Know your place!

The local MPs are Conservatives to a man (no sexism there then) and the Trade Union Bill will not change that.

However what it will do is to severely limit the ability of working people through their unions to influence the political process. I am a proud member of a trade union which is not the lickspittle of any political party but uses a political fund to influence all parties.

The venom the Tories have towards the working classes is understandable. The working classes gave Margaret Thatcher a bloody nose over the poll tax and Tories have long memories if nothing else.

 It is undermining the basis of democracy in the UK. It will do nothing to prevent the rich, the tax dodgers and the spivs from using their dosh to influence (shall we say bribe?) politicians  but it will keep the lower orders in their place.

More than anything else, the millionares fear a movement like 15 now spreading across the world. This movement has even forced the McDonalds union-busting anti-working-class company to make concessions.
