When Owen Jones Met Red Len

Of course Owen Jones is definitely not a union lobbyist. He’s far too busy writing his book to get involved in that unfortunate business any more. After all it was only a bit of “public policy work” that he used to do for the union-funded CLASS think tank anyway. Yet now he doesn’t have the time for all that. Who should Owen be spotted with in Portcullis House this afternoon? One Len McCluskey…

      Why are red owen and red Len allowed into Portcullis house? Do they have privileges that ordinary people do not? and isn’t Jones self appointed anyway?

        Good question. They are more important than any other members of the public, so why the special red carpet treatment?

          Portcullis House is for MP’s and their staff.

    This article is an absolutely disgusting insult to lower rate tax-payers who are being extorted by greedy landlords, and the author should apologise to the public and come clean about his earnings.

    It's like a red flag to a bullshitter says:

    People are so unfair about the Labour Party.

    They have so many good ideas and policies to bring a brighter future to Britain yet just about everyone on this blog seems determined to judge them on the 13 years they were in a position to actually do something with them.

          And get Len’s permission to slag off the unions and formulate a pretend spat with them.

          It reminds me of the old joke, “I am the boss in my house and I have my wife’s permission to say so.”

          Miliband has Len’s permission to attack his union, just so long as Ed does not go so far as to remove any of Len’s power to “influence” (dictate) labour selection processes or labour policies.

      The only things I can remember that they managed to do was increase the surveillance society;reduce freedom of speech;increase immigration; bust the economy;fail to regulate the banks properly; use taxpayers money to bail out Scottish Banks;sold off our gold reserves at rock bottom prices oh and yes get us involved in several wars one of which was illegal and another with very vague objectives…was it to promote women’s rights,stop the heroin trade or make the streets of Britain safer ? Who knows cos’ sure as fuck they didn’t
