Quote of the Day — 2 Comments

  1. On reading the OP it occured to me that many people were in favour of the unions being put back in their box. Jim is absolutely on the nail really, there is no comparison with differences between government policies and public opinion back then and the current wish to ignore the clear result of a national referendum.

  2. Bit late to this; but Parris’ claim struck me as not even wrong, and indeed, Hey Presto!

    The thing lists five tasks, under the first “restoring the balance”:

    Trade union reform
    1. Picketing
    2. The closed shop
    3. Wider participation

    Too many strikes
    Responsible pay bargaining

    Umder the third, “the rule of law”; The supremacy of Parliament.

    In the foreword : “striking a fair balance between the rights and duties of the trade union movement”.

    These are all expanded upon further on.

    Parris is flat out lying.
