I knew the British had it in them. I have to say I am absolutely over the moon over the strike action and stance taken by the British workers furious and outraged over a decision to bring in 100s of Italian and Portuguese contractors to work on a new £200m plant at the Lindsey oil refinery in North Lincolnshire.
While Gordon Brown was getting a cold sweat today over the audacity of British men getting upset over foreigners taking ours/their jobs, he was quite obviously trying to spin a yarn stating that he is trying to do everything possible to sort the situation out. There is nothing Gordon Brown can do apart from sending all the cheap immigrant foregners back to where they come from, its as simple as that!
A list of striking areas below.
STAYTHORPE, NOTTS. Hundreds out at the giant power station near Newark.
MILFORD HAVEN, WALES. Work on the giant South Hook and Dragon liquefied natural gas terminals halted by mass walkouts.
WARRINGTON, LANCS. Protests reported at the Fiddlers Ferry power plant, but no picket line visible at 1 p.m..
ABERTHAW, BARRY. Power station walkout.
MOSSMARAN, SCOTLAND. Workers at the terminal north of Edinburgh have downed tools.
St FERGUS, ABERDEENSHIRE. Workers at the giant gas terminal out on protest.
DOUNREAY, THURSO. Reports of workers downing tools to support the call for “British Jobs for British Workers”.
MOTHERWELL BRIDGE, SCOTLAND. Angry workers “on the fence” - ready to walk out but waiting for just a few more signs that the protest is truly national.
SELLAFIELD NUCLEAR PLANT, CUMBRIA. Meeting this morning expresses huge sympathy for construction workers, anger over the growing use of foreign cheap labour, and a readiness to come out in solidarity if workers are victimised or the strike grows.
