Unlikely

McCall, a quietly spoken, expository Scot who was ideologically opposed to the “high-pitched left”, took the IPCS out on strike again in 1981 in an industrial action that effectively stopped the Royal Mint printing money.

The Mint, err, mints coins. The Bank of England – through De La Rue I think?- prints notes.

So the strike could have stopped the Mint minting, the BoE printing, but it’s unlikely to have stopped the Mint printing….
