I prefer not to cross picket lines

FREELANCE journalist and NUJ member Martin Lewis of moneysavingexpert.com (he spoke to LFB in 2013, pictured) declined to turn up to do his regular Deals of the Week spot on ITV's Good Morning Britain on 14 May, the day of the one-day strike by NUJ and technicians' union Bectu over a two per cent pay offer.

Martin tweeted that "As [an] NUJ member I prefer not to cross picket lines."
