After the early morning picket at Bilston Glen, which was without incident, or any pushes, we set off for the journey home. Our visit was not an entire waste of time because at least the number of scabs hasn’t gone up as the NCB were hoping for, and we’ve all gained some valuable experience. We need real mass pickets to really make a difference to this strike and that means trying to get to the majority of men who are sitting on their arses at home out onto the picket lines. More importantly we need to make sure we aim our pickets at the right targets and just now that means steelworks.
Anyway, its nice to be back home with the family.
