Boris Johnson has hit out at senior members of the RMT union over the 48-hour strike on London Underground.
The Mayor of London said the strike was only happening because some "union barons" were trying to "flex their muscles" in a bid to succeed former leader Bob Crow, who died in March.
Despite dozens of meetings over several months the RMT chose only on Friday to make fresh demands. It seems they are more interested in fighting over the leadership of the RMT than the interests of their members.
Commuters and businesses will suffer because a few narrow minded union barons are currently flexing their muscles in a fight for the leadership of a union where just 30% of members support a strike.
