Why the “Unite strategy” is suicidal for Labour
Martin Kettle in today’s Guardian on why Ed Miliband has to repudiate Unite organisationally and ideologically:
A Labour party campaigning on an old industrial class-based agenda, with extra powers for unions that are in other respects withering across British life, led by quisling politicians manipulated by union officials who in some cases are old Stalinists, in pursuit of a state-owned economy that would not work and would not be popular, may appeal to a few romantics. But it is an utterly bankrupt strategy.
