    That said, it’s highly unlikely that any union will actually sever its financial ties with Labour, but it will be interesting to see how effective the alliance between the unions and grassroots disability organisations is in challenging Government cuts and defending disability rights.”

    Total agreement with John’s argument. The best way to deal with Labour’s betrayal of ordinary people is to work towards making their financial status as bankrupt as their policies. The party rejected its historical ties in the late 1990s and only want the unions’ money because the men of capital aren’t paying for Labour’s “trick turning” at present. As Trotsky said: “Time to support them like a hangman’s noose”.
