    More cheap foreign imports. Taking Back Control!

    The government was on Saturday night accused of dealing a hammer blow to the struggling British steel industry in the name of Brexit and free trade, as a fresh political row blew up over plans to allow more cheap foreign imports into the UK.

    that protections inherited from the EU to safeguard UK producers be ended imminently by the government. :eek:

    the EU had just renewed its protections on Friday meant the UK steel industry would be even more exposed if ministers acted on official advice. “The TRA’s decision to terminate steel safeguards for half of the product categories exposes the UK’s steel sector to uncontrolled surges in imports and is a hammer blow.”

    All those Brexit voting Steel Workers time to brush off your CVs and retrain into Cyber Security. (y)

    Lots of interesting career choices coming up, eg. lorry drivers or fruit pickers.
