The great Indian take away for Redcar Steel workers [by John Bean]

[The British people are losing jobs to Third World countries.]

By John Bean, 20 February 2010

The closure of the steel plant at Redcar, near Middlesborough, has resulted in another 1,700 British workers — most of them skilled — joining at least two million industrial workers whose jobs have been lost by Tory and Labour government’s embrace of globalisation.

They told us that the jobs and national income we would lose through selling our manufacturing industry to overseas bidders would be offset by increasing our service industries and specialising in high tech manufacturing. The reality is that the service sector brings in less than ten per cent of overseas earnings — and employs virtually zero ex-steel workers, coal miners, or Birmingham metal bashers. As for high tech manufacturing, they soon found that Germany and Japan had cornered most of the market.

It is only the BNP that is committed to protecting the remains of our manufacturing g industries, by tariffs where necessary. In the case of a vital sector such as steel making we believe that the costs of keeping it running would be offset by keeping its workers in employment — who would also be paying their NHS insurance and income tax.

Britain’s loss — India’s gain

Corus (formerly British Steel) is a subsidiary of the Tata Group, India’s largest business empire. What you won’t read in our national press, or hear discussed on mainstream TV, is that by closing down the Redcar steelworks it will receive around £600 million in ‘credits’ from the World Bank because of the carbon emissions this is alleged to save. The financing of these ‘carbon credits’ (all part of the global warming scam) comes under the United Nation’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).

Now what is really outrageous (apart from not hearing one word of criticism from the Lib-Lab-Con or the UKIP clowns) is that 1,700 British jobs have been lost on Teesside so that in India the same £600 million in UN CDM credits could be received by Tata for building a steelworks of similar capacity to Redcar in Orissa.
