Only One Thing To Say
I have scanned the news of Wales this week, and I find that there’s nothing more important than the closure of our Port Talbot steelworks.
Yes, the Wasteminster government in London is bring up all sorts of reasons why they can’t save the plant. Some of those reasons as nearly plausible, too. But, basically, the Tories are trying to get into the good books of China for materialistic reasons.
Also, this closure could be another step to purposely break down strong communities. Look what happened when the miners – and their families – in The Valleys showed the strength of their communities in opposing Milk Snatcher Thatcher.
There was strength of purpose among those miners – which was one of the hidden reasons for the Tories to close the mines.
You see, when people work together, they discuss the issues which affect them and their families. They and their families chat about those issues “over the garden wall” and in the pubs. That is how the Trades Union Movement evolved: talking together and working together for the common good.
Lots of ordinary working-folk – as well as caring politicians – have suggested, both publicly and privately, that the way to stop the closure of Port Talbot’s major industry is to Nationalise the plant. But d’you think a London-based Tory government will do that? Neither do I.
This column is read by people who do not live in our land or, indeed, in the British Isles, so I publish this link which may help those good folk to understand what is happening in and to Wales.
