Labour reminder

With regard to fallout over the Falkirk selection process and leader Ed Miliband’s vow to reform links with the unions, it would appear that a great many Labour MPs are in need of a lesson in history to acquaint, or remind, them that without the trade unions they would not be where they are today, viz, sitting in the Houses of Parliament.

Without them, there would be no Labour Party. Accordingly, I would urge those who exhort Ed Miliband to stand up to the big unions to switch their attention to the real “ enemy within”, the fat cats who ran our banks into the ground and the press barons who run this country through their mouthpieces, the Tory party. They finance the ­Tories to an extent that Labour fundraisers can only dream of.
