Why are we always fighting automation, fighting planning, fighting growth? Why does it take so long to make decisions and then get planning approval to make progress?
10 years for a decision on London Airport and still not fully approved and still not through planning expected completion in another 10 years.
In the UK, we cannot get Trade Union agreement to have a train driver close a door. Disruptive Striking and insisting that an additional person is required instead of addressing the basic safety issue identified by the Union and automating. Docklands Railway has run for years fully automated, visit Dubai Airport and you will step into a fully automatic train to move you between terminals. Other trains on the UK network operate driver only. Disruptive strikes should be a thing of the past and should be banned.
The need for Disruptive strike action should be confined to history and replaced with real participation within all levels of a company structure making Trade Unions obsolete.
The Greenbelt is supposed to prevent urban sprawl but does it just squeeze everybody to live in cramped conditions in our towns and cities, ignoring the reality of population growth and the need for new homes. Why are we not building the homes everybody knows are needed?
Are we trying to live in the past? Do we have an unreal memory of the good old days?
CHANGE is coming and coming fast as we leave the EU.
The UK must improve its productivity, that means we all need to work Quicker,Smarter and Better than the rest in everything we do. Companies need to share the rewards of success and growth to its employees at all levels if we are to be successful.
