pre filming industrial information released Can't Post

As we all know Sir PJ & Co had to deal with industrial action prior to the commencement of filming. Much of that correspondence has just been released and I have had a cursory read of some of it. This is of course a debate that got heated and arguments were drawn along political lines. As is common the true context of comments are lost in the media and it is impossible to form an accurate opinion of what has happended.

I am not an ardent Sir PJ fan although I do admire many aspects of what he has acheived and all I can say from what I have read is that he, Fran, the Government and even the studios come across as being transparent in their dealings with each other.

Now I have seen in full some parts of the correspondence it is clear to me that partial representation of some of the comments, which I had earlier seen in the media, which were variously made by Sir PJ, the government and the studios were described in innaccurately unfavourable context.
