Slow Unwinding of British Civilisation Continues

Boss giving you a hard time at work? Call the cops!

Yes, indeed, they may not have known he was the boss, they might have thought he was just a paying customer, annoyed at being kept waiting while they sat around. Hmmmm... in sane countries that's not really much of an excuse.

Hey, say what you like about lawyers, but in twelve years they've managed to bring back all the problems of unionisation without any of the advantages. The reason these folks can behave like they do is because they know that sacking anyone is a legal minefield. Management doesn't run companies any more, they just act as liaison with the government - y'know, the body that hires people who can explain with a straight face how they did a great job except for the whole 'deaths' thing.
