Ominous overture...

No matter what the BBC decide to ignore and what to 'big-up' to try to help Crash Gordon, the Unions simply won't play ball: Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services Union (one of Britain’s biggest trade unions), has said that Gordon Brown's Labour are "the worst government in the history of this country". He called for unions to take "united industrial action" as a last resort to defend jobs, pensions and services.[DT]

In scenes reminiscent of union rallies of the 60s and 70s, teachers chanted "the workers, united, will never be defeated" as they gave Mr Serwotka a standing ovation.

The overture to the main composition: coordinated campaigns and strikes...and more strikes, for whoever forms the next administration of the UK.

Update: Iain Martin has more: NUT Gets Ready to Go Nuts. "It looks as though the National Union of Teachers (NUT) is warming up to go over the top in the full-blown style of the union protests of the ’80s."
