Stop Chinese steel dumping - Farage meets British steelworkers in Brussels


Published Feb 15, 2016

DSC_0014.jpgUKIP Leader Nigel Farage today joined protesters from all across Europe in a march against Chinese steel dumping onto the European market which is pushing prices down and making thousands of European steel workers redundant. Whilst on the march Nigel Farage commented: "It is pathetic that the British government must go cap in hand to beg the European Commission to prevent dumping of Chinese steel which is causing huge job losses. In a nutshell, it encapsulates why we must have control of our own destiny and a government directly accountable to the British people rather than an unelected Commissioner in Brussels.

"What people are forgetting here is that steel is a strategic industry. This is something in a time of crisis we need and if we lose it we’ve actually lost something fundamentally important."

“Even if George Osborne was a British Chancellor that wanted to stand up for the steel industry it wouldn’t matter because we are in a minority here. The problem is we are lobbying an unelected European Commission that no one can vote for and no one can sack.”
