Gewerkschaftler suggested this recently:

“I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.”

Any contributions this week?

Interesting that it’s Tilbury: one of the largest container ports in the UK, but now almost entirely mechanised and with high multi-generational unemployment – so two reasons for Amazon to be there.

It is great to see Amazon being unionised slowly but surely.

And Felixstowe, the biggest container port, is going to strike for eight days.
