European Union to drag USA to WTO over illegal steel tariffs
Patricia Hewitt the "UK" trade and industry secretary said "We are not prepared to allow the US trying to dump their problems on the rest of the world instead of facing up to the challenge of modernising and restructuring their own industry."
She went on to say "We will stand by our steel producers in combating this unjustifiable and deeply regrettable action. .We are not prepared to stand by while British industry and our jobs are put at risk for that length of time."
WE WILL SEE. IT OFTEN SEEMS THAT BLAIR WANTS TO BE THE 51ST US STATE.....
Will he side with the EU, or be a good little US citizen I wonder?
