As Jacob Rees-Mogg calls them.
Known to the rest of us as the EDL, whom he clearly wants to bring "very much back" to the Conservative Party as surely as his heroine once did.
And like all the rest of them today, he is dredging up the half-memory of Reagan and the air traffic controllers. But, among many things that could be said on that score, Reagan had a complete set of fully trained and qualified air traffic controllers ready, willing and able to be appointed in place of the strikers.
Where is the complete set of fully trained and qualified people ready, willing and able to fill each and every one of today two million strikers' jobs, up to and including as headteachers, radiographers, meteorologists, First Division civil servants, and so on?
Does he want to bring in the EDL to do all of those jobs as well? Very much back, indeed.
