A sad day for freedom

The decision of a judge to rule the British Airways cabin crew strike illegal on what really is a trivial technicality (apparently posting notice of 11 spoiled ballots - out of over 11,000 votes in all - on websites, via email, and on every available noticeboard does not count as "notifying the membership": one has to wonder what WOULD count?) shows that the attacks on trade union rights (and indeed public freedoms) to which we became accustomed in the Blair years are likely to get worse rather than better under Cleggeron.

See here. Also sound sense from Craig Murray here.
