Doctors are going on strike tomorrow - or are they?  It seems many may be suffering a crisis of confidence in the justness of their cause.  I remember going on strike for several weeks some years ago when I was a member of the National Union of Journalists.  It was an extremely painful time and, interestingly, I can still recall a conversation I had at the time with my local GP and friend. 

 

While accepting why I had felt it necessary to join the strike action, he said, simply: " But of course I could never go on strike because of my patients....."  How times change!

 

Greece is in all sorts of financial bother which I don't begin to understand fully.   But isn't it the case that we do watch and worry far more about tricky situations in countries which we know and love from our happy holidays there.  Come on Greece, get it sorted! And hopefully Mr B and I will add a little something to your economy in the near future.....
