As we know there have been major protests and comments from the trade union movement about this situation where the construction contract has been given to an Italian based company who, rather than use skilled local labour, are bring in Italian workers instead.
Derek Simpson of the ‘Unite’ union has called for urgent meetings with the Government and employers to discus the “exclusion” of British workers. He stated: “The Government must take urgent action to deal with this situation as tensions reach boiling point.” The only urgent action the Government can actually take is to send in the riot squad if things get out of control. Why? Because the power over this matter has been passed to the EU through the many treaties we have signed, each one making our elected Governments increasingly impotent, especially the Maastricht Treaty signed by John Major.
Derek Simpson can rant about this until he turns Tory blue in his socialist face, but he has only himself to blame for it by voting Labour all his life, just as all Tories have also created this situation by voting for their party too. They have to acknowledge the fact that these two parties are both pro-EU and all their actions in Government, beginning with Heath signing the accession to the Treaty of Rome, through to Gordon Brown signing the nasty Lisbon Treaty. By staying loyal to these political parties they have remained loyal to unelected governance by the EU.
It make you wonder how many of those who are out of work protesting about this actually voted for the one and only political party that can give them what they want, and the right for a British government to say: ‘British jobs for British workers’, which is of course UKIP. What they now have is British jobs for EU workers.
The Maastricht Treaty made us all unwillingly or unknowingly, EU citizens, just as those Italians who will be taking those British jobs are EU citizens too. In the EU’s bloodshot beady little eyes they may as well be complaining that Lincolnshire jobs have gone to Cambridgeshire workers as Britain now is nothing more than a collection of EU regions and our once great Parliament just somewhere for its obedient Tory, Labour and Liberal Democrat servants to rubber stamp EU orders.
Richard North over on the EU Referendum blog has written more on this situation. As far as all those protesters are concerned, sadly, they have only got what they have voted for, albeit unwittingly. There are no British jobs for British workers, there is no Britain – just the EU
