"Legal adviser",

For a strike to be legal, surely it has to be "official" and voted for by the union membership at large - and I suggest that there has been no ballot in this case.

Tim, I am a strong Tory always have been and always will be BUT I completely disagree with your post. We should support the strikers on this issue. I cannot ever envisage a situation were British workers will be taking the jobs of foreigners in their own country. The EU has been a disaster for British workers. We just cannot carry on as a country, economically, when the whole of Europe is in theory entitled to come and work here. Along with generous working benefits we are in a nightmare. We have between 5-7 million British people currently out of work and claiming benefit yet the number of foreigners in work is growing, how can this be justified? It is no longer the case that there are jobs out there that Brits won't do. I have been unemployed for more than a year I desperately want to become a nurse and have the right qualifications for a diploma course at university but being a mature student I have to show experience of working in healthcare. I have applied for many many low paid healthcare assistant jobs in hospitals care homes etc but have not got the jobs. When I go for interviews the places are full of foreigners doing the non skilled jobs I want to do. I would never vote for a far right party but the Tories ahve to get a grip on this issue and fast. No other country would put upi with the situation we have got at the moment. The likes of the oil strikers are the very people the Tories need to vote for them and the people who would've voted for Thatcher.

It will be interesting to see the result of your poll. Seems like DC and you are some way behind the curve on this one.

The political future divide is between nationalism and internationalism. Tories have always been the nationalist party (except 1950 - 1975).

And we all know who the Internationalist parties draw their (warped) inspiration from, Karl Mark. Even China know better than to dilute its nationalism.

Let's stop cooperating with the Pinko's and furthering the ambitions of the commie's.

Worst comment on this thread David 1. British industry is not generally inefficient and if we followed your half witted advice the country would be bankrupt in a short period of time.For once stop thinking solely about yourself.

Malcolm isn't the country already bankrupt at least technically. In short it now need to borrow money to stay afloat. If I was in the position of owing more than a year's wages (as well as a mortgage) then I suspect I would be winding up my business interests shortly.

"British jobs for Italian workers today but there'll be Italian jobs for British workers tomorrow"

I do follow your point but who wants to go to Italy? its a direful place. Full of..well Italians. I don't imagine for one moment that our Latin friends and later day turn coat allies would appreciate us towing a ship to their land to house ill paid workers.
Worse they are an irritating bunch who proved how they really feel about England the other day. Most English people want to live and work in England after all its a demi-paradise. So sadly its jobs in England we want and S*d Italy for the socialist hell hole it will always be.

"The only foreign workers (and that includes EU workers) who should be allowed into Britain are the ones who are doing a job for which no suitable Brit is available."

Cheap and reliable Italians ARE more suitable than a bunch of bolshy British trades unionists.

That's presumably why they were hired in the first place.
