I would like to congratulate twelve Tory headbangers on their timing.

It can be said that only a particular type of Tory could do the following:

1) Attempt to undermine a piece of legislation that transformed the lives of the working class.
2) Justify this by suggesting that not being able to work for less than a set minimum is a violation of employees Human Rights!
3) Make said arguments against the Minimum Wage during a time of recession.
4) Get invited onto the Today program to defend the Bill, then withdraw the Bill, and the interview at the last minute.

These right-wing Thatcherite headbangers, all eleven of them, have given me the best laugh in days.

They did say comedy was all about timing!

In all seriousness, the Bill would not have got very far at all given it’s minimal support and the vitriol poured on it from the Left.

Silly Thatcherites. Go back to your holes and stop trying to settle old scores.
