A Brown study...

According to the BBC it looks as if Gordon Brown will be elected unopposed. It is still a mathematical possibility that the intelligent, imaginative and principled McDonnell campaign will see a socialist candidate on the ballot paper for Labour Leader who will support trade union policies.

If we don’t have a choice for trade unionists and Party members because the PLP are so determined that Brown shall be our Leader we may not be able to do anything about that – but trade unionists who seriously want political influence for our movement will have to take stock of how we use the relationship we have with the Labour Party.

UNISON Conference will provide one such opportunity.
