Back to the bad old days

An article by Steve Doughty in today’s Daily Mail (“Town halls and health service told to help out unions as Labour’s cash crisis deepens”) tells how the Government are now telling NHS and local government organisations that they show preference in their procurements processes to tenders from companies who promote union membership.

The article suggests that the financial gain from this Cabinet Office diktat could be anything up to £70,000,000,000 – yes, that’s seventy billion pounds – a year, boosting union coffers and indirectly Labour Party funds.

You’d think the Labour Party would have learned its lesson – the Dome, Ecclestone, Cherie’s flat, the Hinduja Brothers – the list goes on and on.

So just one question. If this was the Conservative Party, how do you think the Labour Party would react?
