Pigs fly, Elvis lives and the world is flat

In the light of the TUC Congress motion I am about to repeat below, I think my headline is not that outrageous:

"Congress condemns the board of the Cooperative Group for its anti-trade union actions in derecognising the GMB union and withdrawing from the collective bargaining and recognition agreement held with the GMB within the funeral care business of the Co-operative Group".

Coming from a long line of non-Co-Op users - I am NOT wittingly giving money to the Labour party directly or indirectly - that elements of the Socialist coalition are falling out is deeply encouraging.

It is that time of the year again, and there are plenty more nuggets in the congress agenda which I will consider later, but that one just could not wait.

Dear me - surely I'm not going to have to reconsider my opinion of the Co-op.
