How many 'normal' people would go up and shout obscenities at others in public? Most who disagree just get on with things, knowing it's not worth arguing with people who are incapable of reason. Would hardly call your observations a metric of what people think.Have to agree here.
I’ve intentionally been walking up and down the train more often than usual both before and after the strikes, speaking with passengers about the industrial action (not the politics - but what to expect service wise, what’s running etc).
I’ve not had a single person give me any grief at all, and even had a pensioner go out of her way to come up to me whilst at a station and say “Good luck for tomorrow”
