The Labour leader, Ed Miliband has insisted he is "absolutely determined" to redefine his party's relationship with the unions.

Addressing the TUC Congress, Mr Miliband said he wants union members to opt-in to Labour affiliation, rather than be automatically signed-up by their union, and become a 'real part' of the Labour party.

But some party members believe this is the wrong strategy at the wrong time.
