The leader of Britain's opposition Labour party, Ed Miliband, revealed plans on Saturday to further reduce the influence of trade unions on the party.Miliband proposes to scrap this and give every member of the centre-left party a direct vote for a new leader.The reforms build on his plans announced last year to change the party's financial ties with the trade unions, which helped found Labour in 1900 .When the move was announced last July, media reports suggested Labour nets £8 million (nine million euros, $12 million) a year from almost three million union workers -- the majority of the party's funds.
