Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Definitely worth Front-paging.

Maybe a LTE to the FT with the following two quotations from The Gospel would not be out of place...

The masters, being fewer in number, can combine much more easily: and the law, besides, authorises, or at least does not prohibit, their combinations, while it prohibits those of the workmen.
Whenever the legislature attempts to regulate the differences between masters and their workmen, its counsellors are always the masters. When the regulation, therefore, is in favour of the workmen, it is always just and equitable; but it is sometimes otherwise when in favour of the masters.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
