Union members will be more than a little alarmed at reports that union officials have been having secret talks with someone called Richard Balfe, who is Tory Leader Cameron’s ‘special envoy’ to the trade unions. Those who lived through the last Tory government and remember all too well their vicious attacks on trade union rights as part of their plan to destroy the union movement will be amazed, to say the least, at the fact that a) the Tories have a trade union envoy and b) that some of our leaders are prepared to talk to him.
