“British jobs for british worker”.

Legions of cops were called in to guard chanting, placard-waving strikers as fury spread nationwide over the employment of foreign contractors to build a giant UK oil plant.

Protests began as the first of 400 Italian workers arrived to begin work on a £200million extension at the Lindsey Oil Refinery near Immingham, Lincs. Around 1,000 demonstrators gathered in front of a police cordon at the plant to demand jobs for British workers on the site.

Within hours they were backed by protesters staging sympathy walkouts at refineries, power stations and oil and gas plants from Scotland to the South coast.

PM Gordon Brown was facing the brunt of the backlash after pledging “British jobs for British workers” in a keynote speech 18 months ago. And Environment Secretary Hilary Benn appeared to support the protests, saying workers were “entitled to an answer”.

The crisis comes with Britain in the grip of the credit crunch. Ministers fear the BNP is using the row to capitalise on its racist message.

 BNP chairman Nick Griffin’s business partner is a convicted Italian terrorist called Roberto Fiore, who came to London to escape arrest for his involvement in an Italian Nazi group that blew up Bologna railway station in 1980, injuring over 200 and murdering a further 85 people. Here we see this terrorist scumbag (in the blue sweater) back in Italy being regaled with Nazi salutes by braindead football hooligans.

After he emigrated to London Roberto Fiore became close friends and shared a flat with Nick Griffin, who was then leader of the National Front and is now chairman of the BNP. Nick Griffin and Roberto Fiore set-up another weirdo political sect called the International Third Position, and, despite NF and BNP “opposition” to immigrants coming to the UK and taking British jobs and housing, with typical hypocrisy, Nick Griffin and Roberto Fiore made millions running an agency called “Easy London” (Londra Facile) that finds jobs and housing for immigrants arriving in Britain!

BNP supporters who’ve been suckered into falling for Nick Griffin’s constant appeals for extra donations may like to know that Roberto Fiore also runs a language school in London called CL English Language, with Nick Griffin’s accountant father Edgar Griffin (who is also a BNP activist) and the BNP chairman’s mother Jean Griffin running the company finances. The BNP claims it isn’t Fascist, racist, Nazi or violent – BNP leaders just happen to make money organising immigration into Britain, and BNP leaders just happen to be close friends with Nazi terrorists. Other convicted terrorists include BNP officials Tony Lecomber, Lambertus Nieuwhof and Robert Cottage.

The BNP attitude to “democracy” is equally hypocritical – as the BNP only started supporting democracy after the introduction Proportional Representation – a system which sets out to give minority parties a small slice of political power, but which can by accident give small parties the ability to swing “hung” parliaments, so exercising an influence on mainstream politics out of all proportion to their actual level of public support. Proportional Representation is used in ISRAEL and ITALY – countries which have both (surprise surprise) also suffered from decades of violent extremism.

The alleged BNP love affair with democracy and free speech etc is all SPIN, as Section 3 of the BNP Constitution (“Party Leadership”) states that the “National Chairman shall have ultimate and final authority upon any decision” – in other words when push comes to shove, the BNP Führer rules!

How low the world has gone.Are we going in the right way?

British pensioners receive charity from Iceland.

Welcome to England

29/01/2009

elderly-ladyIcelanders have donated an entire shipping container full of woolly jumpers, socks and blankets to British pensioners, as winter’s chill increases their chances of dying in under-heated homes.

The Sun newspaper reports that Icelanders were spurred to action after a radio programme revealed that as many as one in 12 British pensioners are at risk of dying in the winter cold. The container is due to arrive on Monday.

So when Icelandic DJ Heimir Karlsson launched an ‘Icelandic Wool to England’ (Islensk Ull til Englands) campaign the donations flooded in.

The campaign started when an Icelander living in Manchester called in to Karlsson’s Bítid radio show on Bylgjan FM to say how badly OAPs in Britain suffer in the cold weather.

