The TUC had the susceptible on tenterhooks with the promise of a big announcement at 10:30 this evening. When it came, then it was a campaign for a minimum wage of £15 per hour. Absolutely right in itself, of course. But under the current circumstances, is that it?
On 31st October 1955, Princess Margaret made it known that she had decided not to marry Group Captain Peter Townsend, and Philip Larkin wrote to Monica Jones that he had assumed that any announcement would have been an engagement, "since you couldn't announce nothing. Well, apparently you can."
Next month's TUC Congress could get interesting.ReplyDelete
