What's going on with local councils? Nottingham Council is going to make its library assistants wear uniforms, though there is no evidence that this will improve the service they provide. One commentator on the linked article tells us that Liverpool library workers are already uniformed. Will this militarisation of the workforce spread throughout the land? Will "other ranks" be made to salute their superior officers?
Militarisation of the proletariat was tried in Soviet Russia; a model for all our British commissars.
