The Trade Unions bankroll the Labour Party. In a big way. (I have a small article on the topic published here ) Today finally tackled the burning issue this morning here. Comrade Billy Hayes was on and I thought it was very insipid interview. He was allowed to avoid dealing with the fact that the minority of UK employees who DO belong to a trade union (29%) overwhelmingly work in the Public Sector. And that’s the link that dare not speak its name. The Unions own Labour, and the Unions are the Public Sector. This could have been a robust and interesting exchange but I thought it was very disappointing. Then again, how many of those interviewing trade unionists on the BBC are themselves trade unionists?
PART OF THE UNION!
