As the threat of yet more tube strikes looms, Boris Johnson waded into the fray again with union leaders over industrial action, calling for a change in law so that a higher number of union members would be required to pass a vote for strikes. The mayor has been criticised for not meeting with the union leaders concerned as per his pre-election manifesto, yet Boris's stance last year was that he wouldn't meet with them until the threat of strike action was removed. So something of a Mexican stand-off. Unsurprisingly, Ken Livingstone has condemned the cuts which caused the latest round of strikes, but then as a budding mayoral candidate for 2012, he would.
