With friends like these

Brown and Co do seem to have failed to make friends with core support, judging by this press release by the TUC:

"I urge trade unionists in this region to reflect on the key issues...Then union members should critically assess the policy programmes that are on offer.

'Millions of people in this region believe that trade unions have a key role in their workplaces and in a modern Britain. So I urge every member of union to use their vote to support candidates that share our confidence that unions have a vital contribution to make in the workplace and in the community. And I urge voters to support candidates who believe in the provision and enforcement of excellent employment and health and safety rights at work for every worker.'"

Admittedly this is not coming from the head of the TUC (1), but rather a South East region organiser, but it is right there on the TUC's site. No mention of Labour at all, and sufficiently wide to be an endorsement of the Left List, rump Respect etc etc. We live in strange times.



(1). Brendan Barber. Hand on heart, how many of us could claim to be able to name the head of the TUC without having to pause for thought?
