Station staff discovered on the strike days that the BTP turn up much more promptly to a picket line than they do to an assault on staff. At least some of them have the good grace to look embarrassed when they turn up just because LUL management told their bosses to tell them to.
Apparently, the plods who visited the Stockwell picket went away clutching RMT leaflets and knowing a lot more about the justice of our case. Still, the words “Stockwell”, “police” and “justice” don’t sit together too well. Just ask the family of Jean Charles de Menezes.
