Are you bleating about ba workers going on strike?
Think of it like this.
The first ruling: you turn up five minutes late to work and due to that misdemeanour have your entire days pay stopped by a junior manager.
The second ruling: a senior manager tells the junior manager to "stop being such an ass," and reinstates your whole days pay.
Naturally all of this is from my non-reading of any actual court documents or hearing anything more tasty than a sound bite, assessment. Which could be so far removed from what's actually gone on, as to render this particular utterance worse than that last bit of frayed toilet paper i had to struggle with, just after the long-life bathroom light decided to blow.
