So in the wake of this whole Abrahams thing, the New Labourites are plotting to destroy the Union link, something they've been keen on doing for years but have so far been unable to.

This will prevent Trade Unions from funding the Labour Party, their contributions would have to be dramatically reduced, and as such radically change how the Labour Party operates, it will force trade unionists to essentially make individual donations (and I can't see many doing that with how the government are carrying on)

Grimmer has been following this for the last few days (here and here).

She's right, if this goes ahead it'll be the final nail in the coffin of the Labour Party. Lenin said the Labour Party was a bourgeois-workers party, such a move would turn it into a bourgeois party, it would break its connection to the working class. A party unconnected to the workers is not something I want to be part of.
