Ahead of his major speech on reforming the relationships between the trades unions and Labour, party leader Ed Miliband wrote to party members. One surprised recipient of the email was Welsh Conservative leader, Andrew RT Davies.
He was particularly pleased by the Labour leader's opening comments:
Before I give my speech on Party reform this morning, I wanted you to be the first to know what I'm going to say.
A Welsh Conservative source says 'nice of Ed to contact Andrew first.'
