Labour's former deputy leader John Prescott has welcomed Ed Miliband's proposals to change the party's relationship with the trade unions.
Mr Prescott compared is proposals to the dramatic moves to introduce "one-member one-vote" (Omov) elections for the party leader under John Smith and end the Clause 4 commitment to nationalisation under Mr Blair.
Great speech from Ed. Change is always controversial, like OMOV was 20 years ago & Clause 4 in 94. But let's have the debate! #BoldLabour
