Milibean stumbles to the right. Who cares?
Ed Miliband's may well, for all his left posturing, end up with a Labour Party further removed from the organised working class than ever before if his plans to curb union influence in the party are realised. This may be no bad thing actually. The unions could use the political levy to support the Greens, Monster Raving Loonies or whatever, Labour could be re-branded National Democratic Labour Party before eventually dropping the "Labour" bit and at least everyone would know where they stood. Well, those of us who don't already know that is.
