If ever proof were needed that we are getting screwed

This has got to be the biggest kick in the teeth since the 'credit crunch' hit, it really beggars belief! I have just read an article where it has been revealed that the construction of a new power station at Stalythorpe near Newark, Nottinghamshire has incurred the wrath of the union Unite over the startling revelation that out of the 850 jobs on offer during the building 500 are being given to Polish, Hungarian, Spanish and Portuguese builders.

To add insult to injury, the power station is to be owned by Npower, a subsidiary of the German energy firm RWE, which as I reported the other day, has raised energy prices by 50% in the UK but by only about 5% in Germany. Now I already know the answer to this but I will ask it anyway. Does anyone think that this German firm, who produce energy in Britain, will charge us any less for it or will they pass on the cost benefits of a state-of-the-art power station to their fellow Germans?

  1. The extreme left-wing dhimmi Runnymede Trust has claimed that white disadvantage has nothing to do with race:

    "'The white working classes are discriminated against on a range of different fronts, including their accent, their style, the food they eat, the clothes they wear, the social spaces they frequent, the postcode of their homes, possibly even their names,' it said. 'But they are not discriminated against because they are white.'

    The Runnymede Trust's main claim to fame (or notoriety) is coining the word 'Islamophobia' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runnymede_Trust
