"Funny that. When the fat cats threaten to move out we declare that they must be unhindered in order to keep them here. Heaven forfend that we tax them much, if at all. When the miners and the shipyard workers and the steel workers threatened to strike to improve their pittance, they were "holding the country to ransom."

Well Steve it's quite simple really and not at all "funny". The miners and steelworkers were NOT "wealth producers" their respective industries were in decline and their product had become uncompetitive.

Not wholly the fault of the workers of course but the system doesn't do charity. Vote for capitalism and you get exactly what you deserve.
Welcome to the real world....someday.
