Could it be that a green shoot of peace is bravely trying to thrust its way forward towards the sunlight in the ongoing dispute between BA and Unite?
Unite, over the weekend, announced that they will postpone the strike ballot in order to allow members to consult on a new offer from BA.
Cynics note that this temporary respite was before England were trounced on Sunday. Even Unite recognise that by holding a strike ballot during the world cup, in which England fans might feel that their journeys to support the team were threatened (even if the actual strikes themselves would not occur until after the world cup), would be rather stupid.
