3. James Doyle and the Boilermakers' Strike

Old Gentleman: I say, boy! What's all that frightful noise? Boy: It's the boilermakers from Tyneside. They're on strike. I'm on my way to join them.

Old Gentleman: You a boilermaker?

Boy: Me? No, I slave for United Alloys. But I'll add my voice to anyone fighting for his rights.

Old Gentleman: Wait! Why are they striking this time?

В о у: A rise in wages mainly — and overtime for nights.

Old Gentleman: Why don't they use their brains? A rise in pay means rising prices and greater inflation. What's the point? Who gains?

Boy: That's blackmail, mate. There's high unemployment in Tyneside and the employers exploit the situation. They pay a highly trained boilermaker starvation wages. It's a disgrace.

Old Gentleman: What's your name?

Boy: James Doyle. I come from a line of fighters. My Aunt Jane chained herself to the railings in 1809. She was quite famous.

Old Gentleman: I'll be highly annoyed if you tie yourself to mine!
