I find it interesting that Ben Lowry (‘Drivers are now well paid ... which reminds me of a job idea,’ September 4, see link below) has considered being a long distance lorry driver.

I was one myself all my working life from when our lorries were slung on to a ship by a large crane through to modern ferries. it would be good if other unionists did too, it might broaden their narrow mindset that there is life outside the wee North of flags and parades.
