They made him an offer he couldn't refuse...

Ed Miliband was doing the rounds of regional party receptions last night, soaking up the applause and buoying the troops.

His relaxed tone – the way he could name check almost everyone in the room – was actually pretty impressive.

But there was a slight twitch of his eye-brow at the East Midlands reception when he was being introduced by the Tulo (The Trade Union & Labour Party Liaison Organisation) representative.

Just before calling Ed to speak he said: “And remember – unions are for life. Not just for elections.”

It felt a bit like that scene from The Godfather when Don Corleone agrees to do a favour for Bonasera the undertaker.

Don Corleone: “Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.”

In The Godfather the day did eventually come.
