Unite: Time for Labour to 'get its together'

Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey has said Labour need to "get its act together" and prepare for a general election in 2014, a year earlier than the next poll in due.

The Labour Party would be sensible to prepare for an election. These are extraordinary times, none of us have been here before, no-one knows what is around the corner. Anything can happen, but I hope people don't forget the ineptitude of this government and the blame they are trying to put on workers for the economic crisis.
