The Irony of Charlie Whelan's Flight Plans
Highly ironic that my old friend from Sunday Service days, Charlie Whelan, is praying for his flight not to be cancelled over snow, when his brothers in arms are intent on causing chaos for so many holidaymakers this year. Charlie Whelan, for the uninitiated, is political officer of UNITE, the union behind the BA strike. And as political officer, he doles out unon funds to Labour candidates in marginal seats. He's an increasingly popular man.
