Tebbit eggs on Ed to undermine union call to arms

Tory dinosaur Lord Tebbit - who has no interest whatsoever in Labour's future success - uses his Telegraph blog to call on Ed Miliband to subvert union democracy in the looming pensions dispute: '.... he will have to lead the calls for union members to ignore their leaders. It will not be easy for him, but then leadership is often about taking tough decisions and getting them right. What is more, there would be a huge longer term dividend for him in establishing himself as a man who speaks for his country, not just his party' http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/normantebbit/100105541/poor-ed-miliband-needs-the-courage-to-face-down-his-demented-trade-union-backers/
