At Prime Minister’s Questions, David Cameron accused Mr. Brown of “lurching to the left” in his dealings with trade unions.
David stressed that trade union leaders “see weakness” when they look at Brown, as they have an overwhelming financial hold over him – 92% of the Labour Party’s funding comes from unions.
With a wave of public sector strikes on the cards, David asked Brown to confirm that he would not weaken the industrial relations laws introduced by the Conservatives.
And he said that with a bankrupt Labour Party “in hock” to the unions and veering to the left, Brown should declare new Labour “dead and buried”.
