Easter Trading Bill Defeat - How Medieval

If a retailer is prepared to open on a particular day and staff are happy to work on that day and customers are willing to shop on that day, then what business does Parliament have in interfering in the arrangement? Where is the harm?

Actually, I know the answer already - the only harm is to the socialist sensibilities of the those who imagine that we live in some sort of real life parody of medieval feudalism where workers are virtual slaves and are too stupid and ignorant to negotiate with business owners in their own interests.

I have to work regardless of the day.

Nobody seems to mind that.

But then they tend to get a little precious about their crapper working!
