Usual over emotive response and generalisations from the above poster.

I wonder does he actually mean to challenge the evidence put before the Crown Court in the case of the Chinese Cockle pickers?

Is he actually attempting to deny the existence of Agencies set up in Eastern European EU member states who engage workers on what are in their own countries perfectly legal contracts, then send those workers to Britain using the EU's free movement of labour as the vehicle by which those agencies then exploit those workers. In doing this no EU Law is being violated and EU Law supersedes UK Law.

My previous post on this doesn't cover the half of it. The legally binding contract signed back in the labourer's home country requires that:

Contracted labour has to stay in Agency provided accommodation and money is deducted from their wages to cover those costs.
Contracted labour have to surrender their Passports.

In other words they are trapped for the term of their contracts. Now so far in all of this not a single "Brit" has been involved.

Of course I don't, but singling out on group of foreigners as evidence of corrupt foreign employers and ignoring all the appallingly bad indigenous employers, especially those who use immigrants to drive down wages, is simple racism of the king which promotes race hatred, even violence.
The system we live under promotes and encourages exploitation - that some immigrant employers indulge in the free-for-all has s.f.a. to do with anything - especially whether Britain takes in too many immigrants.
Your instigation of race hatred includes those countries that have fair labour laws and infinitely better labour relations than Britain.
Choosing a bad example, sich as the cockle-pickers is crude tub-thumping racism.
Historically, right up to the end of Empire (within my lifetime), Britain treated the people they had dominion over like shit and were noted for doing so.
It's the system that allows abuses to happen that is at fault, not the nationality of those who take advantage of those faults.

Sub-contracting and outsourcing can be used to distance companies from the people who do work for them in a way that protects bad practice and exploitation. That's a mahor reason why it has probably increased in recent years as a way for exployers to avoid regulation that is meant to protect workers and quality. It's a way of avoiding responsibility. And as the court case Teribus quotes demonstrates, it is a pretty successful way of doing that.

It happens in all kinds of areas - local councils do it. When you complain about some faulty bit of work repairing council property the council says it's down to the contractor, the contractor says it's the subcontractor, the subcontractor says it's the council...

It's a serious problem, and too often gets ignored. But most of the time those engaged in this, at the top especially, are natives.

"The system we live under promotes and encourages exploitation"

Well for the last 43 years that's been successively - "the Common Market"; The EEC; the EU.

The type of contracts I referred to would be illegal in the UK, but as the contracts are signed abroad, we have no control over them and if they are legal in the country they are signed in they are enforceable. It is then EU employment laws and the rules governing free movement of labour that provides the loophole for this exploitation. EU could of course make it law that the employment law to be adhered to must be that of the country where the work will actually take place - but that has it's downsides to.

Plenty of those by indigenous employers - an essential part of "the black economy"
As I said, concentrating on only foreign ones is racist.
"the Common Market"
Exploitation of workers by employing cheaper labour predates the E.U. by centuries
19th century mine and and mill owners were having a field day exploiting the starving Irish fleeing the Famine, with the Government happily supporting them by opposing the introduction of Trade Unionism.
The inter-communal racism that came out of that is an accepted fact.
You fellers are still happy to use the same techniques against immigrants today - why abandon something that's served to prop up an exploitative system when it's done its job so well for so long.
The real alternative is to set a minimum living wage - can't let that happen, can we!!

If it was impossible to pay a wage for a nasty job that wasn't sufficient to attract locals, there wouldn't be any particular incentive to employ immigrants, even if they would be willing to work for less. Unless they were better at the job, and that's a matter for our education and training system to address.

It's quite simple really Jim, I am in favour of changing the economic system over a reasonable measure of time.
You on the other hand are in favour of keeping the democratic capitalist system we have at present, but making bloody sure it cannot work effectively. A "no win" situation.

