Strike one

…to democracy

Following Lord Hutton’s review and the proposals to reform public sector pensions, some teachers’ unions have voted in favour of a ballot for industrial action. The media would make you believe that this is a bad thing. While refraining from stating my opinion as to whether or not I think teachers (and the public sector as a whole) should strike, surely balloting is democracy in action.
