Ending Labour Cabinet Elections Could Boost Union Control

Team Miliband has earned plaudits for promising to end elections to Labour’s shadow cabinet team. There has been an outbreak of support for Labour’s version of the Führerprinzip from all corners. While this may put a block on the more loony elements of the Labour left getting into the shadow cabinet, perversely it may increase the control of the unions. They put Ed Miliband into office and they pay the Labour Party’s bills.

He who pays the piper calls the tunes: Miliband will not be able to resist demands from union bosses for their placemen to be in the Labour cabinet. Unite already have a well developed programme of putting their approved candidates on the parliamentary list. They will soon be able to control the composition of cabinet. No wonder Labour is too craven to stand against children being locked out of schools with single-parents being forced to lose income staying at home to care for their children. Union-owned politicians are not in the public interest.
