If you have tears, prepare to shed them now...

From the Unite website:

"Unite, the UK’s largest union, is preparing to ballot its members at the Guardian Print Centre (GPC) for industrial action over the company’s proposals to make a quarter of the staff redundant.

Industrial action at GPC, based in London's Docklands, would halt the printing of the Guardian newspaper in the south of England".

What will the latte left do if its house journal is printed by scabs?

My pet stoat Algernon and I were taking turns to read Moliere's 'Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme' to each other in the original Finnish while our dinner of squirrel pie gently simmered on the shower curtain when much to our surprise there was a knock on the front door.

It was Nether Wallop's finest - PC Trotter of the Hampshire Constabulary.

'Avoid morphine old chap', he said. 'Dreadfully constipating if you get my drift'.

'Righty ho!' I said and kicked him up the arse.

Some people!

What they do every time one of their own is found wanting. Look the other way...

PNW - Indeed.

Julia - And as the old saw goes, 'Never work for a liberal newspaper, they'll sack you on Christmas Eve'.

Where would all those non-jobs be advertised?

Could be a double win, could it not?

Exactly, Croydonian. As Henry Kissinger said during the Iran-Iraq conflict: "it's a shame they can't both lose." This may well engender that happy outcome.
