Tessa Jowell's boss to Brown: bring back flying pickets

Or so it would seem. One time card carrying Communist Derek Simpson of the Amicus half of Unite, speaking to the Labour conference been quoted thus at the Amicus site:

"The joint head of the UK’s largest trade union called for an end to restrictions on secondary action following the Gate Gourmet dispute and to the time consuming and expensive balloting procedures trade unions are required to comply with by law".

And the connection with Tessa?

She is one of over one hundred Labour MPs that are part of the Amicus parliamentary group, including, rather hilariously, Sean Woodward and Barbara Follett. Other members include Douglas Alexander, the Speaker (yes, really), and Hilary Benn.

I support the "right" of anyone to strike over any issue. The other side of the coin is that employers should be allowed to sack anyone for any reason.
