It is hard to imagine too much difficulty in securing a 50 per cent turnout to vote for strike action against the continuation of the public sector pay cap. These days, it is also hard to imagine that the Police could be bought off by its having been lifted for them alone. But even if there were to be illegal, coordinated strikes, then so what?
Quite apart from the fact that the enactment of further anti-union legislation constituted a concession of the failure of Margaret Thatcher, whose name her own party never mentions, it would be worth even considering an attempt to enforce that law when anyone attempted the far simpler task of enforcing the law against cannabis. Or the far simpler task of enforcing the law against foxhunting, to which the Police act as escorts, arresting only anyone who might seek to obstruct this criminality or to object to it.
Or the far simpler task of arresting or prosecuting anyone other than a Premier League footballer, and even then probably only one from the "wrong" club, for the "digital penetration" of a 15-year-old girl who had, furthermore, been out drinking with the complete impunity of everyone from her parents to the relevant licensees. Or the far simpler task of arresting or prosecuting anyone other than a minister of religion, or possibly a teacher, for any kind of sexual activity with a 15-year-old boy.
Or the far simpler task of prosecuting people who openly admitted to having filled in their 2015 General Election forms incorrectly in such numbers as to have affected the overall result. Or the far simpler task of prosecuting Tony Blair for selling peerages, which he did by every means short of advertising them in Exchange and Mart. Or the far simpler task of prosecuting Tony Blair and his accomplices as the war criminals that they so obviously are. Or the far simpler task of prosecuting George Osborne and his accomplices over their larceny of the Royal Mail.
In the meantime, stand on the picket lines with all those who will be demanding that the cap be scrapped.
