Labour is becoming “irrelevant to workers” and it is now hard to justify handing the party millions in funding, the head of the party’s biggest union donor has warned.In an interview with the Observer, Sharon Graham, the general secretary of Unite, said she felt Labour’s leadership was, in effect, “sticking two fingers up” at workers with its response to strike action and its abandonment of pledges to renationalise public utilities.Graham was reacting after Keir Starmer provoked anger on the left by sacking Sam Tarry MP, a shadow transport minister.

Tarry’s dismissal followed his statement that workers deserved a pay rise that matched inflation, a claim he made while joining rail workers on a picket line last week.
