As Theresa May must have known would happen when she first, and wholly unexpectedly, floated the idea, there is now an inexorable momentum towards an inquiry into Orgreave.
It is going to happen. It is just that it is now going to happen later rather than sooner.
This is the piece of red meat thrown to her deeply disaffected Loony Right. But it will make no difference to that faction's implacable hostility towards much of the rest of her programme.
Let Labour put the need for an inquiry into Orgreave to a Division of the House of Commons.
As much as anything else, that would smoke out Labour's own Loony Right.
