Having had experience with British unions I am quite convinced that they 
were 95% responsible for the death of the British car industry.  Because of 
the threatened strikes the BL "management"had to keep two sources of 
supplies going - a very expensive business.  I have endless stories about 
their stupidity and all personal experiences.  Get a copy of the film 
"Lucky Jim" with Ian Carmichael if your video store can get it - It was so 
true it wasn't funny!!!
