So Britain's big three union bosses (the Bubs) have all spoken - their wise words.
And to a man - Len McCluskey (Unite), Paul Kenny (GMB) and Dave Prentis (Unison) all agree - they have been let down by the new Labour leader - Ed Miliband.
All now appear to think that Ed is a bit of a dud - so expect strong arm tactics to be deployed in an effort to turn the tide - maybe the Bubs will threaten to deny Labour more union money.
Who knows - but the Bubs are really angry that Ed says he is now accepting the coalition government's cuts agenda - and they variously describe the Labour leader as pretty useless and/or breathtakingly naive.
Which makes you wonder why they got him elected in the first place?
As most people know Ed's brother - David Miliband - actually won a majority of votes amongst ordinary party members and MPs - in the 2010 Labour leadership contest.
Which means that it was only through the votes of the big three public sector unions - Unite, GMB and Unison - that the younger Miliband was handed the Labour crown.
But in order to try and improve his standing with the wider voting public - who seem to think Ed is a bit of a 'goofball' - the Labour leader has decided to pick a fight with the same Bubs - who landed Ed the job in the first place.
Now some people might say - 'How's that for gratitude?' - but I think it just comes down to bad judgement on the part of Britain's 'big three' union bosses.
My absolute rule in all 'recruitment' situations is to support talent - the person whom I think is best suited for a job.
Basing big decisions on whether someone shares my politics and views - is a very dubious way to make key appointments.
Because when push comes to shove - when the going gets really tough - in my experience talent and integrity will always shine through.
Whereas playing to the gallery - telling people what they want to hear - is often a sign that down the road somewhere - things will start to unravel and even go disastrously wrong.
