Labour takes union cash and disenfranchises others

Blair has abandoned plans to terminate links between the Labour party and the trade union movement and is to bring in a new law giving unions the right to fund MPs.

One labour MP said " There are 13 unions affiliated to the Labour party, so we will be getting as much as 11,500 in additional campaign funds....""

At the same time SNP supporters, even though they hold "UK" passports, are NOT allowed to give monies to their party of choice.

Hail Blair, Mr Sleaze.
