The public sector 'workers' strike

Well that is strike day over, so what horrors did a day without public sector 'workers' unleash? Err, not many. Some traffic congestion up north as the Mersey Tunnels in Liverpool, the Metro on Tyneside and Glasgow's subway network all closed plus buses and rail in Northern Ireland. A few libraries and swimming pools didn't open and that was about it. Nothing spectacular. My personal interaction with government was actually higher than normal as I had to pay the protection money tax on my car today, an unpleasantness which was completely unaffected by this walkout.
