Sky are reporting that Unison are suspending payments to 64 constituency Labour parties. Unison give the labour party about £2m each year. This is a major blow to the Labour party and it could be just the first of many. The Union say they are angry over MPs expenses and the part privatisation of Royal Mail. General Secretary Dave Prentis said his union was "tired of feeding the hand that bites it".
Of course as a Conservative member I'm not unhappy to hear this bit of news. However, I am more concerned that this Union is using it's money to try to influence government policy. What will Brown do? Lose the Labour party £2m/year, or become Unison's bitch?
