The government is facing defeat over its plans to liberalise Sunday trading laws in England and Wales after the SNP decided to vote against the measure.And…why would they do this? Some ultra-religious sentiment?
The SNP, which rarely votes on matters at Westminster that are unrelated to Scotland, has decided to oppose the reforms on the grounds that they could drive down the wages of Scottish workers who enjoy a special Sunday premium.Ah, I see. ‘Honour the Sabbath day, and keep it holy. Unless you slip us a big wedge, when we’ll totes man those tills!’.
