Strike vote turnouts


So Boris Johnson wants to annoy the trade unions by calling for a change in the law so that they can only go on strike when at least 50% of members take part in the ballot. Friend/enemy David Cameron has signalled sympathy for this view.

I suppose I might also agree with the position as logical and reasonable as long as the Government additionally legislates to make sure that MPs and councillors cannot take their seats unless at least 50% of their electorates participated in the poll.
