Mick Lynch has denied being the “Grinch who stole Christmas” after the latest wave of train strikes were announced for December and January. The RMT general secretary insisted the festive period had “deliberately” been left strike free.

More than 40,000 members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union across Network Rail and 14 train operating companies will strike on December 13, 14, 16 and 17 and on January 3, 4, 6 and 7.

During an appearance on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, host Susanna Reid asked: “How are you not the Grinch who steals Christmas?”

Mr Lynch said: “Every day is sensitive, there’s no good time to have a strike.

“We’ve deliberately left the Christmas period strike free.

“We cannot leave this action to go cold. We’ve not been on strike for two months.

“We moved other dates to facilitate important public and national events.

“If we just leave it they’ll impose the changes.”
