Rats Leaving A Sinking Ship…

More bad news for Gordon:
Labour's traditional supporters are deserting the party in "droves", with public sector workers joining the "exodus", a new poll suggests.

Research for Unison showed that almost half of supporters who have regularly voted Labour are now less likely to support the party.

The Ipsos Mori poll of more than 1,000 adults showed that 19% of public sector workers were less likely to vote Labour than in 2005.

Yeah, this is probably a shot across the bows by union leaders - 'do as we say or there'll be trouble'. I wonder what the question actually asked...?

If Gordon dangles a fat bribe as a result, they'll be whipping their members into line quick enough!
