Labour leader Ed Miliband says he is “totally against” the general strike being proposed by the Unite union.
He told ITV News: “I think it’s a terrible idea… I’m totally against a general strike.”
Miliband added: “We are funded by individual levy payers who are trade union members, who support the Labour Party.
“But a general strike is a very bad idea for the country – I’m totally against it, I’m very clear about that.”
The Labour leader has issued a stinging attack on Len McCluskey, the leader of the Unite union, a big Labour donor.
Ed Miliband won't get rid of Ed Balls despite an ITV News poll showing voters would rather David Cameron and George Osborne run the economy.
