A slightly revised position on trade unions

Iain Dale 2008 -
'TUC conference: trade unions need David Cameron as much as he needs them'

Iain Dale 2010 -
And to listen to Brendan Barber and Bob Crow this morning you'd think we were back in the 1970s with talk of constant strikes and civil disobedience. Crow and his ilk need to be crushed. There's no compromise to be had with them.

In other words unions are ok when then are nice and fluffy NGO-ish voluntarist bits of civil society, but when they seek to fulfil their core function of protecting their members we stamp on them.
