Disabled workers and Covid

This is the text of my contribution to the debate at TUC Disabled Workers' Conference on 10 March 2019.

Hi. I'm Janine Booth, representing RMT. Our members work in the rail, road transport, shipping and offshore energy industries.

Bristol's Brilliant Bus Boycott (1963)

Bristol bus boycott

Back before barring blacks became banned
Bristol buses blocked brown-skinned blokes becoming buscrew

But better Bristolians batted back
bit the bullet and boycotted the buses

Bent-backed, booted bipeds bicycled,
as bitter brushes blazed between bile and benevolence

Bands of brave, belligerent banner-bearers
branded the ban biased, barbarous balderdash

Night Tube (Covid-19 remix)

Night Tube Covid

It's just like any other Saturday night
but without the vomit and with no-one to fight

It's just like Night Tube but nobody's pissed and
the two people here are socially distant

It's just like every other morning after
but without the bleary eyes and laughter

There's no-one to beg from, no tickets to tout
because staying at home is the new going out
