Blair says he won’t interfere in Miliband’s union plans

Tony Blair refused to be drawn on Ed Miliband’s plans to change union affiliations from “opt-out” to “opt-in”:

“I think he is going to make a speech on this and the last thing he needs is advice from me.

“One of my experiences is, when you are about to make a major initiative as leader of the party, the last thing you need are voices off… if you forgive me I am not going to queer his pitch.”
