I am astonished, literally astonished at the brazen way in which David Axelrod and Michael Dugher MP are buddying-up together.
What a slap in the face for the lefties in the Labour Party!
Let us remind ourselves what Unite activist Jenny Formby said about Michael Dugher in October 2013: http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/oct/03/unite-official-ed-miliband-union-tactics
The Guardian article tells us: "Dugher is unpopular among supporters of McCluskey because he was an aide to Sir Ken Jackson, the former general secretary of the AEEU (and then Amicus) trade union, who was described as one of Tony Blair's favourite trade union leaders. Unite was formed in 2007 when Amicus merged with the Transport and General Workers' Union (TGWU). McCluskey was a veteran TGWU member who supported Militant."
Is it possible we are seeing a New Labour revanchist coup taking place in the Labour Party - taking place indeed before our very eyes!
