The government needs to get off its backside and step in to help Redcar steel. We should support good long term British industries. The government should stop wasting taxpayers’ money on less serious and stupid projects to fund this. Choose any of them Foreign Aid, Quangos, EU contributions, HS2 or the Barnett formula.
We need short term help to keep a long term asset. This is the first test of the government’s northern powerhouse and there inaction proves it’s just an empty pathetic sound bite. The government needs to put its money where its mouth is.
These EU rules should be ignored too, Italy and France ignored them to save their steel industries Britain should do the same.
