Biased BBC has an interesting post about the real reason for the closure of Redcar Steelworks with the potential loss of 10,000 jobs. It seems the boss stated that the reason is EU emissions trading rules.
Meanwhile it seems that the Netherlands is the beneficiary.
The British have a history of fair play, of doing things by the rules, which has historically served the country well. But now, in the age of an all encompassing European Union and aggressive religious minorities, is it time that the British started to realise that if you sit back and do nothing, hoping for the best, you just end up getting screwed over?
