Cameron demonising the public sector as the 'enemy within' - Ed Miliband‏

THE FT reports on UNISON supported Labour Leadership candidate Ed Miliband coming out in defence of public service workers: “Cameron wants to create an enemy within, he wants to say the issue in politics is the public sector, and the public sector is something of a leach or a parasite on the rest of society, I profoundly disagree,” he said. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e402d036-98c0-11df-a0b7-00144feab49a.html?ftcamp=rss

However Miliband said he had no plans to change the laws on secondary action should Labour win the next election – not delivering on Unite Joint GS Tony Woodley’s sine qua non but nonetheless picking up the support of Labour’s largest affiliate: http://www.labourlist.org/woodley-leadership-unite-against-anti-union-law
