Unite And Bank Rescues
Christopher Hope in the Telegraph notes that Derek Simpson, the joint general secretary of Unite, said the partial bank nationalisations "must be bound to undertakings by the banks of no job losses, no repossessions and an end to the bonus culture." Unite donated £1.5 million to Labour in the three months to June of 2008. That was 40% of Labour's donations for the second quarter.
