Jim Murphy launched a broadside attack on Unite boss Len McCluskey as he announced he will resign as leader of the Scottish Labour party.
Mr Murphy said that while trade unionists were "a source of enormous strength and moral purpose" to Labour, the party should not be beholden "to one man."
One of the things about stepping down is that you can say things in public that so many people in the Labour party only say in private. So whether it's in Scotland and the contest to come across the UK. We cannot have our leaders selected - or de-selected - by the grudges and grievances of one prominent man.
The leader of the Scottish Labour party doesn't serve at the grace of Len McCluskey. And the next leader of the UK Labour party should not be picked by Len McCluskey.
Trade union Unite has announced a further £1 million donation to Labour, bringing the total given to Ed Miliband's party to £3.5 million since December.
The union's executive has previously expressed their concern the current Government could be re-elected on a "tide of big business cash" while Labour remained under-resourced.
The head of the Unite union, Rachael Maskell, has said that the plan published by the NHS today makes it clear that it will not avoid a funding black hole.
[NHS England head] Simon Stevens makes precious little mention of the plummeting morale of the 1.3 million workforce, which is becoming a worrying pattern for this Government with its continued failure to invest in skills, retention and development.
In the last four years, the NHS has been battered by the funding crisis, resulting in £20 billion being sucked out of the service during this parliament.
The picture remains very bleak and it is clear that the plan will not plug the predicted £30 billion financial black hole by 2020/21.
