Britain Awake!

PM will lose one more job... his own

LABOUR will be WIPED OUT at the next election because of anger over foreign workers taking British jobs, warned one of the party’s most respected MPs last night.

Ex-Welfare Minister Frank Field told the News of the World: “Failure to deliver British jobs to British workers could wipe Labour out.

“Labour must get a grip now — otherwise their actions will feed the British National Party.”

Wildcat strikes have exploded across Britain in protest over hundreds of Italian and Portuguese workers snapping up precious jobs on a £200 million oil refinery project.

Mass demonstrations are expected to sweep the country again next week, spreading outside the energy sector.

Gordon Brown sparked fury yesterday by slamming the strikes as “indefensible”.

He claimed: “No government is doing more to try and find ways that we can help people who are unemployed back into work as quickly as possible.”

In an interview today he also claims: “We are better placed. The reason is we’ve got low interest rates, low inflation, low public debt.” But union leaders slammed the PM as out of touch. Unite officer Bernard McAuley warned: “If we lose this battle our industry will go to the wall.

“We want jobs to be given to local people first. We have got to make the government understand.” Furious workers will regroup at the Lindsey refinery near Immingham, Lincs, before dawn on Monday as the revolt grows.

Paul Kenny, GMB General Secretary, said last night: “Unless we get a commitment from the government to help engineering and construction workers, we will have more trouble.”But Business Secretary Peter Mandelson said: “It would be a huge mistake to retreat from a policy where UK companies can operate in Europe and European companies can operate here.

“Protectionism would be a sure fire way of turning recession into depression.”

I hope the workers go all the way without backing down. The unions are traitors.

The Tories appear to be offering nothing different from Labour.

No suprises there. The Tories and their friends of Israel hate protectionism. They prefer capitalism with a capital C

The summit taking place in April? Will be like the 4th of July when the molotovs start flying.

The unions are shitting themselves and terrified of revealing to the British workforce that they're on the side of Johnny foreigner. The BNP should act swiftly to expose what these peoples unions have been doing.

BNP stands accused over leaflet drops
Feb 2 2009 by Richard Down, Liverpool Daily Post

FAR-RIGHT activists have been accused of “political intimidation” after encouraging neighbours to confront a prominent anti-racist campaigner in his own home.

About 20 members of the newly-formed far right group Wirral British National Party dropped 2,500 leaflets in Wallasey close to Merseyside Trade Union Congress leader Alec McFadden’s home.

The leaflets urge people to confront Mr McFadden at his home and the maildrop coincided with him being in Liverpool at the front of an anti-racism rally.

The only people at home were Mr McFadden’s two teenage daughters, who have been brought up in the Jewish faith.

Mr McFadden said: “They knew that I was leading the march, so they chose the moment to give these leaflets out, also knowing I’m a single parent with two teenage daughters.”

Mr McFadden was repeatedly stabbed to the face and torso in front of his now 16-year-old daughter, on the doorstep of his home in May, 2006.

He believes the assailant was a fascist sympathiser and has had to alter his day-to-day life to ward off future attacks by such “radical thugs”.

Police have had to intervene after a neo-Nazi website featured pictures of Mr McFadden and he received death threats.

This weekend, Chief Supt Steve Ashley said the force was aware that leaflets were distributed in an area of Wallasey on Saturday.

He said: “The content is being reviewed to determine if any criminal offence has been committed, and police patrols have been stepped up in the area.”

The latest pressure being applied on the trade union leader comes as the issue of “jobs from British workers” dominates many of the national papers.

Wirral BNP literature says: “Instead of defending British Workers, McFadden was holding an anti-racism/anti-BNP march in Liverpool while workers were being made redundant.”

They accuse him of being unpatriotic and allowing jobs to fall into the hand of immigrants while British people lose out in the current economic downturn.

But Mr McFadden emphatically denies this.

He said: “In January and February, 2008, I did the first case in Britain for young men when Polish workers were brought in on half the wages of British workers. I won the case, earning them thousands of pounds.

“I stand up for the fair treatment of workers, whoever they are. There is no excuse for what has been going on. My children shouldn’t have to face intimidation for any reason.

“My daughters were very upset when they heard about this.”

A neighbour and the National Union of Journalists leader in Merseyside, Mike Studley, said the incident was “an appalling act of political intimidation.”

Hi,

To read the papers you would be would wonder what the government can do to stop the wildcat strikes against foreign workers. Don't be fooled by their media gravitas, feigned shock and wide eyed innocence. These politicians, big companies and unions know only too well what is going on here.

As I don't think it will be published I have copied here a comment I have just put to the Daily Mail on their article (this link http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1133107/Gordon-Brown-condemns-wildcat-strikes-foreign-workers-Britain.html#comments )

I don't think it will be published because I don't think the media want to let the cat out of the bag any more than those other "Leaders of British (sic) Industry"

----------comment starts ----------

"I've read a lot about this now and NOBODY is talking about the root of the problem. This is CONTRACT LAW. The Big Companies are acting all innocent. Time to let the cat out of the bag (if this gets printed!). Here's the con. We have Union rates in this country. But when the contract is given to a company in another country they are allowed to pay their workers below those minimum rates. That cannot happen with British contractors. Foreign companies can even pay their staff below our legal minimum wage. Cheap foreign contracts is why these big companies are making everything into contracts now instead of employing individual workers. When the contract is finished the foreign workers either go on the dole, go home (possibly?) or become part of a new contract. That's the con - and the politicians, the big companies AND the unions know all about it! They should be ashamed. This is NO level playing field for British workers - no matter what they may try to claim."

(ps - comment above still not published in Daily Mail on line issue 12 hours after submission. So - no surprise there.)
