It appears that the peasants have reverted to solidarity strikes and random walkouts in heavy industry up and down the country (though correct me if I'm wrong - but I though secondary action was illegal? I'd laugh my fucking tits off if the bastards all got the sack) as they're upset that Johnny foreigner is getting the work (though they probably only have themselves to blame when the Wops are a better employment prospect that the average UK numpty)
So we now have the hilarious situation of the unions, who lets not forget are normally rabidly pro-EU, having to back their members in a dispute where they will be forced to criticise the EU for it's free trade. Oh the delicious joy of it all, compounded by the fact that Cyclops will have to bow to his union paymasters and fudge some solution (inevitably pissing off the EU who will doubtless threaten action) to keep the unions happy.
So how they can reconcile this:
Pat McFadden, minister for employment relations, said Mr Brown had not meant UK firms would be encouraged to flout European laws on free mobility of labour when he promised "British jobs for British workers"With this: -
Some of these companies ... are saying they will exclusively debar UK workers, they will not consider UK workers under any circumstances - Derek Simpson, Unite general secretary
Will be an even bigger joy. I believe the phrase "he who pays the piper call the tune" will now apply and nulabour will be fucked either way. Happy days. Expect the shit to hit the fan on Monday when the unions all get together and plan their next move, while the average heavy industry worker goes and has a chat to his local BNP rep.
