"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Labour's In Trouble...

...if this is the best they can do:

Dear XXX

The Times today carries an extensive analysis of a poll in the key marginal seats by Populus which puts Labour and the Tories neck and neck at 38 per cent. It is confirmation of a spate of recent articles that shows underlying the headlines the Tories have not sealed the deal with the electorate. It also excludes the 50 most marginal seats which are assumed to go Tory. But we know that the Unite membership in those 50 seats far exceeds the majority being defended. If it is game on in the 100 quoted, it must be battle joined in the 50 they have excluded.

This is all the more reason why we need to build on the momentum from last week's record number of calls made to Unite members in the key seats. There's another "Talk Thursday" this week and regional phone banks have been organised across the UK for this Saturday. Please get involved and make those "Two calls a day to keep the Tories away".

If you are unsure as to where your regional phone bank is this Saturday or are having problems gaining access to the virtual phone bank, please contact me or my colleague Andrew Brady at andrew.brady@unitetheunion.org

All the best,

Charlie Whelan
Political Director

You've got to laugh. It goes without saying, of course, that Charlie Whelan doesn't work for the Labour Party and Gordon Brown has never heard of him or a Union called Unite.

Read and weep Labour - even the BBC doesn't want you on their sofas


  1. Perhaps it should be stated and publicised, that another other arm of Unite, is headed by this man, Martin Smith, leader of the U.A.F.

  2. From above...

    "Another other"

    How sad am I?

  3. Thanks D&C. Which arm of Unite is it? I checked on google but can't find it - only Love Music Hate Racism and UAF. I remember when he was trounced by Paxman on Newsnight - Smith is an idiot.

    I like 'another other' - it has a nice ring to it!
