Yes of course, these video clips can be seen as one side of a propaganda war between Merseyrail and the RMT, although as I have said many times before Merseyrail are just the front for the dispute on the employers side as the real creators of the dispute are in fact Merseytravel, the public transport body for the Liverpool City Region.

I continue to scratch my head about how Merseyrail keep pretending the dispute is all theirs as they shield Merseytravel. However, I wonder what their feelings are behind closed doors? A little more robust, so to speak, about Merseytravel?

What’s even more odd is how the RMT seem to look at Merseyrail as their opposition in this dispute when in fact they know only too well that the rail operating company is simply carrying out the bidding of Merseytravel.

What an odd dispute this is in terms of how it was caused and by whom. But whatever the lines of dispute may be and how clouded they clearly are the Merseyrail travelling public still seem to be full square behind the RMT union.
