You said it was pissing the public off. I fundamentally disagree. It’s pissing you off and, no doubt, there are others that feel that way, but there are also a great many who support them, so it’s not pissing the public off, it’s pissing off a group of people who don’t or can’t understand why they’re doing it.It's not pissing me off as I don't use trains in this country because they are expensive, dirty, overcrowded and unreliable but it's pissing plenty of other people off, I didn't say it's pissing everyone in the public off, Some people will understand why and be sympathetic and others will be pissed off especially the majority of the 80,000 that were estimated to use the trains last weekend to travel to Brighton,
There was plenty of Manchester fans pissed off when the Aslef union went on strike deliberately for the FA cup final.
I don’t use the trains much either, but it doesn’t mean I can’t empathise with those who work in that industry.
