Should union leaders like Len McCluskey withdraw support from Labour?
Given the ever increasing gulf between the unions and Labour is it now time for the unions to withdraw their support?
Earlier this year Ed Milliband condemned the industrial action taken by public sector workers followed by Ed Balls’ acceptance of every spending cut made by the government. These views are in stark contrast to that of the unions yet disturbingly similar to that of the Tory led coalition. With such opposing views how can the unions continue to support ‘New’ Labour?
There have been idle threats for a number of years for a withdrawal of support but is now the time for the unions to back a new party? What is needed is a credible opposition to the savage cuts being imposed by the condem government and blue Labour are clearly not providing it.
