Part of this is the inevitable Rightwards shift of the Lib Dems (this is partly being forced on them by the Tories, partly being actively pursued by their own Right). But I still find comments like the following on their latest 'scary unions' post rather hard to swallow, particularly given very recent history:
"unions are a special interest group, just like bankers."Also check out the comments from LD supporters saying they are quitting unions because the unions are mobilising against those pusing through cuts.
"The TUC, The Co-op Bank & The Labour Party are all part of the same thing. The situation has many parallels with that in China or Cuba."
