Broadcasting House (R4) featured a fascinating ICM poll that shows that only 25% of the general public support the BA cabin crew strike, with 60% opposed. The issue was discussed with Bob Crowe and former GOAT Lord Digby Jones after a report from "John Kelly, professor of industrial relations at Birkbeck College." Professor Kelly would be one among the 25% minority, as it was quite clear from what he said that he was a strong union supporter. A little research shows him to be just another of the BBC's vast cast of left-wing academics. He's a member of the Socialist History Society, for example. His report was accompanied by a song by Billy Bragg.
