Do the striking train drivers have a point; expecting just one person to look after a train simply isn't safe?

The bosses answer is that advances in technology mean it is very safe and the drivers are just being Luddites.

However, as regular users of the rail 'service' see, on a daily basis, the technology the rail firms use simply isn't up to the job. How often are there delays because of 'signalling problems', why won't rail cards etc. let you through the barriers, why won't they display platform numbers on their iPhone apps, the list goes on.

So perhaps the drivers have a point!

I think you both should get a room. Give TDH a chance to punch his lights out! That'll learn 'im!
