"I want to be train driver..."
How many times did you hear little boys say that in the good old days?
Well, it seems the good old days are here again - because who needs a university degree when you can get £50,000 a year for a 35 hour weeks with 8 weeks annual leave thrown in for good measure?
My opinion of RMT leader, Bob Crowe, is about as low as a snakes belly - but you have to hand it to the guy! He's negotiated London Underground drivers a four year pay deal that sees the average train driver earning more than a newly qualified Chartered Accountant - and all without having to bother with all that faffing about with degrees and training (no pun intended!)...
So never mind the bankers' bonuses, fifty grand for driving a train is just plain bloody scandalous!
