I wish to express an unbiased view of the issue regarding the closure of steel works at Middlesborough.
1. ultimate ownershipresponsibility of the steelworks is TATA - which is an indian company which Rajendra Pachauri is a key player - he wants to transfer more steel production to india - less constraints under co2 regulation and financial benefit from UK funding of dismantling production in uk and transfer to india - this is factual just look at the internet - Tata knows how to manipulate and advantagesise itself under the Co2 capping scheme - the losers as always are the workers not the political encumbants be it UK or India most honorable (RH) representatives

To BBC Question Time: I tried to leave a comment on your site, but my location - Southport - could not be validated. Tom Conti's remark regarding "civilised" actions of the coalition forces as opposed to "Russians, who didn't care whom they killed" made me sick. For his information US waged a war against communism and lured SU into Afghanistan using it as a theatre, according to the US ex-Secretary of State Bsezinsky. CIA were busy setting up Al-Qaeda cells and training camps in Pakistan, while UK provided asylum to radical muslim clerics and air hijackers. The Soviet goals of war were explained to the people in similar terms as now - fighting terrorism, drugs and Vakhabism. There were plenty of West-armed militants for the Soviets to fight with. And if Soviets indeed did not care who they killed they had a chance to win the war. But anyway in any case Russians DO NOT KILL CIVILIANS, has Tom Conti heard of World War II?
