Independents' Day

Saturday opening – you cannot be serious!

I think John McEnroe's famous saying sums it all up. Are we now mad enough to give back all that was gained with our 2004 contract? Surely not.

It seems to me that some, when asked to jump, reply asking how high, while others describe long walks and short piers. I personally am of the latter variety.

Extend my opening hours and work Saturday mornings? Not for love nor money. Oh and of course there's no new money, is there?

Come on, people, we are supposed to be a powerful lobby. Can you honestly have any respect or trust for anybody who wants to bring in whistleblowing as part of appraisal/revalidation? I find the whole thing incredulously crass.
