"Give 'em a lifelong siesta, I would."
Vernon Dursley's opinion on how he'd handle the strikers.[src]

A Spanish baggage-handlers' strike was a labour strike among the baggage handlers of Spain that took place for at least two weeks during the summer of 1995. This strike resulted in a record number of holidaymakers being stranded on the strike's second week, a fact that was the top story of Surrey's local news on the day Harry Potter was listening to it from the Dursley's hydrangea bushes.[1]
