Unite leader urges 'fightback' against Bullingdon Boys

The leader of the Unite union has urged Labour party supporters to "fightback" against attacks on workers rights by former members of the Bullingdon Boys club.

Len McCluskey, the general secretary of Unite said: "If this Government continues to attack us and continues to restrict our rights, let me warn them that if they push us far outside the law let it be so on their own heads."
