As usual the children have turned up at our local school, delivered by mums and dads. There seems to be no strike action there – but I won’t mention where in case we get a bunch of pickets infesting the neighbourhood. It will be interesting to see a map showing the areas most and least affected in Britain. I would have volunteered to man a Border Agency post at a nearby airport, though my method of letting everyone leave the UK and saying No to anyone I didn’t like the look of trying to enter might not have been acceptable. It would probably have kept that border secure though.
