Remove the link between the Labour Party and the Unionss
Unions preform a vital role in making sure workers know the law and aren't dealt with unfairly.
However, The Labour party's link with the Unions is politically damaging. It enables Labour to have an unfair sphere of influence. Quite often monies paid to unions go indirectly into election campaigns for the Labour party, both nationally and locally. This could be in the form of office space used after hours, use of franking machines, or in the form of producing 'independent' leaflets or posters which clearly attack all party's but Labour (Tory tax bomb posters from the last election).
This is unfair and undemocratic. The financial link between these two must be deemed illegal to restore democracy to a level playing field.
