So Ed states his new policies will change the shape of politics and the Labour Party……….laugh, I nearly voted Tory. Getting rid of Union support will only make Labour more appealing to the heartless business classes, and is aimed at creating the longevity of Labour rule as opposed to creating a fair representative party.
Politics shouldn’t be for politics sake, it is for the community to be represented; Thatcher and then Blair have turned the whole process into voting for a party as opposed to the individual. Politicians should simply be the tools of the community; a method of wading through the bureaucratic shit not simply a career like a plumber or electrician.
Unions are more representative of grass roots workers issues than any politician and it will be a big mistake for labour to keep breaking there links.
