As we all know by now, there will be une autre grève - another strike - next Thursday.
And, given the five mile tailbacks many of us had to endure when we fucked off to Newry yesterday, I thought maybe next time, let's go all out. Let's make a proper trip of it.
Why not France, I thought. Home of Champagne, Malbec, and ooh, it's Beaujolais Nouveau time round about now too! Think of all the Brie and runny Camembert we can pick up for our festive entertaining!
It's time for the ultimate public sector Booze Cruise!
Attention, Cherbourg, les fonctionnaires viennent.PS: Private Sector: No torpedoes now. Season of Goodwill and all that.
