This is why trade unions have learnt nothing from the past. I am sure most would agree that Labour were going to loose the last election and would then hand legislative power back to the right. What do you need to pass even more laws to restrict collective strength, than a couple of high profile strikes (BASSA and RMT). When I say collective strength, I am talking about individual rights being put forward collectively. This is where the unions and New Labour had there disconnect and if the left can't agree with each other, there is no way that the current Government are going to further increase individual rights, over that of business.
