I thought you needed a basic grasp of grammar and the English language to be a reporter? You're an absolute disgrace Tom Gillespie, and this 'piece' is an embarrassment to the great institution that is journalism. It's an absolute joke.

Firstly, the blazing dustbin, as you have described it, is in fact a brazier, Tom. It's a traditional focal point for a picket line. Secondly fire-fighters are not striking over workloads; it's about the government's shameless attack on their pensions.

May I suggest a little bit of research before publishing poorly referenced articles.
