Are the unions now flexing their muscles as we approach the election?

The last few days has seen the Labour government in detailed talks with UK unions over potential public sector service cuts and employment issues for the future. Despite the fact that the UK budget deficit will hit £175 billion this year and UK national debt is over £1 trillion it seems as though the UK unions are flexing their muscles in return for supporting, both financially and practically, the Labour Party at the next general election.

Rumours in the press suggest that private contributions to the UK Labour Party have fallen dramatically since Gordon Brown took control of the government and the party is now at the behest of trade Unions in the UK. It is highly noticeable that we are seeing more and more industrial action up and down the country with the UK government unwilling or unable to take on the unions at this moment in time.

This void has been exploited by the union paymasters who are now demanding that Labour returns to grassroots support and grassroots policies in the short, medium and longer term. Gordon Brown is ultimately held over a barrel and there appears to be no short term escape route.
