Derek Simpson will tell Unite's conference in Harrogate: ‘I have a feeling that Gordon Brown's ready to listen. Throughout the recession your client list will grow and you need support, support which the Conservatives have dismissed out of hand.

‘If David Cameron were prime minister, the recession would last till doomsday. There would be cuts in public spending, public servants would lose their jobs and vulnerable families would lose the support they desperately need.'
