I've never seen so many strikes or industrial action as I have in the last few months. About a month ago the tube drivers went on strike for about 2 days grinding all transportation into London to halt. A few key lines were in operation but it was mainly buses and trains that were in use.
This week the postal workers have gone on strike preventing the delivery of any mail for the foreseeable future. This poses a little bit of a problem for me as I have switched bank accounts and was expecting my new card day now and this may cause an issue. But more importantly I bought a camera case for my new camera and now that won't be coming in for a while.
