FIRST it was 'ending boom and bust', now it is 'British jobs for British workers' that has come back to haunt New Labour.
The anger over the employment of 400 Italian and Portuguese contract workers at an oil refinery in North Lincolnshire is fully understandable.
It includes both revolutionary and reactionary elements at the same time.
Working class people have finally learnt from the French that industrial action is necessary.

My experience of members of the Fenland Labour Party is that they are sheep that support their party leaders just like some people support a football team.
I'd therefore be very interested to hear whether New Labour members in Fenland support their party's demand of 'British jobs for British workers'.
