Unions are a 'friend' of the Island

UK general elections like last week's contest inevitably impact on the Island, so says a former union head.

The Conservatives are seeking support from the Democratic Unionist Party to form a minority government after losing their House of Commons majority.

As a result, the Queen's Speech - which details the government's plans for the next few years - has been pushed back.

Bernard Moffatt says the sooner the current instability in the UK is resolved, the better all round, and shows the importance of rade unions.
