I can add only two things: (a) TATA the owners are set to make a killing in carbon credits [EU Referendum] by closing the plant
The contrast between the manic, expensive and misplaced activism to “save” the banks, subsidising bankers and their bonuses to a fault, and the hand wringing inactivity over the steelworks is stark.
...and (b) can you imagine the uproar if the Conservatives were letting this happen?
That this is not a major, front-page scandal should be a source of amazement. We are paying an electricity "tax" of the order of £1.5 billion to an Indian steelmaker, for the privilege of have the production in the UK closed down and the work transferred to India.
