Remember how last year the Communication Workers Union threatened to withdraw its £1 million contribution to Labour unless the Government dropped plans to part-privatise the Royal Mail?

Lo and behold, as the BBC's Robert Peston has spotted, the measure has been dropped from Labour's manifesto, as page six of chapter two states:

"The Royal Mail and is staff are taking welcome and needed steps to modernise work practices. For the future, continuing modernisation and investment will be needed by the Royal Mail in the public sector."

How much else of the manifesto has been negotiated by the unions in return for keeping the party afloat?
