Everybody out!

“Strikes are planned by room warders at the National Gallery on 19, 28 January and 2, 4 February. The stoppages may mean the Leonardo exhibition has to close. The warders, who are frequently on strike, want the Gallery to always have one warder per room, rather than one for every two rooms as the Gallery would occasionally prefer. The warders may be right that one per room would be safer. But it would be safer still if they didn’t spend much of the time standing next to each other, having a good old chinwag.” (Bendor Grosvenor, Art History News blog, posted 16 January 2012)
