Ed Miliband reaps the whirlwind

Breaking news this morning is that the GMB union has decided to slash its funding to the Labour Party in the light of Ed Miliband's decision to rethink the party’s relationship with the unions in the wake of the Falkirk scandal.

The Telegraph says that within months the union is to cut its affiliation funds to Labour from £1.2 million to £150,000 in the wake of the row over party reforms. The GMB has also said that there will be further reductions in spending on Labour Party campaigns and initiatives.

All in all it has been estimated that Miliband's reforms will cost Labour at least £9 million. That is a figure that is backed up by the GMB’s decision.
