UPDATE: Save the minimum wage

Wage Concern reports that at 9:30am, as I was typing out an anti-Thatcherite rant, the Employment Oppertunities Bill was withdrawn and postponed by it’s original founder, Christopher Chope MP.

This is obviously a fantastic victory for the left. We worked 100 years to get Minimum Wage on the statute book, and thus we are not giving it up. Hence, if these nutjobs attempt to restart the legislation once again, the fight will begin again.

But for now, I take immense pleasure in this defeat – and the humiliation of a few right wing nutjobs.
