Safety, you know.

    Anyone with large vehicle experience and a short induction talk could drive a bus. A rail network’s rather more difficult than that.

  4. Ian:

    It isn’t at all noble.

    The Chairman of London Underground is Ken Livingstone. The owner of London Underground is the Greater London Authority. Ken Livingstone is the Mayor of London. RMT is a private association.

    The whole thing is a blatant attempt to embarrass Ken Livingstone, who with all his faults is one of the more independent-minded and interesting people in politics. Ken is supposed to allow strike-breakers onto LU property?? Crossing picket lines?? C’mon…

    I would advise any libertarian to have nothing to do with it (or the people running it).

    Regards,

    Tony
