    I agree, but we must be pragmatic. A minimum turnout can not really be argued as a move against the right to strike, so long as the figure is reasonable. However, if you remove legal protection from industrial action, you can never hope to recieve support or indifference from anyone anywhere near the left of the spectrum. And bearing in mind the make up of this House, it'll be a very difficult Bill to pass.
    Well, I'll support a bill with a 50% minimum turnout, but it's not my preferred option.

    So the stocks that I suggested for the bosses of Nat West could be used?

    Being serious for a minute. Look at some of Barbara Castle's 1960s proposals such as the 'cooling off' period of 60 days, and end the 28 day rule for the start of industrial action (say have six months), and you'd reduce the number of strikes by a fair amount.

    As demonstrated by your solid destruction of my argument.

    Every worker has the right to withdraw their labour. Nay.
    How about quitting and finding alternative employment if they're so unhappy with their conditions that they are unwilling to work?

    And every employer should have the right to punish employees who do not turn up to work, provided they do so indiscriminately.

    I support this bill. There are few jobs for sixteen year olds, and for the jobs that do exist, such as newspaper deliveries, it's quite hard to change the working conditions.
