Trade union strategies and the Labour party

I have been a Labour party member since leaving university and have remained a supporter of the idea behind the Labour party and what is meant to be standing for. The link with the Trade Unions is perhaps the only reason for me staying in, but I have disagreed with many of the decisions and the direction New Labour has been taken us and have not been very comfortable with career politicians like Blair and Starw having so much influence on what we did in the last 20 years.

Looking at the broad picture I would argue that the TU's should stay firmly within the Labour party structures and continue their involvement but shift some of the funding they give to Labour to new projects like financing a Union based radio station or even a television channel, this will be more effective than crawling to to the likes of D Milliband...
