It is just possible that Gordon Brown will hammer another nail in British democracy's coffin if he caves in to union pressure. Labour are in serious debt and it looks like the unions are the only ones willing to keep them solvent. There is however a price for coming to Labour's aid. The unions have a shopping list of demands and Gordon Brown is in no position to refuse them.
Unless the Labour can do a deal with the unions, there is a good chance that the auditors will not sign off Labour's accounts. And those accounts are due to be passed to the Electoral Commission in the next week.
I don't know how Labour have got into such a mess over their finances - they already get millions from the tax payer through what could be described as a money laundering scheme. Basically the government gives millions of pounds of tax payers money to the unions and the unions then give millions to the Labour party. Nice.
The question now is: can Gordon Brown and his government be bought by the unions? I think that I already know the answer to that one.
