Left Foot In It

Innured as we all are to the idiocies of the Brit leftists, they still manage to surprise from time to time by their total ignorance of economics, let alone human nature.

This article in Left Foot Forward is based entirely on the lump of labour fallacy, and concludes that although the state-imposed 35-hour week has been something less than a success in France, a 21-hour week in Britain would resolve all our problems at a stroke.

Since that is about the number of hours' work actually performed by most Brits in a 48-hour week, if wages could be adjusted accordingly it might be welcomed by employers. But not, one suspects, by the leftist auto-proctologists.
