Unite has elected a new leader, to replace the duo of Tony Woodley and Derek Simpson.
The new leader, Len McCluskey (a hardliner), was elected by a "staggering" 7% of the membership.
"Democracy" in action the Unite way!
Those members of staff, and long suffering customers, of BA who hope that a change in leadership may bring about peace will be sorely disappointed.
McCluskey has been running the strike since day one, and on his assumption of power has announced his messianic "vision":
"My first task now will be to bring our union together and unite it in a campaign against the devastation the Government is unleashing against working people and their communities throughout the land."
I suspect that the 93% of Unite members who didn't vote for this person may well regret the day that he was elected.