Around 25,000 elderly people in England and Wales died of cold related illnesses between December 2007 and March 2008, with around one in three pensioners classed as living in fuel poverty.

“This is a fantastic and generous act of compassion from the people of Iceland, particularly at a time when their own economic situation is extremely difficult,” said Neil Duncan-Jordan, spokesman for Britain’s National Pensioners Convention. The Icelandic donations will be handed over to British officials in Hull which is twinned with Reykjavik.

Icelandic broadcaster, Heimir Karlsson, who helped organise the appeal, said: “When we broadcast the story that UK pensioners were dying from the cold, our listeners could not believe their own ears.
“The elderly deserve to live their last years enjoying the best of care. They deserve to live in warm housing, free from worries over cold and rising gas bills. The Icelandic people heard about how terribly the UK government treats the pensioners, and could not just do nothing about it.”

Turkish PM cutted off by Davos censorship in Gaza row

Recep Tayyip Erdogan clashed with Shimon Peres, whose voice had risen as he made an impassioned defence of Israel’s actions, jabbing his finger.

Mr Erdogan said Mr Peres had spoken so loudly to conceal his “guilt”.

He accused the moderator of not allowing him to speak and said he did not think he would return to Davos.

The Turkish PM stressed later that he had left the debate not because of his disagreements with Mr Peres but because he had been given much less time to speak than the Israeli leader.

Turkey is one of the few Muslim countries to have dealings with Israel, but relations have been under strain since the Islamist-rooted AK Party was elected to power in 2002.

Late on Thursday, a WEF official said that Mr Peres and Mr Erdogan had spoken by mobile telephone, and both men now considered the matter closed.

Dinner time

In the debate, Mr Erdogan was cut off as he attempted to reply to Mr Peres.

Palestinian children reportedly injured in an Israeli missile attack lie in hospital in Khan Younis, Gaza, 29 January
Many of the casualties in Gaza have been children, doctors say

Earlier the Turkish Prime Minister had made an address himself, describing Gaza as an “open-air prison”.

When the audience applauded Mr Peres, he said: “I find it very sad that people applaud what you said. You killed people. And I think that it is very wrong.”

The moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, had given him a minute to reply, then asked him to finish, saying that people needed to go to dinner.

“I do not think I will be coming back to Davos after this because you do not let me speak,” Mr Erdogan shouted before marching off the stage in front of Mr Peres, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and an elite audience of ministers and international officials.

Mr Peres had told the audience Israel was forced on to the offensive against Hamas by thousands of rockets and mortars fired into Israel.

“The tragedy of Gaza is not Israel, it is Hamas,” the Israeli leader said.

“Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza. Why did they fight us, what did they want? There was never a day of starvation in Gaza.”

He argued that Mr Erdogan would have reacted in the same way if rockets had hit Istanbul.

More than 1,300 Palestinians and 14 Israelis were killed during the three-week conflict which began on 27 December.

Mr Erdogan later complained that he had been allowed to speak for just 12 minutes compared with 25 for Mr Peres.

“I did not target at all in any way the Israeli people, President Peres or the Jewish people,” he said.

“I am a prime minister,a leader who has expressly stated that anti-Semitism is a crime against humanity.”

Over million strike in France demanding job protection

* Strikers call for wage boost
* Flights cancelled, national and regional train services disrupted
PARIS: More than a million French workers walked off the job Thursday on a national day of strikes and protests against President Nicolas Sarkozy’s handling of the economic crisis.

 

Billed as a “Black Thursday”, the day of action stopped short of paralysing the Paris transport network, but strike turnout was high with 23 percent of France’s five million public sector workers downing tools. Many in France fear they will lose their jobs in a crisis they blame on bankers and the failures of the market, and are demanding protection from layoffs, a boost to low wages and an end to public sector cutbacks.

