    Weak management, they said they were on strike on that day.
    Fine the buses would be sat in garage, the drivers are loosing
    money. TOUGH.
    So are the businesses in town who actually work for a living
    with no guarantees of an income. You give these people a pay
    rise, it's Joe public who will pay it. Get to grips please.
