The threat of disruption to Britain’s energy supply loomed last night after 2,000 power plant workers across the country walked out in wildcat strikes to protest about sackings at a Total refinery in Lincolnshire.
Construction and support workers from at least seven power stations and other oil refineries from Somerset to Yorkshire walked out in sympathy over the French company’s decision to sack 650 of its contractual staff.

What will happen when Spain or some other country "Owns" our roads? Any guesses.

I actually hope (personally) theres a national blackout from these strikes. It'll get people away from mind-numbing TV and Computer Games and actually out into the community again (albeit for a brief time). But I dont think people being forced to interact with each other again will be a bad thing, hopefully some will learn to get out more and explore their surroundings instead of the 4 walls that entrap them. And as a Astronomer it would be nice to see the Milky Way without having to worry about the constant light pollution.