Teacher strikes shut down hundreds of schools, forcing parents to stay home to mind their children, while thousands more public and private sector workers took a day off to avoid the disruption. Public support for the protests remains high, and trade unions were predicting huge crowds to join around 200 street marches planned for later Thursday across the country. Officials said just over a third of teachers, a quarter of postal, telecoms and state electricity workers and 15 percent of air traffic controllers were on strike.

Unions said 40 percent of the national SNCF network’s staff walked out. A third of flights out of Paris’ second airport Orly were cancelled, but remaining services from there and the larger Charles de Gaulle were delayed only by around half-and-hour, as much by thick fog as by the strike. Inside the city, around three-quarters of Metro trains were running on the underground network, along with 85 percent of buses and all trams and airport shuttle services, management told AFP.

Suited workers biked or skated to work to avoid the disruption, with officials reporting a 150 percent surge in use of the city’s hugely popular cycle rental network, Velib. There was more trouble on the RER commuter rail network bringing workers into the city, with one branch line fully closed and as few as one in five trains running on others. But arriving in Paris, many commuters were unperturbed by the disruption and many expressed support for the strikers, even as they headed to work.

“I’m tired and frozen after waiting half-an-hour on the platform, but I’m prepared to accept that, when it’s a movement to defend our spending power and jobs,” said 34-year-old secretary Sandrine Dermont. “I’ll join the street protests during my lunch break,” she added, as she pulled in to Saint Lazare station in Paris. “I can’t march because it would be held against me at work,” said Patrick Laine, a 42-year-old administrator at an insurance firm.
In France’s second city of Marseille the Metro was closed, but in Lille eight buses in 10 were working and in Bordeaux and Lyon trams and subways were operating at around half capacity. National and regional train services were disrupted, though not as badly as had been expected. Rail firm SNCF predicted that 60 percent of high-speed TGV services would run, and 40 percent of regional trains. Eurostar services to London and the Thalys to Belgium and the Netherlands and the Alleo to Germany were not expected to suffer delays, but the Lyria line to Switzerland was to run at between a third and a half capacity.

Iranian leader demands US apology

_45420188_ahmadinejad_afp2261The US “stood against the Iranian people in the past 60 years”, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said during an address in the western region of Khermenshah.

“Those who speak of change must apologise to the Iranian people and try to repair their past crimes,” he said.

The US president has offered to extend a hand if Iran “unclenched its fist”.

President Barack Obama discussed the possibility of a softening of US policy towards Iran in an interview recorded with a Saudi-owned Arabic TV network on Monday.

Mr Ahmadinejad will, as expected, stand for re-election in June, close aide Aliakbar Javanfekr told Reuters news agency on Wednesday.

Strong tirade

America’s crimes against Iran, the Iranian leader said in his televised speech, included support for the Iranian coup of 1953 and backing for Saddam Hussein in the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s.

God willing, he [George W Bush] has gone to hell 

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

The Iranian president welcomed the possibility of US change, but said it should be “fundamental and effective” rather than just a change of tactics.

The remarks are the first Iranian comment on the US since Mr Obama took office eight days ago.

Bolivian president Morales claims victory in referendum and UN secretary applauds it.

UNITED NATIONS, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hailed on Tuesday the “peaceful climate” in Bolivia’s referendum on a new Constitution.

    “He applauds the peaceful climate that prevailed during the voting as well as the high level of participation, and congratulates the people of Bolivia for this demonstration of civic responsibility,” said a statement issued by Ban’s press office.

    The secretary-general urged “all political leaders in Bolivia to work together henceforth to build a prosperous and inclusive future for their country.”

    The UN system will continue to assist the government and the people of Bolivia to face the challenges ahead, he added.

    Bolivians went to the polls on Sunday to vote on the constitution which would give more power to the country’s indigenous majority, promote reform on agricultural land and allow President Evo Morales to seek re-election for another term.

    Preliminary results showed that about 60 percent of voters voted for the new Constitution.
