I fell off my barstool-

I stand corrected today.

Today in ole Blighty roughly 2000 people across three cities walked off the job to protest the Italian Job up north.

What you mean GI?

A refinery contracted out a management contract to a USA company.  The Yanks sub-contracted it out to an Italian company.  The Brits are in an uproar because our Italian ‘boat hotel’ living brothers are taking British jobs.

Although I’m not a fan of the BNP or Gordon ‘slip of the tongue’ Brown- it was good to see people- British Bulldogs – standing up for something of variable substance.

According to EU law, EU residents can live and work anywhere in the EU- so why all the fuss? The Italians work here legally.  Big Deal?

I imagine it becomes a bigger deal when Honda in Swindon closed today for four months leaving their employees on 85% pay until June when they intend to restart the factory.  Hopefully they will receive some Gobment bail out money to help them re-start the factory.  I sent them a letter saying George and Hank have 330 billion floating around and Honda may be able to get a sub from them.

When the BBC states on national news that an SME is actually a company making 000’s (hundreds of millions)- I shudder to think that many people in positions of responsibility have a grip on the reality facing us.

I put my Gobment bailout money under my car seat today- all 57 pence of it.  Saving it for a rainy day.
