Quarter of a million jobs gone under Labour

MANUFACTURING industry in Britain is bleeding to death. That's what the leader of one of Britain's biggest unions says. John Edmonds of the general workers' GMB union said this week, "Ministers must wake up. UK industry is not facing an inflation crisis or a sterling crisis. It is facing a manufacturing crisis on a scale not seen since the dark days of Thatcherism." Edmonds spoke out with thousands of car workers at Ford and Rover facing the sack. Asset-strippers Alchemy looked set to take Rover over at the end of this week, and multinational giant Ford is set to announce the effective closure of its Dagenham plant in Essex.