If capitalism is not allowed to create wealth it moves on to somewhere more conducive.....I have sad many times that if we are determined to have a capitalist society and economy, the Conservative Party are the most effective people to run it.
That has always been true in my lifetime Labour borrow and spend without demanding any sacrifices from the working and middle classes. Soaking the rich stops the capitalist system from working effectively, as "the rich" are often the wealth creators.

When's a "reasonable time" Ake - when we're all dead presumably - or perhaps when YOU decide?
We have lost our bargaining position as workers down the years, we no longer have security of employment at work or security of tenure at home, as a result, unemployment and homelessness are soaring.
According to last years's survey, following the last recession, the rich are 64% richer and the poor are 57% poorer
We no longer have an industrial base because it does not benefit the investors to have one - more profitable to swell the dole queues and buy foreign
I asked you for your idea as to how change could be brought about - you never answered, nor will you now.
You have no interest in changing society for the better and have aligned yourself with those who prefer to attack the less fortunate, in this case, refugees and economic migrants rather than to support just change

Wealth created by Captalism is only beneficial when it benefits all - the fact that Britain's main export is money says what needs to be said about exactly how "beneficial" it is to the working people of Britain as a whole

Big difference between German Trades Unions Kevin is that they are forbidden by law from calling "Wildcat Strikes", they have never attempted to hold the Government or the country to ransom to get what they want, no such thing as "flying pickets", again illegal, and they and the employers are subject to compulsory and binding third party arbitration once a dispute has run a defined length of time.

British Trades Unions are also forbidden to call Wilcat Strikes. And in fact Wildcat Strikes is properly the term for what happens when a bunch of workers down tools without being authorised to do so by their union.

And so forth. British Trades Unions have all the restrictions German ones do, and then some, but without the rights which German unions have by law to balance things up.
The arrangements in Germany are essentially the ones designed by representatives of British Trades Unions after the war.

"Muppets is an affectionate term. "

"Can you give an example of me accusing you of making things up when you had not?"
Where to start
David Ben Gurion's ''taken their land' statement, "Benny Morris's' admitting to burying the massacre victim, 'Self-Hating Jews'..... are the ones that spring to mind.
I've said this before - I do not "make up" anything and if I ever felt the need to I would not be part of these debates.
Unlike you, I and those I respect on this forum are here to debate and exchange ideas, not to "win" anything.
"Ignoramous" or o nothing is also another of your stock phrases.

One ofe the most "personal" and "nasty" individuals on this forum is your friend Bobad, certainly not of "the left", - he is one of yours - his distastefully cowardly name-calling and his refusal to even pretend to respond, (as you do) put any bad-tempered response I make make in the shade

Whoops another prem. ejac.
Link to above MODEL FOR BRITAIN
As usual, Teribus gives us only half the story - the bit that suits him.
German Trades Unions are part of the decision making of the companies - they are the workers voice in decision making.
British workers have no such voice leaving them with no negotiation power other than the withdrawal of their labour - the end result being a SHARP DECREASE IN LIVING STANDARDS, zero contracts and a widening gap between haves and have-nots.
Whatever the shortcomings, German workers have a built-in say in their lives, we have not.
Workers do not go on strike without thinking hard first - they do so to maintain a living standard and improve bad conditions - the alternative is to do nothing and watch their working lives deteriorate.
I know from experience (twice in 50 years) that taking industial action is frightening and costly.
The two occasions I was involved were both to prevent the conditions I was employed under being worsened - to prevent apprentices being used as tea-boys and then to prevent tradesmen from being used as pack-mules when our employer halted the practice of transporting tools and heavy equipment to our work-sites.
Much thought and debate went into those decisions.
"Wildcat Strikes" is a term invented by the pro-Tory gutter press.

You did completely misrepresent what Ben Gurion said, and "muppets" are amusing puppet characters popular with children, and in no way a term of abuse.

"Ignoramous" or o nothing is also another of your stock phrases.
Then why can't you find a single example? Because I have never used it.

I do not do abuse and name calling.
Why can't you and Steve stop?

