Everyone is turning up for work at Parliament. As expected. But... their mind isn't really on Westminster. It's even really on the wedge of elections on 5th May. No, it's EU this, EU that, EU the other. Today even saw Obama getting involved. These laws do matter though. The Trade Union Bill will have a huge effect. The 5th May elections will change lives. Don't let all your attention be pulled away!
Oh - and a quick plug - we're running our first night out in London on July 4th. Everything you need to know about politics - in a bar - with burgers. Check it.
Trade Union Bill
A London tube strike costs the economy from £50 -£600 million.
This law make strikes harder - more people have to vote for them. It also puts in a delay to strike, changes rules about picketing & political funding.
Critics say it takes power away from workers; threatens democracy; & striking is a human right.
