BNP's Burberry promise
Monday, January 01, 2007
Never mind Plaid and Labour vying to become Burberry's saviour, the BNP reckon they are the only party who could guarantee the 300 jobs in the Rhondda.
Their party newspaper says:
Only the BNP would save their jobs by levelling the playing field through import tariffs which would wipe out the advantage of using cheap Third World labour instead of British workers to produce the goods that are sold in our shops.

It's interesting that the newspaper uses the phrase "third world", rather than say NICs (Newly Industrialized Countries).
In terms of cost verses quality, china has become much more efficient at producing fabrics. Economics states that importing products which other countries are better at is good for the economy.
Surely a Burberry closure was on the radar for many years.
Do political parties have scenario plans for this sort of closure?

I assume they do, since the closure is virtually guaranteed. Then again, this area qualified once more for Objective 1 EU funding recently. If there's a plan it's being well hidden.pvbbdfh