Whoops another prem. ejac.
Link to above MODEL FOR BRITAIN
As usual, Teribus gives us only half the story - the bit that suits him.
German Trades Unions are part of the decision making of the companies - they are the workers voice in decision making.
British workers have no such voice leaving them with no negotiation power other than the withdrawal of their labour - the end result being a SHARP DECREASE IN LIVING STANDARDS, zero contracts and a widening gap between haves and have-nots.
Whatever the shortcomings, German workers have a built-in say in their lives, we have not.
Workers do not go on strike without thinking hard first - they do so to maintain a living standard and improve bad conditions - the alternative is to do nothing and watch their working lives deteriorate.
I know from experience (twice in 50 years) that taking industial action is frightening and costly.
The two occasions I was involved were both to prevent the conditions I was employed under being worsened - to prevent apprentices being used as tea-boys and then to prevent tradesmen from being used as pack-mules when our employer halted the practice of transporting tools and heavy equipment to our work-sites.
Much thought and debate went into those decisions.
"Wildcat Strikes" is a term invented by the pro-Tory gutter press.

Strange...I always thought "wildcat strikes" were those which had not been authorised by the appropriate union?
But what do I know, Jim is the real socialist.

Has this site finally fallen into the hands of the B.N.P. - it certainly seems like it, reading the racist bile of our three caped crusaders.
The most law-abiding, industrious and ambitious section of the population are the million or so Asians who have moved to Britain to better their lot, more often often than not to be greeted by racist filth such as that being vomited here by our three resident 'Christian humanitarians'"

While Nigel Farage was the man solely responsible for getting the notion of the UK leaving the EU firmly on the agenda. When it came to the run up to the actual referendum itself, neither he nor his Political Party formed any part of the "Official" Leave Campaign.

And just for the record it was 17,410,742 votes cast by the electorate of the United Kingdom that will take us out of the EU. The lies told that brought about that result, for many, were the lies told 43 years previously by Ted Heath in 1973 when he conned the British people into believing that we were becoming members of a "trading organisation", when he knew perfectly well it was not.

Back to Trades Union comparison:

You forgot to add in that post that what you were describing was the situation that has pertained post-Thatcher.

The German Trades Unions totally independent from all political parties that decision having been made by the people, whereas here in the UK we have UNITE Boss Len McCluskey boasting about how many Labour MPs "HIS" Union OWNS.

Well yes, Ted Heath lied. As we know, politicos of all persuasions lied in their teeth this time round too. Plus ça change, eh? But let's look at the confirmation referendum in 1975 (under Harold, not Ted). 17,378,581 votes to stay, fewer than half of that number to leave. You want us to accept the latest neck-and-neck result now, claiming that the "people have spoken" (less than 38% of registered electors, but hey ho) but you and your ilk never accepted that incredibly decisive result and have been briefing and organising against the EU/EC ever since. What was that about sauce for geese and ganders...?

"whereas here in the UK we have UNITE Boss Len McCluskey "
The employers federation is made up exclusively of Conservatives
How independent can you get?
The Labour party was created by the trades Union movement to represent workers interests
The problems have arisen when both of them were bought over and ceased to represent the people who created them

I've given my opinion of the racists on this forum among whom you feature and I've said why I believe you are what I think you are.
You want to dispute it by justifying your racism, feel free to do so, otherwise, stop trying to make this another on- to-one
You are doing exactly what you have accused others of doing
Pack it in unless you intend to deliberately wreck this thread

Free vote insisted upon by Wilson in the 1975 first ever UK wide referendum, the constitutional precedent of abandoning collective cabinet responsibility. The referendum was only held because with the free vote in the House of Commons Wilson got it through because of Conservative votes. The vote by the electorate went the way it did was because of repetition of the same lies told in 1973 coupled with scare stories of "doom'n'gloom" that the country would be ruined if we left the EEC that was a lie then as it was a lie when similar predictions were made earlier this year in the run up to the 2016 Referendum.
