Port Talbot worker: “It’s about time David Cameron got off his knees and stood up for Britain”

This is a great comment from a member of the Port Talbot Tata Steel workforce, in the light of the Conservative Government’s betrayal of the domestic steel industry.

David Neilly, 48, who came to Port Talbot after the Ravenscraig steelworks in Scotland closed in 1991, said: “The two aircraft carriers the Royal Navy is currently making could be the last two aircraft carriers where the steel is actually made in Britain. That’s all wrong. The contract for the frigates is absolutely disgraceful.

“There is no British steel being used for the new Hinkley Point power station, it’s all coming from the French.

“The same with the HS2 line, hundreds of miles of rail tracks and bridges – they all need steel to be built and we don’t seem to be figuring in it.

“It’s about time David Cameron got off his knees and stood up for Britain.”

    Cameron: “They’ve asked us for action on procuring more British steel – we’ve taken action on that”

    Did he lie? No, he has taken action, by buying from France, Sweden and China, (and who else)!

    Quite simply because it’s not a bank or someone e.g an US organisation wanting to soak the tax payer to run it, my heart goes out to these poor people. This government are lower than snakes belly. Whoever voted this shower in needs to go to confession and repent their sins.
