Implied textMyth: Homer, Odyssey 1, 12; 'Ulysses and the Sirens' According to Greek
legend the Sirens lived on an island near Scylla and Charybdis.
Half-bird, half-women, their song enchanted passing sailors, causing men
who were seduced by the "honey sweet-music of their lips" to jump into
the sea and turn into rocks. In the Odyssey, Odysseus had his men tie him
to the mast, while the rest of those board the ship put beeswax in their
ears to prevent them from being seduced by the beautiful melodies of the
creatures.
NotesNews: 14 Mar: The TUC economic committee met to discuss the resolutions passed by the special congress calling for a day of protest and stoppage over the government's pay restraint measures. Mr Feather reiterated the TUC's willingness to join further talks with the Government aimed at a voluntary deal on prices and incomes.
