PCSU plan to unleash Prescott?

Although Mrs Rigby thinks there might have been a bit of a typo and they were referring to the "forces of Hull", you'd think, wouldn't you, that they'd have waited until after the election to make a threat or two, especially as the government hasn't yet repealed the Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill that limits protests around Parliament. and Generally extends to whole UK - otherwise they won't get to have their well-supported protest marches.
We'll 'unleash hell' on Tories, threaten unions as public sector is gripped by new militancy
And you think, wouldn't you, that because the Police aren't allowed to take industrial action the vitally-important-to-national-security PCSOs would be bound by the same rules.

Seems not.
· Solid support among civilian staff working for the Met Police, including 999 operators, community support officers and House of Parliament security.
Goes to show that they're no better than the rest of us and maybe, if anybody sees a PCSO chewing gum and then chucking it on the ground, any of us could issue them with a fixed penalty notice for littering.

Sauce for the goose and all that? No?

Anyhow, it looks as if, if the Tories win the next election (and the Unions seem to think it's a foregone conclusion) there might be more "public sector" strikes called by the PCSU - which might make it easier to take photos of the sights of London.

Some clouds really do have silver linings.
